Redskins place Prioleau on IR, sign 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.
