The Washington Redskins continued their cuts in advance of Tuesday’s 4 p.m. deadline to get the roster down to 75 players.
The team released kicker John Potter, offensive tackle Jeremy Trueblood, wide receiver Chip Reeves and linebackers Quan Sturdivant and linebacker Ricky Elmore, according to people with knowledge of the situation.
The locker of linebacker Roddrick Muckelroy also was empty, and the name plate had been removed by the time the locker room was open to reporters Monday morning.
The team was reportedly working on an injury settlement for offensive lineman Jacolby Ashworth, but had yet to finalize those negotiations.
Washington entered the week with 88 players on the roster, but four of them – safety Phillip Thomas, linebackers Keenan Robinson and Jeremy Kimbrough, and cornerback Richard Crawford – have suffered season-ending injuries.
The Redskins must cut their roster from 75 to 53 players by Saturday evening.
