ESPN is reporting that the WFT vaccinations rate has jumped to 84% of its players who have at least one shot after coach Ron Rivera urging.
Washington was just over 70% as of Saturday, when it had to place two more players on the reserve/COVID-19 list, including starting right guard Brandon Scherff.
After that practice, Rivera made sure the team knew: If that had happened the day before the season opener, and they were not vaccinated, they would miss five days. Because Washington plays its second game on a Thursday, that would cost the players two games.
