Whether veteran or rookie, “cut day” are two words you never want to hear.
That day is coming up quickly for the Washington Redskins — as in, by 9 p.m. Friday, the team must cut down its roster from 75 players to its final 53 men.
By noon on Saturday, an additional eight players are signed to the team’s practice squad.
Today is an off day for the Redskins players, who are fresh off their 30-3 preseason finale win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The coaching staff, however, is not taking the day off, and you can be sure that they’re meeting throughout the day today and tomorrow to make some difficult decisions.
And, as usual, several players went to Twitter in the past few hours to talk about cut day and their hopes for the rest of the week:

Praying for all my brothers on this unfortunate cut day—
