Ten thoughts on the Washington Redskins' roster:
I wasn't surprised by any of the cuts, which is a rarity. Usually there are one or two that either you didn't see coming or involved a bigger name. But the fact that linebacker Terrance Plummer was cut (I had him on my 53-man projected roster)? Not exactly a shocker.
The Redskins return to practice with a much smaller roster after cutting it to the final 53. Here are three areas of interest for your wake-up call:
Roster tinkering. It would be surprising if the Redskins don't tweak their roster with a move or two over the next few days. Happens all the time. So some players who were given the last spots can't feel comfortable until they get to Wednesday morning. I wouldn't be surprised if they added another linebacker (they only have eight). I was fine with them cutting outside linebacker Houston Bates; flashed early, but when he faced better tackles he was quiet. But there will still be some nervous people at Redskins Park.
NEW YORK -- An NFL spokesman says the doctor who reversed course on Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III's post-concussion playing status has resigned and been replaced as the team's independent neurological consultant.
The Washington Redskins competed their final cuts, settling on their initial 53-man roster.
The finished product - if you can call it that - features next to no surprises. Based on the way things played out in the preseason, players' bodies of work spoke volumes.
