The Washington Commanders announce roster cuts to complete their 53-man roster

The roster cuts started yesterday with the leak of a handful of player cuts. The names started pouring in this morning as the team made its way through 28 players to reach their 53-man roster. Ron Rivera said the team has its eyes on other teams’ cuts, potential trades and, of course, filling their 16-man practice squad with players who can develop and contribute this year.

The running back position was a big question mark after Brian Robinson was shot during an attempted carjacking two days ago. He underwent surgery and was released yesterday, and is on Washington’s active roster today. This is good news for his short- and long-term prognosis, and he won’t start the year on the non-football injury list, which should have left him with at least 4 games. Washington retained 4 RBs, but only Antonio Gibson and JD McKissic were in today’s practice.

Washington released 25 players today and placed 3 more on injured reserve. Keith Ismael (concussion) considers injury settlement. Other notable names released today include FA PR/WR Alex Erickson who was beaten by 2nd year PR/WR Dax Milne. Milo Eifler and De’Juan Harris defeated 2020 5ht round pick Khaleke Hudson for the backup LB job. Cornerback is very thin with only 4 on the roster, and one of them is a 7th round rookie.
