Redskins Cut 9

Picture from examiner.com
Ryan O'Halloran reported today that the Washington Redskins have cut nine more players from their roster. Most notable is Malcolm Kelly. For much of his short Redskins career Kelly was plagued by injuries. Of the ten players selected by the Redskins in the draft three years ago, only four of them remain on the team. Way to go, Vinny! You know how to pick 'em!

The list of players cut by the Redskins today looks like this:

DB Dante Barnes
QB Ben Chappell
OL Xavier Fulton
DB Tyron Grant
WR Malcolm Kelly
LB Eric McBride
OL Corey O'Daniel
K Clint Stitser
TE Joe Torchia

The Redskins still have 80 players on roster and they are expected to put defensive end Jarvis Jenkins and the season ending injured reserve list due to a knee injury.

Judgement day for most third and fourth string players comes after the final preseason game. The Redskins will then need to delicately trim their roster of 80 players down to 53 for opening day.
