ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — The Washington Redskins have cut Bacarri Rambo after the second-year safety struggled in the team's first two games.

Rambo was released Tuesday to make room for safety Brandon Meriweather, who was restored to the roster after serving a two-game suspension for a helmet-to-helmet hit.

Rambo was a sixth-round draft pick in 2013 out of Georgia and emerged from last year's training camp with a starting job, but he consistently missed tackles and soon was benched.

Rambo returned to start this season during Meriweather's suspension, but he gave up a big play in each of the first two games and was benched again in the second half of Sunday's win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.
