Commanders HC Ron Rivera told reporters Friday that DE Chase Young will "probably miss a little bit of time" at the beginning of the regular season, according to the Washington Times. Rivera reportedly talked about the PUP list initially before backtracking on that. It's clear that Young will at least miss Week 1, and we'd bet that the PUP remains a possibility. That would sideline the DE for at least the 1st 4 games. Young is still working back from a November ACL tear that included patellar damage.

Commanders DE Chase Young remains on the PUP list, and HC Ron Rivera doesn't make it sound like he expects the player back soon. “He’s been working hard,” Rivera said Tuesday, according to Ben Standig of The Athletic. “His rehab’s been going well from what we’ve seen and what we understand. But you never really know until you get to get your hands back on him. But Chase Young is probably the one that’s going to take the most time. It was serious, obviously, and any time you’re talking about an ACL, it’s just down the line. We’ll have to wait and see on that one.” In addition to tearing his right ACL, Young also damaged the patella in that knee. Young is expected to take longer to return than teammate TE Logan Thomas, who suffered his ACL tear in December. "Different type of injury," Rivera said, in comparing the 2. Young will make for a high-risk IDP selection at least until he's back on the field. At this point, he's far from a lock to be ready for the regular-season opener. We have moved him further down our 2022 IDP rankings.

Commanders DE Chase Young opened training camp on the physically unable to perform list. Young is still working back from the ACL tear that ended his 2021 season. He told reporters Tuesday, however, that "everything is going as planned," according to the team website. We'd bet on Young being ready for the regular season.

Washington DE Montez Sweat is inactive for today's game against the Eagles. He has been away from the team this week following the shooting death of his brother.

Washington DE Montez Sweat is questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles. He has been away from the team this week after his brother was shot and killed in Virginia. We'll check his status Sunday. Washington will be without CB William Jackson III for the 2nd straight game because of a calf injury.

Washington LB Jamin Davis is inactive for tonight's game against the Cowboys. According to Nicki Jhabvala of the Washington Post, Davis "came to team doctors pre-game with symptoms that could be in line with the coronavirus. There wasn't enough time to process a test before the deadline for submitting inactives, so he was deactivated out of an abundance of caution." With Cole Holcomb already on the COVID list, Washington is now down to David Mayo, Jordan Kunaszyk, Milo Eifler and De'Jon Harris at LB. If you're desperate for a fill-in, Mayo is the most experienced of the group.

Washington placed S Landon Collins on IR Friday for his foot injury. With just 3 games left in the regular season, that means Collins is droppable in all redraft formats.

Washington on Wednesday placed LB Cole Holcomb on the COVID list. We'll see whether he can make it back for Sunday night's game against the Cowboys.

Washington on Monday activated DE Montez Sweat from IR. Sweat would have been able to return from his jaw fracture for last week’s game but landed on the COVID list. He’s now clear to play Tuesday against the Eagles. Washington also activated DT Matt Ioannidis from the COVID list Monday, making him eligible to face Philly. Ioannidis’ playing time has increased in recent games

Washington has activated DE Montez Sweat and DT Jonathan Allen — among others — from the COVID list. That likely clears them to face the Eagles on Tuesday. Sweat does still need to be activated from IR, where he spent the past 5 weeks with his jaw fracture

Washington on Thursday placed S Kamren Curl on the COVID list, leaving him likely to miss Sunday's game at Philadelphia. He's the 2nd member of the starting secondary to hit the COVID list this week, following CB Kendall Fuller. We'll see whether anyone else in the group goes with them.

Washington CB Kendall Fuller landed on the COVID list Tuesday. It's not yet clear whether he tested positive, but multiple reports referred to myriad positive tests. Assume that you won't have Fuller available as a Week 15 IDP option.

Washington has placed DT Jonathan Allen on the COVID list. Allen has actually seen fellow DT Matt Ioannidis pass him in snaps the past 2 weeks. A narrow Week 13 edge gave way to Ioannidis playing 66 snaps to Allen's 46 in Sunday's loss to Dallas. Allen still delivered 1 of his most productive stat lines of the season and would be a significant loss if he can't make it back for Sunday's game against the Eagles. Washington also has 3 DEs already on the COVID list. The return of Montez Sweat could particularly soften the blow of missing Allen. We'll see where the D-line sits heading into the weekend.

Washington S Landon Collins (foot) is active for today's game against the Cowboys.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Washington expects S Landon Collins (foot) to play against the Cowboys today, barring a setback in pregame. Collins missed Week 13 but should be ready for IDP lineups this week.

Washington S Landon Collins (foot) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. He missed last week's game with the injury but made it back for limited practices the past 2 days. We'll see about his status Sunday.

Washington DE Montez Sweat has tested positive for COVID and will miss at least the next 10 days, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. That mandated timeline comes because Sweat is not vaccinated. He'll miss at least Sunday's game against Dallas. We'll see about his availability for a Week 15 clash with Philadelphia. Sweat had been slated to return after missing the past 4 games with a jaw fracture.

Washington HC Ron Rivera said Monday that he expects DE Montez Sweat (broken jaw) and S Landon Collins (foot) to be cleared to return to practice this week. Sweat has missed the past 4 games with his injury. Collins missed Sunday's win over the Raiders with an injury he suffered late in the previous week's win over Seattle. We'll keep an eye on the statuses of both players through the week, but it seems they'll be back in play for IDP consideration for Sunday's upside matchup with Dallas.
