Redskins released ILB Perry Riley and DE Stephen Paea.

Riley struggled to come back from December foot surgery and ended up losing his job to Mason Foster. Set to earn just over $5 million, he cost too much to keep around as a backup. Signed to a four-year, $21 million contract last year, Paea spent most of training camp with the third-team defense.

Redskins activated ILB Perry Riley from the active/PUP list.

Well that was fast. Riley was placed on PUP with a minor foot injury yesterday but apparently he only needed a day to get his bearings. He'll compete with Will Compton and Mason Foster for snaps at inside linebacker.

Redskins ILB Perry Riley (foot) is questionable for Sunday's Wild Card game.

Redskins ILB Perry Riley (knee, questionable) is unlikely to play Week 6 against the Cardinals.

"It’s difficult to see Riley playing," CSN Washington's Rich Tandler said. "He has not practiced all week and has labored to get through very light agility drills during the portion of practice that reporters can observe." Will Compton will start opposite Keenan Robinson if Riley cannot go.
