Washington also placed Kato Serwanga on injured reserve. Royal's placement on IR was a mild surprise. He had a high ankle sprain, an injury that often takes four to six weeks to heal. But it also can linger a long time. Royal had played with the first unit against New England and would have played a lot.
Washington cut Skaggs, Coleman, kicker James Tuthill, running back
Robert Gillespie, defensive lineman Bernard Jackson and defensive back
Ricot Joseph. The Redskins also released linebacker Shamar Finney with
an injury settlement.
This means linebacker Lemar Marshall made the final roster. Also, three
defensive ends, Greg Scott, Ladairis Jackson and Otis Leverette survived
the final cuts. Coleman's poor play against New England allowed Alex
Sulfsted to make the final 53. Sulfsted can play guard and tackle.
Coleman and Gillespie are prime candidates for the practice squad.
Skaggs also is eligible.
