CB Peyton Thompson Waived, S Da'mon Cromartie-Smith Signed

New, comments

The Redskins made two roster moves today after one player struggled in Thursday's game. Also Jason Hatcher has passed his physical and has been taken off of the PUP List.

Peyton Thompson was signed to the Redskins practice squad last season on November 26th. He was never called up to the 53-man roster, but has been participating in OTAs and Training Camp. That ended today when the Redskins announced he was being released and they have already signed his replacement. Thompson had a pretty bad game last night, and was constantly being targeted when he was in the game. He allowed the Patriots only TD when the man he was covering Brian Tyms got behind him and caught the pass in the end zone.

Thompson has been replaced by safety Da'Mon Cromartie-Smith, who played college ball at UTEP. Cromartie-Smith(27, 6'2" 203lbs) spent the last three seasons on the Pittsburgh Steelers on and off. He has also spent time in the United Football League with the Sacramento Mountain Lions.

Also in the release is the news that Jason Hatcher has passed his physical and will be taken off of the PUP list.  No word on whether he is practicing today.
