The Washington Football Team released their final injury report for today’s game on Friday and ruled out LB Cole Holcomb and OL Saahdiq Charles. Holcomb also missed last week’s game with a knee injury. Charles has been inactive all year, and has been dealing with leg injuries since training camp.
CB Kendall Fuller will make his return to the field for Washington today after missing the first two weeks with a knee injury. Fuller will offer a big boost to the secondary and can be used in multiple positions and packages. Danny Johnson lands on the inactives list due to Fuller’s return.
The two practice squad players who were elevated yesterday will be active today. LB Jared Norris will take Cole Holcomb’s snaps on special teams again. OL Joshua Garnett will be guard depth after the team placed Brandon Scherff on IR with a sprained MCL this week. Morgan Moses is also active today after being listed as questionable with a hip injury
WR Cam Sims was signed to the main roster after being elevated the first two weeks, and is active again today. He will be joined by Isaiah Wright who could finally be asked to return kicks. Steven Sims Jr. had a bad fumble last week against the Cardinals and also injured his toe. It could be the undrafted rookies time to prove he belongs in the big leagues.
