Washington activates 4 players on COVID roster ahead of stupidly rescheduled Eagles game
the Washington football team activated four players from their reserve / COVID-19 roster on Saturday morning:
- Sweatshirt DE Montez
- DT Jonathan Allen
- BY James Smith-Williams
- BY Casey Toohill
Washington has also officially designated Sweat to resume training since he was on the injured reserve (not on the active list) before being on the COVID list.
This is good news for Washington, given that its defensive line seemed rather worn out. Sweat is the team’s peak rusher, especially with Chase Young on IR. Allen leads the football team in the sacks. JSW and Toohill contribute to the rotation of the edges.
The good news from Washington is obviously not such good news for the Philadelphia Eagles, who are to be inexplicably punished for the football team facing a COVID epidemic. An outbreak that appears to originate from a fiercely unvaccinated player in Sweat.
It’s really rich that Sweat will definitely play in this game which has been moved from Sunday to Tuesday, isn’t it? What a great deserved reward for him. (Silver lining: At least Eagles fans can boo him at Lincoln Financial Field now.)
Despite these returns, Washington still has a long list of COVIDs. But it is possible that more of them will be activated before Tuesday. It’s also possible that other people will be on the list when they need to take tests on Monday. And the same goes for the Eagles.
So let’s say Washington gets a lot of players back by Tuesday, but by then the Eagles have a bunch of positive tests. Will playing then always be fairer, or what? ï¸
