It's hard to see the details in the pictures but compare with witch grass, Panicum capillare, in these pictures:

Thank you Sooby they look similar but the Panicum capillare seed heads are fuller but they have to be related they have too many similarities . These plants are pale green compared to the rest of the lawn and only stand about 6 inches tall and each clump only contains only 4 or 5 blades of grass. There about 12 plants that are scattered around just one area, maybe a 10ftx10ft area in the yard.

There are several species of Panicum and it can be hard to differentiate. You might try matching it up using this key. Mowing may also change its height:
