Hook ‘em Redskins: Robinson to IR, Muckelroy signed

The Redskins swapped out one fourth-round linebacker from Texas with another Monday.

After putting Keenan Robinson on injured reserve with a torn right pectoral muscle, the Redskins signed Roddrick Muckelroy to replace him.

Robinson was their own fourth-rounder this year. Muckelroy was the Bengals fourth-rounder in 2010.

“We liked him in the draft, and we were glad he was out there,” coach Mike Shanahan said, via Rich Campbell of the Washington Times. “When you lose a player and you get a guy like him to come into your system, you feel pretty fortunate.”

Muckelroy spent parts of three seasons with the Bengals, where he was primarily a special teams player, but missed all of 2011 with a torn Achilles.

Shanahan said Robinson would need surgery, and would face a five-month recovery.

    I hope Mara ok’d this move, I’d hate to lose additional cap space or draft picks…..

    another one down… seems like the skins could almost field a team with the number of players that have been put on IR this season

    Even if he approved it, he’d still take it back 2 years later.

    Good luck Muck! You’re a classy dude and a great special teamer at a minimum. I thought he turned in some quality snaps at LB while he was a Bengal as well… Hopefully he gets a legimitate shot for the Skins!
