  • Washington QB Taylor Heinicke said his elbow injury is more of an issue than his knee issue but was able to throw on Wednesday without any pain: “Definitely the elbow. There’s some bruising there, it’s tender, hurts a little bit. … I went out and practiced today and the elbow didn’t hurt when I was throwing, so it’s all around good news.” (Nicki Jhabvala)
  • Heinicke said he is focused on being available for Week 15 after fellow QB Kyle Allen tested positive for COVID-19: “It’s unfortunate that he tested positive. I’ve talked to him. He said he feels fine, so that’s good news. But for me, I can’t control what that test says. I try to be as careful as I can to be available for this team.” (Nicki Jhabvala)
  • Washington HC Ron Rivera confirmed WR Curtis Samuel suffered a hamstring injury after dealing with a groin injury throughout the season. (Nicki Jhabvala)
