Redskins place Prioleau on IR, sign Burns

Associated Press

ASHBURN, Va. -- The Washington Redskins placed safety Pierson Prioleau on injured reserve Wednesday and signed safety Curry Burns.

Prioleau tore the ACL in his right knee on the opening kickoff of Monday night's loss to Minnesota. He will have surgery in about two weeks and is out for the season.

Burns, from Louisville, spent last year on the Redskins practice squad and was in training camp this year. He was among the last round of cuts on Sept. 2.
