The 21-day window to activate him ends Dec. 2, according to the tweet, and he hasn't practiced much last few weeks. The last game he played was exactly two years ago, in college. He tore his ACL on the very last play, the tweet said.

Football Team RB Bryce Love (knee) missed practice Friday. He has been placed on injured reserve.
As we've said numerous times, depth charts can't always be trusted and this could be a prime example. McKissic saw most of his playing time in passing situations while with the Seahawks and Lions, so there figures to be room for several backs to see playing time for Washington. Gibson, of course, has got a ton of press over the past several weeks, especially with the release of Adrian Peterson. Gibson will likely prove to be the player to watch over the long term and should end up being the back to own here.
Washington RB Bryce Love continues to improve despite not sticking out during training camp, according to John Keim of ESPN. "There's a feeling that in a couple of months he could perhaps get close to what he once was at Stanford," wrote Keim. "Early on in Washington's season, it's likely he would have a reduced role."
Head coach Ron Rivera was quoted as saying, "Don't fall asleep on Bryce."
The news is not ideal short-term, but it is good to get confirmation from Washington's coaching staff that Love is showing signs of the runner he was at Stanford. Love's injury history is a major red flag that will only be mitigated by staying off the injury report and aided with strong play when given the opportunity. His value appears to be as a bye-week fill-in as long as he is on the field, but the optimism is welcomed.
