Earlier this week, Washington head coach Ron Rivera voiced his concerns on the team’s low COVID-19 vaccination rate and saw four players added to the reserve/COVID-19 list.
On Saturday’s final practice in Richmond before heading back to Ashburn, Washington added two more to the list: right guard Brandon Scherff and offensive tackle David Sharpe.
Scherff and Sharpe join wide receiver Curtis Samuel, defensive tackle Matt Ioannidis, offensive tackle Cornelius Lucas and defensive back Chris Miller on the list.
Rivera spoke after practice and said some players were set up to get the vaccine on Sunday.
Washington already has more player’s on the reserve/COVID-19 list this week than it had last season before vaccinations were available.
It’s easy to understand Rivera’s frustration because it could put Washington at a disadvantage on game days if this happens during the season.
