Washington is reportedly signing DL Daniel Wise from their practice squad. He will join Bunmi Rotimi on the active roster after Washington lost their two star DEs over the course of the last two games. Montez Sweat suffered a broken jaw in Washington’s Week 8 loss to the Denver Broncos. On Sunday the team lost Chase Young after he tore his ACL during the win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and officially placed him on IR. Those are big losses to a defense that has struggled for most of the year.
We have made multiple roster moves:
-Placed DE Chase Young the Reserve/Injured List
-Signed DL Daniel Wise from the practice squad
-Signed TE Temarrick Hemingway and DT Gabe Wright to the practice squad
-Activated OL Saahdiq Charles off the Reserve/COVID-19 List— Washington Football Team (@WashingtonNFL) November 16, 2021
Washington’s other DEs on the roster are James Smith-Williams and Casey Toohill who are projected as the team’s new starters.
