ASHBURN, Va. -- Running back Tashard Choice has been released by the Washington Redskins, two days after making his debut for them against his former team, the Dallas Cowboys.

In other moves Tuesday, the Redskins signed running back Evan Royster to their active roster from their practice squad and added running back Tristan Davis to the practice squad.

Choice was claimed by Washington after he was waived by Dallas late last month. He appeared in one game with the Redskins, carrying six times for 7 yards in a 27-24 overtime loss to the Cowboys on Sunday.

The Redskins took Royster in the sixth round of April's draft. Davis was on Washington's practice squad before being released Nov. 8.
