The Washington Football Team’s defensive line just got a lot healthier.

Washington announced today that defensive tackle Jonathan Allen, defensive end James Smith-Williams, defensive end Montez Sweat and defensive end Casey Toohill have all been activated from the COVID-19 reserve list. (Sweat has simultaneously been activated from injured reserve.)

The NFL decided to move Washington’s upcoming game against Philadelphia from Sunday to Tuesday to give Washington more time to get healthy after a severe COVID-19 outbreak on the team.

Washington also activated linebacker Khaleke Hudson, but he was simultaneously placed on injured reserve.

The Football Team also signed cornerback D.J. Hayden to the practice squad.

  1. So if the eagles have significant players test positive before Tuesday do they move it again?

    Didn’t think so. The NFK is the next joke of a league I won’t be watching much longer unless there are significant changes.

  2. uhoh – the philadelphia team is in for a long day with sweat and allen camping out in the backfield.

  3. The eagles should get a touchdown for the redskins penalty. Snyder gets away with everything! Then the eagles have less time between games. Major disadvantage. Not going old for play er safety.
