The Washington Redskins signed running back Keiland Williams and released running back Ryan Grant.

Grant spent four weeks on the Redskins roster and had just one carry for five yards.

Williams was released by the Lions on Oct. 18. He played for the Redskins as a rookie in 2010.

Washington signed Williams as a college free agent out of LSU.

Williams has played in 35 career games with three starts, compiling 125 rushing attempts for 459 yards and five rushing touchdowns. He also has 49 career receptions for 380 receiving yards and two receiving touchdowns.

Prior to being released by Detroit, Williams had been with the Lions since Sept. 4, 2011, when he was claimed off of waivers.
