Shark Bites

The Steelers on Saturday placed WR James Washington on the COVID list. Washington wasn't headed for a big role, with Diontae Johnson back on the active roster. His deactivation, though, locks in Ray-Ray McCloud as a top-3 WR for the upside matchup with Baltimore. Pittsburgh also activated lead CB Joe Haden and C Kendrick Green from the COVID list, making them available for the Ravens game.

Cowboys WR James Washington had a walking boot on his left foot at team OTAs Wednesday, according to multiple reports. The team refused to reveal Washington's specific injury, but Pro Football Talk says multiple outlets point to tendinitis. Washington called it "nothing serious, more precautionary" afterward, according to SI.com. The wideout added that he expects to be back soon. With Michael Gallup coming of an ACL tear, we'll be interested to track Washington's status leading up to training camp. There figure to be some early-season targets available in Dallas.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that former Steelers WR James Washington is signing a 1-year deal with the Cowboys. Washington averaged just 28.5 receptions across 4 seasons in Pittsburgh. That he apparently couldn't find more on the open market means we shouldn't count on a 2022 breakout. But he lands in an intriguing spot. Dallas has already shed Amari Cooper (trade) and Cedrick Wilson (free agency) this offseason. The Cowboys re-signed Michael Gallup, but we'll see whether his Jan. 2 ACL tear allows him to start the season on time. Washington has been primarily undrafted in early best-ball drafts. As long as he doesn't leap up in ADP, he's an interesting late-round consideration.

Steelers WR James Washington (groin) is not listed on the final injury report and will play vs. the Seahawks on Sunday night. We’re expecting Washington step in as Pittsburgh’s #3 WR with JuJu Smith-Schuster out -- although Washington still isn’t much of a fantasy option.

Steelers WR James Washington (groin) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. It was his 1st work since hurting that groin in last Thursday's practice. We'll see if he's ready for Sunday night's game vs. the Seahawks. A healthy Washington is the favorite to replace JuJu Smith-Schuster in 3-WR sets.

Steelers WR James Washington has requested a trade, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Washington is buried behind Diontae Johnson, Chase Claypool and JuJu Smith-Schuster on Pittsburgh's depth chart, playing just 44% of the team's offensive snaps last year. Washington was the 60th overall pick of the 2018 draft, is still just 25 and has averaged 14.9 yards per catch through 3 NFL seasons. Getting out of Pittsburgh would give him a better shot at 2021 fantasy value. We'll see where this goes.
