The Washington Football Team released running back Lamar Miller Sunday morning, the club announced Sunday.

In addition to Miller, Washington also cut receiver Kelvin Harmon and activated wideout Curtis Samuel off the physically unable to perform list.

Miller hasn't recorded a rushing attempt since his Pro Bowl season with the Houston Texans in 2018. He missed the 2019 campaign with a torn ACL and only appeared in one game with the Chicago Bears in 2020 during Week 10, catching two passes for six yards.

Washington signed the 30-year-old off the Bears' practice squad in December 2020, and he later agreed to stay with the team on a one-year deal in March 2021.

Miller was productive for the Miami Dolphins and Texans prior to his ACL tear. He rushed for 800-plus yards in six straight seasons between 2012 and 2018 and eclipsed the 1,000-yard mark in two of those campaigns.

Washington's running back depth remains strong following Miller's departure. Antonio Gibson and J.D. McKissic are projected to handle the majority of the team's backfield duties this coming season, with Peyton Barber likely also contributing.
