Washington made the news of Tim Settle's return official and added two more players that have cleared COVID-19 protocols. Those players are not Taylor Heinicke and Kyle Allen, who remain in isolation in Virginia. Sammis Reyes posted a picture on the Snyder's private jet. Reyes has been cleared, but has also been ruled out for tonight's game due to a concussion he was dealing with before going on the Reserve list. The team also gets CB Troy Apke back tonight.

Washington also elevated 4 players from the practice squad:

FB Alex Armah

LB De’Jon Harris

QB Kyle Shurmur

OT David Steinmetz

All 4 of these players have been protected members of the practice squad in the past (3 of them this week). Kyle Shurmur will be active for the first time this year, and will serve as starting QB Garrett Gilbert's backup. FB Alex Armah will serve as RB and TE depth tonight.

Kevin Sheehan reported the news shortly before the official announcement, but the loss of McKissic is still a big blow to Washington's offense. JD McKissic has been out since suffering a concussion against the Seahawks. He cleared protocols, but was also dealing with a neck injury. He had already been ruled out for tonight's game, but will now head to Injured reserve, and his season is likely over.
