Today's roster moves. Reaves and Forrest officially on IR plus a lot of shifting around on the practice squadhttps://t.co/JzzuVFcrYZ— Zach Selby (@ZachSelbyWC) October 10, 2023
Update: More info on Jeremy Reaves
#Commanders DB Jeremy Reaves, a first-team All-Pro special teamer last year, suffered a partially torn ACL on Thursday and could miss the rest of the season, sources say. Reaves is gathering more medical opinions before making a decision on his immediate future.— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) October 10, 2023
The Washington Commanders remained relatively healthy going into their Week 5 Thursday Night Football game against the Chicago Bears. Ron Rivera opened up his Monday presser with news that two defensive players would be heading to injured reserve. Darrick Forrest reportedly suffered a shoulder fracture and All-Pro special teamer Jeremy Reaves suffered a knee injury on Thursday. Rivera said they wouldn’t know the length of time either player would be on IR until they did further testing, but Forrest’s injury sounds like it’s more than a short-term stint.
There were two reported roster moves before Rivera announced the injury news, and another move was reported shortly after the presser. The Washington Commanders have reportedly signed DL Joshua Pryor and S Joshua Kalu to their practice squad. Both players were with the team during training camp and the preseason, and were released at roster cutdowns before the season started. Safety Terrell Burgess was also released, but was signed to the practice squad. He’s getting signed to the 53-man roster as the team looks for more safety depth.
Washington would have one open spot after today’s announced and reported roster moves, and they would likely be signing another player off of the practice squad.
