The Washington Redskins placed running back Evan Royster on injured reserve Tuesday.

Royster suffered an ankle injury during the Redskins 45-10 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. Royster appeared in 10 games for the Redskins this season playing primarily on special teams. Royster had just two carries for zero yards and one catch for three yards this season.

To replace Royster on the roster, the Redskins promoted running back Jawan Jamison from the practice squad.

Jamison carried 16 times for 54 yards for Washington during the preseason. He’s spent the season on the team’s practice squad.
