RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Jerry Rice Jr. has been placed on injured reserve after tearing the labrum in his left shoulder at Washington Redskins training camp.

The Redskins initially designated Rice as "waived-injured." He was moved to IR on Monday after clearing waivers.

The Redskins replaced Rice on the roster by signing defensive lineman Jeremy Towns, an un-drafted rookie from Samford.

Rice was hurt last week when he fell on his shoulder while trying to catch a pass in the end zone.

Rice was undrafted out of UNLV. His father played 20 NFL seasons and is in the Hall of Fame.
