ASHBURN, Va. (AP) The Washington Redskins have released Kyshoen Jarrett after the safety failed his physical before training camp.

Jarrett sustained nerve damage to a shoulder in the regular-season finale against Dallas. He didn't participate in any offseason activities. Coach Jay Gruden said in May that the 23-year-old player was seeing a specialist in Denver.

Jarrett, a Virginia Tech product, appeared in all 16 regular-season games in his rookie year and started six. He had 58 tackles, which includes his time on special teams.

Jarrett's release leaves 88 players on the roster. The Redskins open camp Thursday in Richmond, Virginia.
