Some good injury news for the Commanders Wednesday

·1 min read

The Washington Commanders have dealt with some difficult injury news over the season’s first two weeks. Rookie defensive tackle Phidarian Mathis was lost for the season with a knee injury, and longtime center Chase Roullier was placed on injured reserve and is feared to be lost for the season.

In addition, defensive tackle and team captain Jonathan Allen injured his groin in Week 1 but played in Week 2. The Commanders lost another defensive tackle Sunday when Daniel Wise left with an ankle injury.

As the Commanders begin preparations for an NFC East showdown with the Eagles in Week 3 on Wednesday, Washington received some good news on the injury front.

Allen, safety Kam Curl and guard/center Wes Schweitzer were all full participants. Curl missed the first two games after undergoing surgery on his thumb. but was cleared earlier this week. Schweitzer injured his hamstring in Week 1 and missed Sunday’s loss to the Lions. He will be Washington’s starting center if he’s healthy.

At 1-1, Washington hosts 2-0 Philadelphia on Sunday.
