The Washington Football Team has been hit hard by COVID-19.

Today defensive tackle Jonathan Allen was one of four Washington players who tested positive for COVID-19, according to JP Finlay of

The team announced that Allen, linebacker David Mayo, practice squad defensive end William Bradley-King and practice squad tight end Temarrick Hemingway have been placed on COVID-19 reserve.

Allen, the Football Team’s leader in sacks and defensive captain, is vaccinated, which means he can return as soon as he tests negative for two days in a row.

Washington’s defensive line was down defensive ends Montez Sweat, Casey Toohill and James Smith-Williams because of COVID-19 in yesterday’s loss to the Cowboys.

At this point Washington does not know how many of those players will be back in time for Sunday’s game against the Eagles.

  1. Those defensive ends being out made a big difference in the first half against Dallas.

  2. This is starting to look like the strike season where every team will be signing street free agents.

  3. Having to play without Allen would be a huge deal. He has definitely been their best player this season.
