Ashburn, VA (Sports Network) – The Washington Redskins terminated the
contract of wideout Donte Stallworth and placed safety Phillip Thomas on
season-ending injured reserve Monday among a slew of roster moves.

Stallworth had been signed by the ‘Skins on June 12, returning to the club for
which he totaled 22 receptions for 309 yards and a pair of touchdowns in 11
games two seasons ago.

Thomas was felled by a torn Lisfranc ligament in his left foot earlier in
August, and subsequent surgery meant recovery time was in the 4-to-5 month
range. Washington made Thomas, out of Fresno State, their fourth-round pick
back in April.

In other roster moves, the reigning NFC East champions placed linebacker
Keenan Robinson on IR, while also waiving cornerback Richard Crawford,
linebackers Jeremy Kimbrough, Ricky Elmore, Quan Sturdivant, fullback Eric
Kettani, kicker John Potter and wide receiver Chip Reeves.
