NFL Roster Cuts 2011: Washington Redskins Release Four More, Complete Cuts

The Washington Redskins have completed their round of NFL roster cuts, getting their squad down to 80 players prior to the 4 p.m. Tuesday deadline. The four most recent players released are defensive back Dante Barnes, defensive back Tyrone Grant, offensive lineman Corey O'Daniel and tight end Joe Torchia, according to a team release. They join quarterback Ben Chappell, offensive lineman Xavier Fulton, linebacker Eric McBride and wide receiver Malcolm Kelly as the players released on Tuesday.

Kelly is the most significant of the nine cuts, given his status as a former second-round pick of the team back in 2008. He ended up receiving an injury settlement from the club stemming from his hamstring and knee issues that have plagued him. The Redskins also cleared a roster spot by sending defensive lineman Jarvis Jenkins to injured reserve following an ACL tear.

The Redskins now have until September 3 to get down to the 53-man roster they will carry into the NFL's regular season.

We'll be keeping track of all the roster moves that the Redskins make, on Tuesday and throughout the week, in this StoryStream, but check out Hogs Haven for more information.
