Washington Roster Update: Sam Cosmi, Kyle Shurmur, and Tress Way placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list

2 up 3 down

NFL: Washington Football Team at Atlanta Falcons Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

Update: Tress Way has been placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 lost after missing today's practice due to illness

Washington placed two players on the Reserve/COVID-19 list today. They were down to two players after placing 28 players on the list since December 8th. Yesterday saw 3 mote players added. Today OT Sam Cosmi and QB Kyle Shurmur were added. Cosmi has been on and off the active list for most of the season dealing with several injuries. He will have an opportunity to return before Sunday's game, but this is more missed time during his rookie season.

Ron Rivera talked about the precautions the team is taking with their QBs to prevent another game like two weeks ago when Garrett Gilbert started against the Eagles. Taylor Heinicke and Kyle Allen were both on the Reserve/COVID-19 list and couldn't get cleared in time for the postponed Tuesday night game. Today it's practice squad QB Kyle Shurmur going on the list. Washington's 3 QBs on the roster are still available.

Two players were also cleared from COVID-19 protocols today. DE Nate Orchard and practice squad C/G Zack Bailey will rejoin the team and be available for Sunday's home game against the Eagles.

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.
