Redskins released P Durant Brooks with an injury settlement.

Brooks' hip flexor wasn't a season-ender, but his play in the Skins' first five games is career threatening. Ryan Plackemeier has taken over in D.C.

Redskins waived/injured P Durant Brooks.

Brooks was terrible in six games to start the season, but a hip flexor may have been at the root of the problem. He was a stud at Georgia Tech and could get another shot to start in 2009 after finishing this year on I.R.

According to Redskins beat reporter Jason La Canfora, P Durant Brooks was getting "ripped by his teammates on the sidelines" after a couple of errant punts.

La Confora adds, "The Redskins have to make a change. Otherwise, something like this will affect morale after a while... Right now, with a slim margin of victory or defeat most weeks, the team needs a guy who can punt 42 yards with some height and consistency." Brooks ranks dead last in average length among active punters.

Redskins beat reporter Jason La Canfora writes that coach Jim Zorn "tore (P Durant Brooks) up on the sidelines like nothing I've seen around here for a long time" during the team's Week 3 win.

"The tongue-lashing seemed to go on forever," La Canfora adds. Brooks, a sixth-round pick, got the job in camp despite being outplayed by Derrick Frost. Brooks currently ranks 31st in the NFL in net average. Frost is 7th.

Redskins agreed to terms with sixth-round P Durant Brooks.

Brooks won the Ray Guy Award as a senior at Georgia Tech, averaging a stellar 40.6 net yards per punt. It would be quite an upset if he doesn't start over Derrick Frost this year.
