Washington defensive end Montez Sweat will not play in the WFT’s regular-season home finale against the Eagles. Sweat’s older brother, Anthony, was fatally shot last week and Sweat missed practice to be with his family.

Sweat, in his third season out of Mississippi State, has 22 tackles, five sacks and three forced fumbles in 10 games this season. Sweat was injured in a Week 8 loss at Denver when he fractured his jaw. He would miss the next four Washington games. Sweat would then test positive for COVID-19 and miss the Week 14 game against the Cowboys.

Sweat returned in the Week 15 game at Philadelphia, recording a sack and forcing a fumble.

Washington’s final game is on the road against the Giants in Week 18.
