The Redskins made cuts in order to comply with a mandate to have the roster down to 80 players. The cuts were as follows:
Offensive linemen Xavier Fulton and Corey O’Daniel
Defensive backs Tyrone Grant and Dante Barnes
Linebacker Eric McBride
Tight End Joe Torchia
Kicker Clint Stitser
Quarterback Ben Chappell
and finally third year wide receiver, Malcolm Kelly.
Kelly who had been nursing a foot injury has missed most of camp. He was placed on IR last year after he could not heal from a hamstring injury. In 3 seasons with the team, he only complete one full season of play. In that entire span, he never saw the endzone.
Second round draft pick Jarvis Jenkins was officially placed on the IR.
