The Washington Football Team will be without one of their top pass rushers for at least the next three games.
Montez Sweat was placed on injured reserve with a jaw injury, the team announced Saturday. Washington will have 21 days to decide whether to activate Sweat or return him back to IR.
Sweat has been dealing with a fractured jaw which kept him out of practice all week. The defensive end had already been ruled out for Sunday’s home game versus the Buccaneers. Sweat is second on the team with four sacks this season.
In a corresponding move, Washington signed DE Bunmi Rotimi to the active roster from the practice squad.
- Buffalo Bills running back Zack Moss has cleared concussion protocol, the team announced. Listed as questionable versus the Jets, Moss practiced on a limited basis on Thursday and Friday, but clearing protocol is the final hurdle toward making an appearance on Sunday.
- Cleveland Browns linebacker Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah and cornerback M.J. Stewart Jr. have been activated from injured reserve.
- The Cleveland Browns elevated running back Brian Hill from the practice squad to the active roster. Wideout JoJo Natson, fullback Johnny Stanton and cornerback Herb Miller were elevated to the active roster as COVID-19 replacements.
- The Cleveland Browns waived defensive tackle Andrew Billings.
