The Facts: Washington is off the reserve/COVID-19 list. The team announced the move Friday. Washington was placed on the list on Aug 2.
Diehards Line: The reserve/COVID-19 list is used for any player who either tests positive for COVID-19 or comes in close contact with someone who contracted the virus. Teams do not specify which group a player falls in when going on the list. Washington enters his third season in Pittsburgh coming off a breakout second year in which the Oklahoma State product compiled 44 catches for 735 yards and three touchdowns. A deep threat, Washington is set to compete with rookie Chase Claypool for boundary-receiver duties alongside JuJu Smith-Schuster and Diontae Johnson.
