Weed Id needed

I know it might be a shot in the Dark with these pictures but can someone help me identify this weed from the pictures the customer sent me. This is in the transition zone 6. The soil is fairly sandy

Thanks in advance

Looks to me like foxtail that's been cut down.

I agree, but it doesn't have the foxtail seedhead, even before it was mowed

Would take some time, more then a few weeks for those to grow though so your mowing before it has a chance to show.

You mention the pics were sent to you; where from I see your in Cincinnati so are the pics from that area as well? I thought that was way north of the transition zone?

Can't be crabgrass this early that far north. I still say Foxtail

Crabgrass is similar to foxtail--too early for either to appear.
However, I don't know this one. Could be annual rye grass. Is it red at the bulb-shaped base? Is it uniformly distributed...as though it were contained in a carefully mixed seed mixture? (Poor choice of seed last fall.)
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&s...g.iX9vT5OD9H8I am thinking it is a perennial grass which would have been present also in the fall... orchard grass comes to mind. Are the lower stems flat like orchard grass?

I agree looks more like rye to me too especially if it it's outgrowing the other this time of year, it will die off once it hits 80 not sure what will take it out of cool season turf 3 way should stress it as it warms up but it does easily hand pull btw is that fescue in Cincinnati ? My moms movin to Akron just wondered what type of turf is common there

rye, you can tell by the root being purple.
