There is actually news about the WFT that has nothing to do with a quarterback.
And it’s good news.
Guard Brandon Scherff will be back on the practice field in Ashburn today after the three-time Pro Bowler sprained his MCL in Week 2’s loss to the Cardinals and has been on the temporary injured reserve list since.
By letting Scherff put on a helmet again, Washington is beginning a 21-day window where they can activate him or decide to leave him on IR for good. Considering that Scherff’s injury in Arizona was disappointing but, fortunately, not nearly as serious as it looked, his odds of playing again soon feel much better than him not.
Should Scherff return to the right side, Ron Rivera will have another guard decision on his hands.
