Update: Washington placed practiced squad OL Beau Benzschawel on the Reserve/COVID-19 list.

Washington placed two players on the Reserve/COVID-19 list today. This was down to two players after placing 28 players on the list since December 8th. Darryl Roberts was one of the first players placed on the list at the start of the outbreak, but he was quickly cleared. Now he has landed on the list for the 2nd time this month. Washington also added practice squad OT David Steinmetz to the list today.

The NFL changed their COVID-19 quarantine rules this week to match changes made to the CDC's recommendations. They cut the standard isolation period after a positive test for asymptomatic individuals from 10 days to five days regardless of vaccination status. A player must clear at least 24 hours since their last fever without the aide of fever-reducing medication; other symptoms must be “resolved or improved”; individual must be cleared by team doctor in consultation with ICS and NFL; and any local regulations or requirements have been satisfied. Vaccinated players can still come back earlier if the meet the NFL's testing criteria.
