Update: Washington announces today's moves, and also officially activates Sam Cosmi and Montez Sweat from injured reserve

Washington was trending in the right direction with players on the Reserve/COVID-19 list. They have had 25 players go on the list since December 8th, and 9 of them have been cleared to return. That left 16 players on the list going into today. Washington is preparing for tomorrow night's rescheduled game against the Eagles in Philadelphia.

One more player will reportedly be activated today which would have left 15 players unavailable tomorrow. DT Matt Ioannidis will be removed from the list and rejoins a defensive line that also got Jonathan Allen and Montez Sweat over the last few days.

That news was quickly followed by reports that RG Brandon Scherff will be placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list today. This will be a other blow to an offensive line that has been dealing with injuries to starters and backups all year. Washington’s depth will once again be tested.

Taylor Heinicke and Kyle Allen have not been cleared from the reserve list. Washington signed QB Garrett Gilbert from the Patriots practice squad and there's a real chance he could get the start this week. One good thing to note is rookie RT Sam Cosmi is returning from IR this week and will thankfully be relieving Cornelius Lucas of his starting job.
