Flanagan (undisclosed) has landed on the Redskins' injured reserve ​per the NFL's official transaction log.
Flanagan was waived/injured by the team but went unclaimed on the wire. He will now spend the season on IR unless he can reach an injury settlement once his heath returns to par.
Flanagan (undisclosed) was part of the rehab group at Sunday's practice, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.
The severity of the injury remains unclear, but it's likely that Flanagan is just dealing with normal bumps and bruises of training camp. As long as the 24-year-old is sidelined, expect J.P. Holtz and Jeremy Sprinkle to receive the bulk of the depth reps at tight end.
Flanagan finished his rookie season with one catch for 14 yards in three games.
The undrafted rookie out of Pitt didn't survive the preseason in Washington but eventually joined the 53-man roster when Jordan Reed (foot) and Vernon Davis (concussion) were unavailable in December. Flanagan will need to battle for a roster spot in 2019, presumably hoping to land a job as a blocking-focused No. 3 tight end.
Flanagan signed a contract with the Redskins on Saturday.
Flanagan signed with the Redskins as an undrafted rookie in May but failed to survive roster cutdowns. The 23-year-old rejoins the team with starting tight end Jordan Reed (foot) ruled out for Sunday's game, and should serve as the team's No. 3 tight end while Reed is sidelined.
