Washington's Reserve/COVID-19 list is down to 4 players after another wave hit the team last week. Washington activated RT Sam Cosmi and CB Darryl Roberts today. This was Roberts second time on the list this month. Cosmi has dealt with several injuries during his rookie year, but should be available for Sunday's season finale against the Giants in New Jersey.

Washington also activated two practice squad offensive linemen(OT David Steinmetz, G Beau Benzschawel). This leaves RB Antonio Gibson, G Ereck Flowers, MVP Tress Way, and practice squad QB Kyle Shurmur on the Reserve/COVID-19 list. All of them should be available to play this week depending on their recovery. Several players have talked about not feeling normal for weeks after testing positive.

Today's final roster move was signing LB De'Jon Harris from the practice squad. He has been elevated the last two weeks. He played 14 snaps against the Cowboys when Cole Holcomb and Jamin Davis were both out. Last week he only played on special teams.

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 aid of fever-reducing medication; other symptoms must be “resolved or improved”; the 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.
