The Redskins waived/injured Stroman (undisclosed) on Tuesday, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.
Stroman played a special-teams role in the season opener. According to Craig Hoffman of 106-7 The Fan Washington, Stroman cleared waivers Wednesday and was placed on injured reserve.
Stroman (groin) recorded two tackles during Thursday's 23-13 preseason loss to the Bengals.
Stroman played 25 defensive snaps Thursday, and appears to have fully recovered from his groin injury. The second-year pro will resume competing for a depth role in Washington.
Stroman did not practice Sunday due to a groin injury, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
The severity of Stroman's injury is unknown at this time, so he should be considered day-to-day for now. Stroman is expected to compete for a depth role in the secondary this preseason.
Stroman likely will compete with Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and a few other players for a depth role, Andrew Breitfelder of the team's official website reports.
Stroman started three games and played 386 defensive snaps as a rookie last season, filling in for Quinton Dunbar (shin) late in the year. With Dunbar expected to return healthy alongside Josh Norman and Fabian Moreau, the 2018 seventh-round pick may be left to compete for the No. 4 cornerback job.
Stroman finished his rookie season with 37 tackles (30 solo), an interception, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery in 15 games, playing 386 snaps on offense and 179 on special teams.
The seventh-round pick took his lumps in coverage, but he also displayed some playmaking skills and was a regular contributor on special teams. Stroman might challenge Fabian Moreau for the nickelback job in 2019, or perhaps even push for a starting job outside if Washington decides to move on from Josh Norman.
