The Redskins have placed their second receiver on injured reserve in as many days.

Seventh-round pick Trey Quinn joins Cam Sims on the injured reserve after both receivers sustained high-ankle sprains in Sunday's season opener.

Sims was placed on IR on Tuesday and had ankle surgery Wednesday morning. The hope was that, with only Sims going on IR on Tuesday, that maybe Quinn's injury may be less severe. That was not the case.

Quinn was not at practice on Wednesday. The reason being? He also underwent ankle surgery in the morning.

The good news? Both Sims and Quinn have an expected recovery of six-to-seven weeks.

The Redskins also signed wide receiver Jehu Chesson from the practice squad to their active roster. Chesson – 6-foot-2, 204 pounds – was a fourth-round pick (Chiefs) out of Michigan in 2017.

In the event Maurice Harris (concussion) can't go against Indianapolis, Jordan Reed, not Chesson, would be the likely backup in the slot.

"If something were to happen to Jamison, we'd probably put Jordan there full time if need be," Jay Gruden told reporters. "Jordan is a great slot receiver. He can do everything."
