LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — The Washington Redskins have parted ways with backup cornerback D.J. Johnson for a second time.

The 27-year-old journeyman from Jackson State was cut by the team on Tuesday, 106.7 The Fan confirms.

Washington first signed Johnson off the Minnesota Vikings practice squad in 2011 and released him three weeks later.

Following short stints with the Philadelphia Eagles and Indianapolis Colts, the Redskins re-signed him to their practice squad this past October.

He was activated to the 53-man roster on Nov. 6 and appeared in seven games, notching eight tackles along the way.

An ankle injury landed Johnson on season-ending injured reserve prior to the postseason contest against the Seattle Seahawks.
