Washington BREAKING: Taylor Heinicke to COVID List, Ex Cowboys QB Signed

Locked On Washington Football Team: COVID rocking WFT

With eight people on the Washington Football Team roster heading to the COVID-19 list Wednesday, it's safe to say that there is an outbreak on our hands. … and now on Friday morning, more negative movement as starting quarterback Taylor Heinicke has been added to the list.

Some of the 22 who people have been placed on the WFT COVID list:

  • 93 Jonathan Allen DT
  • 8 Kyle Allen QB
  • 56 William Bradley-King DE
  • 46 Milo Eifler OLB
  • 48 Darrick Forrest SS
  • 29 Kendall Fuller CB
  • 88 Temarrick Hemingway TE
  • 47 Khaleke Hudson MLB
  • 98 Matt Ioannidis DT
  • 78 Cornelius Lucas T
  • 51 David Mayo OLB
  • 80 Sammis Reyes TE
  • 97 Tim Settle DT
  • 11 Cam Sims WR
  • 96 James Smith-Williams DE
  • 90 Montez Sweat DE
  • 95 Casey Toohill DE

The COVID list is fluid as people can come on and off the list each day, making this week's game against the Philadelphia Eagles extremely difficult to game-plan for … and that is especially true if Garrett Gilbert is called upon to play QB, as the former Dallas Cowboys journeyman has just been signed by the WFT.

The new WFT QB room? It’s Washington Kyle Shurmur, Garrett Gilbert and another new signee, Jordan Ta'amu.

There is no telling who could be available and play and it can change each day leading up to the game.
