ASHBURN, Va. (AP) Even with uncertainty about the future of Kirk Cousins, the Washington Redskins cut Nate Sudfeld to go with just two quarterbacks on their initial 53-man roster.

Sudfeld, a developmental prospect after being a sixth-round pick out of Indiana in 2016, was among the team’s most notable cuts made Saturday before the deadline. Cousins is playing a second consecutive season on the franchise tag and could cost $34 million if retained under the same terms in 2018.

The only other quarterback on the roster is 30-year-old Colt McCoy, who’s under contract for the next two seasons.
