Washington Roster Moves: Cole Holcomb placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list; Two more players taken off

Two up, one down

NFL: Dallas Cowboys at Washington Football Team Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Washington Football Team Head Coach Ron Rivera told reporters earlier that OT Cornelius Lucas had cleared COVID-19 protocols, and would rejoin the team today. He also said that several more players were hopefully going to be cleared soon, including his top two QBs. Washington did clear Lucas, and also took practice squad DE William Bradley-King off the Reserve/COVID-19 list.

Washington also announced that starting LB Cole Holcomb has been placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list. He joins fellow LBs David Mayo and Milo Eifler, who remain out due to protocols. Washington's list now sits at 12 players waiting to be activated. There are 6 players on offense and 6 players on defense.

Washington plays the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football in a must-win game if they want any chance at making the playoffs this year. They are likely to have both QBs, and most of the rest of the players still on the Reserve list back in time to play Dallas, but the flight to Dallas is a little longer than the flight to Philly if there are any last minute activations. The late start time for SNF may prove to be an advantage in this regard.

Washington made several roster moves to deal with the outbreak, and signed players to fill roster holes. As players get activated from the list, some of these new players will have to be released back onto the streets to make room for returning players. DE Hercules Mata'afa is one of those players, the team released him today. He had been signed to the practice squad 8 days ago.
