ASHBURN, Va. --   Elliott Jermyn and the Washington Football Team have mutually parted ways.

He worked under long-time head athletic trainer Larry Hess, who was fired more than a year ago, for much of his tenure. Jermyn as working under Ryan Vermillion since Ron Rivera took over football operations.

Vermillion, the current head athletic trainer of the Washington Football Team, returned to the organization a couple of weeks after Rivera. Early in his career, he had worked for the team as well.

Jermyn already has a new job lined up as he'll be working with Dr. Hirad Bagy at the United Wellness Center.

Every day, dealing with a roster of either 90 players (sometimes a few less) or 53 players and an ever changing practice squad -- Jermyn and other trainers in his group would get players ready to practice, play or assess what their needs were. 

Sounds easy but it wasn't.
