Redskins Re-sign Farris; Lloyd Placed On IR

The Redskins have signed wide receiver Jimmy Farris to replace Brandon Lloyd on the roster, the team announced on Thursday.

Lloyd was placed on injured reserve with a fractured right clavicle. He suffered the injury in practice on Wednesday.

Farris was at Redskins Park on Thursday and expected to participate in practice. His familiarity with the Redskins' offense should help his transition back to the team.

Farris, regarded as a high-effort and gritty player, spent time with the Redskins during the 2005 season and the 2006 preseason.

In 2005, he was active for four games, including the Redskins' Divisional Playoff game against Seattle, and caught one pass for 18 yards. He also recorded two special teams tackles.

The 6-0, 196-pound originally joined the NFL as a undrafted rookie free agent with the San Francisco 49ers.

He has spent time with five different teams in his career, including the 49ers, New England Patriots, Atlanta Falcons and Redskins. He was most recently with the Jacksonville Jaguars in training camp last summer.

Farris has played in a total of 34 NFL games, compiling seven receptions for 118 yards and two touchdowns.
