Washington Makes Eight Roster Moves

The Washington Football Team announced eight roster moves on Tuesday ahead of their game, including activating three players from the COVID-19 list.

The full list includes:

  1. Activated DT Tim Settle
  2. Activated DB Troy Apke
  3. Activated TE Sammis Reyes
  4. Elevated FB Alex Armah
  5. Elevated LB De’Jon Harris
  6. Elevated QB Kyle Shurmur
  7. Elevated OT David Steinmetz
  8. Placed RB J.D. McKissic on injured reserve

This will end McKissic’s regular season as there are only three games remaining in the regular season. 

Reyes also remains in the concussion protocol and will not play in Tuesday’s game against the Eagles. 

Armah, 27, was taken in the sixth round by the Panthers in 2017. He signed a four-year, $2.55 million contract with Carolina but was unfortunately among their final roster cuts coming out of the preseason.

The Panthers later signed him to their practice squad before promoting him to the active roster.

Armah signed a one-year $1.1 million deal with the Saints in March of this year. He was waived coming out of the preseason and had a brief stint on the practice squad before rejoining the active roster. 

In 2021, Armah has appeared in nine games for the Saints and rushed five times for 21 yards and caught one pass for one yard and one touchdown.
