Redskins promote Jamison, place Royster on IR

The Washington Redskins have promoted rookie running back Jawan

Jamison to the active roster.

The Redskins made the move Tuesday to replace running back Evan

Royster, who was put on injured reserve.

Jamison was taken in the seventh round of the draft. He was cut

at the end of preseason and spent the first 14 weeks of the regular

season on the practice squad.

Royster left Sunday’s loss to the Kansas City Chiefs with a high

left ankle sprain.

The Redskins also signed running back Miguel Maysonet to the

practice squad.
