The Redskins have released linebacker Robert Henson. The source for this report is Henson himself via his Twitter account:
@Mr_Henson51 Just got released later Redskin faithful it's been real!! #Redskins
The writing was on the wall for Henson, a sixth-round draft pick of the Redskins in 2009, when the team brough back linebacker Rocky McInosh. Henson probably was on the bubble for making the roster before that and the return of last year's starting Jack linebacker sealed his fate.
Henson has been unable to practice during training camp as he recovers from a knee injury suffered in the preseason last year. He played in six games for the Redskins, all of them in 2009.
