The Washington Football Team put safety Deshazor Everett on injured reserve, ransacking the defense of a player who had set the optional. Everett endured a torn pectoral muscle in Sunday’s 23-15 win over the San Francisco 49ers.
It comes at an awkward time as Washington (6-7) has Seattle (9-4) on Sunday. Washington has permitted an alliance most noticeably awful seven pass plays for 50 yards or longer this season; Seahawks receiver D.K. Metcalf is second in the NFL with three such receptions.
Washington’s defense has keyed its four-game series of wins, and Everett’s actual play at free security has made a difference. He entered the firing line up in Week 6 after the first starter, Troy Apke, was sidelined. Everett was anything but a major playmaker, yet he recorded 31 tackles and separated four passes in his six beginnings.
Washington probably will begin Jeremy Reaves at free wellbeing with Apke backing him up. Reaves began three games last season yet opened 2020 on the training crew. He was advanced the week after solid wellbeing Landon Collins tore his Achilles ligament on Oct. 27. Kam Curl has been beginning at solid security since Collins endured his physical issue.
Everett was viewed as a pioneer, both on the guard and uncommon groups. “They feel his presence,” Washington mentor Ron Rivera said.
Washington additionally has Cole Luke notwithstanding Apke backing up the wellbeing spots. The greatest injury inquiries for Washington remain the status of quarterback Alex Smith (strained right calf) and running back Antonio Gibson (turf toe). Neither practiced for a second sequential day.
Rivera said he’s “very hopeful” that Gibson will return sooner or later this season. Yet, in the event that something goes wrong, they signed veteran running back Lamar Miller off Chicago’s practice squad on Wednesday. Rivera has said he’s happy with beginning Smith regardless of whether he doesn’t work it during the week.
