With over 20 players from the Washington Football Team on the NFL’s reserve/Covid-list, multiple sources are reporting that the league is expected to move the Eagles game to Tuesday night.

As the number of WFT players assumed to be unavailable for Sunday grew larger as the week went on, this move was an inevitability, and should allow a handful of vaccinated players to clear protocol before a Tuesday kickoff.
The league is also expected to move the Browns-Raiders matchup to Monday, along with the Rams-Seahawks matchup likely being moved to Tuesday.

The NFL isn’t the only sports league experiencing renewed troubles with Covid, and while I would be surprised if these are the final set of schedule adjustments, let’s hope they can get this problem under control before the playoffs start next month.
