Washington Football Team places injured DE Montez Sweat on COVID list

It looks like the Washington Football Team will have to wait even longer to get Montez Sweat back on the field, as the defensive end has entered the NFL's COVID protocol after previously missing time due to an injured jaw.

While league rules stipulate Sweat's vaccination status should not be disclosed publicly, multiple reports have stated he remains unvaccinated following an offseason in which he was vocally against it.

Sweat ranks second on the team with four sacks this season and was expected to return to practice this week. Now, WFT won't have his help in the coming week with a big matchup against the Dallas Cowboys.

Sweat could potentially be available for the following game against the Philadelphia Eagles, although that remains to be seen.

Washington has won four straight games and is in a potential playoff spot.
