LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. – The Washington Redskins announced today that they have signed free agent running back Ryan Grant. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. The team placed running back Roy Helu, Jr. on its Reserve/Injured list.

He was one of only four players to post consecutive 1,200-yard rushing seasons in 2008 and 2009, joining former first round picks Chris Johnson, Thomas Jones and Adrian Peterson.

Grant played collegiately at Notre Dame from 2001-04, appearing in 41 games with 26 starts and becoming a four-year letterman.
