Somebody posted a similar weed in the LCN private Facebook group. It was identified there as "rough rye grass". It basically looks like hay to me. The small purple stem seems to be the key identifying factor.
Since it's a grass, the only way to get rid of it is glyphosate. Either kill the entire area and reseed or paint each individual weed with a Qtip. Other people posted that the root structure isn't very deep (I can confirm this), so just pull it out. I'm not sure if this will work or not.
I have the same thing in my lawn in places where my former fertilizer service overseeded a few years ago. They used a cheap seed, and this is what I got. I've had it for years and it has spread slowly.
I have one primary section that I'm going to kill the entire area in July/August and reseed in the Fall. I also have a few more plants that have spread throughout the yard. I'm going to try to paint some of these with Roundup and pull others and see how each method works. I've had it for so long I can see it in my yard immediately, so I'll know if it comes back.

Trying to identify this weed that is growing faster/taller then TTTF and lighter green in color. I’m hoping it’s not dallisgrass as what my local nursery told me. I’m leaning more of some type of perennial ryegrass.
