Holcomb Moved To Covid-19 List; Lucas Comes Off Of It

By Mark Solway | December 23rd, 2021
This 2021 holiday season, is the season that just keeps on giving to the Washington Football Team. On Wednesday, Washington placed it’s most dependable defender on the Covid-19 list – Cole Holcomb.
Holcomb is the leader of the WFT defense. He calls the signals. He has played in all but thirteen defensive snaps for Washington this year. And now, he is in danger of missing the Cowboys game this week, which would be a tremendous blow to the WFT’s defense.
Holcomb has two interceptions this season, including one for a pick six against the Dallas Cowboys just two weeks ago. He leads the team with 120 tackles, and has a sack and two forced fumbles as well.
His leadership and presence would be sorely missed.

Other Roster Moves

The WFT made a few other roster moves on Wednesday.

Offensive tackle Cornelius Lucas and defensive lineman William Bradley-King were both activated from the COVID-19 reserve list

Defensive end Hercules Mata’afa was waived from the practice squad.

Washington still currently has 12 players on the COVID list – including quarterbacks Taylor Heinicke and Kyle Allen.

Garrett Gilbert signed with the team last week as an emergency qurterback. He played against the Eagles with just a few days of practice, and is still a possibility for the Dallas game.

Washington dropped to 6-8 on Tuesday night as a result of the 27-17 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. They can ill afford to lose again if they want to make the playoffs.
