Terron Armstead and Erik McCoy remain out as expected for the Saints. While not a surprise, still a big loss to continue to fight through. Additionally, the Saints also have several starters that remain on IR, PUP, or suspension that add to the list above.
The most widely anticipated roster move the Saints made ahead of this game was signing WR Kenny Stills to the 53-man roster, meaning we will be active for today’s matchup agains the 28th ranked overall and passing defense.
Added to IR this week was running back Tony Jones Jr, who won the RB2 from Latavius Murray who is now in Baltimore. The Saints signed Devine Ozigbo from the Jacksonville Jaguars practice squad to help fill that void. Expect both he and Dwayne Washington to rotate with Alvin Kamara who just wrapped up his first career game without a reception.
Washington Inactives:— Washington Football PR (@Wash_PR) October 10, 2021
2 - WR Brown
11 - WR Sims
36 - CB Johnson
58 - DE Toney
75 - G Scherff
88 - TE Sternberger
Biggest moves here for the Washington Football Team come from the combined designations of WRs Dyami Brown and Cam Sims along with TE Jace Sternberger, which compounds the loss of TE Logan Thomas who was sent to IR earlier this week. Additionally, the Team will be without their starting left guard Brandon Scherff. The right side of the WFT line has struggled in pass protection while Saints DE Cam Jordan has consistently gotten pressure and hits on the QB. Here’s a chance for him to also total his first sack of the season against rookie RT Samuel Cosmi and a weakened right side of the O-line.
