Jonathan Allen placed on reserve / COVID-19 list


The Washington football team was without multiple players in a Week 14 loss to the Dallas Cowboys due to COVID-19. Montez Sweat, Casey Toohill, James Smith-Williams, Khaleke Hudson and Darryl Roberts all missed Sunday’s game after Washington put them on the reserve / COVID-19 list last week.

Washington received more bad news on Monday when four more players were added to the roster, including the team’s best player, defensive tackle Jonathan Allen.

It’s unclear if Allen will miss Washington’s Week 15 game in Philadelphia.

David Mayo and practice squad players Temarrick Hemingway and William Bradley-King have also been added to the roster. Bradley-King was active on Sunday, receiving his first NFL action due to lack of depth at the defensive end.

Now Washington currently has nine players on the COVID roster.

It couldn’t come at a worse time for Washington. At 6-7, the WFT still holds last place in the NFC playoffs. Several teams also have 6-7 records, but Washington currently holds the tiebreaker.

Washington has now been placed on “enhanced” protocols, which means all players and staff are required to undergo daily testing, wear masks in indoor facilities, and meet virtually regardless of their immunization status.

It’s unclear when Sweat and the others who were placed on the COVID list last week will be activated.
