WFT activates two more players off COVID list and has officially ruined my Eagles Sunday for no reason
Well, today sucks. Five hours ago, I was supposed to be leaving my house in Delco, hopping in an Eagles RV and getting down to the F2 lot to watch a very important division rival game agains the Washington Football Team at Lincoln Financial Field.
As everyone knows by now, the game today was no longer possible, and was postponed until Tuesday night at 7PM. Instead of me tailgating all day and chasing a Wild Card spot, I’ll now be drinking at my house alone and watching NFL RedZone in disgust. Thanks, Roger Goodell.
The Washington Football team could barely get an actual team together to travel to Philly to face the Eagles today, which is why the game was moved to Tuesday night. Yesterday, the WFT was able to activate four players, all on the defensive line off the COVID List and today, two more players have been activated ahead of Tuesday’s game.
On Saturday, Washington activated Jonathan Allen, Montez Sweat, Casey Toohill and James Smith-Williams from their COVID-19 list. Today, the Washington Football Team has activated WR Cam Sims and DE Daniel Wise off its Reserve/COVID List.
Okay great, that’s obviously good news. No one should want anyone to be stuck on these brutal health and safety protocol lists. I don’t care what team you play for and simply want COVID to disappear. But if you stop for a second and think about it. The WFT now has six players that were thought to be unable to play today activated before noon. All six players would have been able to play in today’s 1PM game.
On Friday, Washington had a total of 23 players on the COVID list. Today, they are now down to 16 players: QB Kyle Allen, S Troy Apke, DE Will Bradley-King, S Kam Curl, LB Milo Eifler, S Darrick Forrest, CB Kendall Fuller, QB Taylor Heinicke, TE Temarrick Hemingway, LB Khaleke Hudson, DT Matt Ioannidis, C Tyler Larsen, T Cornelius Lucas, LB David Mayo, TE Sammis Reyes, DT Tim Settle, RB Wendell Smallwood.
As for the Eagles, they only have two players on their COVID list in Quez Watkins and practice squad running back Jason Huntley. As of yesterday, everyone on the Eagles roster outside of those two players were full participants in practice and meetings.
I don’t want to even begin to imagine if any Eagles player lands themselves on the COVID list ahead of Tuesday’s game. Blood will be on your hands, Goodell.
