    The Washington Redskins did their part, letting go of 22 players Friday, including some notable names. Various reports have accumulated the list below throughout the day, but the 'Skins have officially confirmed that the following players are no longer members of the team:

    1. RB Tim Hightower
    2. WR Anthony Armstrong
    3. WR Terrence Austin
    4. DB Travon Bellamy
    5. FB Dorson Boyce

    Safety Tanard Jackson has been suspended by the NFL indefinitely for violating the league's substance abuse policy. Of course, the 'Skins also parted ways with tight end Chris Cooley earlier this week. The Redskins are moving forward with 52 players, giving them room to add someone else in the future.
