The Washington Football Team activated wide receiver Curtis Samuel from the reserve/COVID-19 list on Monday. He was then placed on the active/physically unable to perform list.
When Samuel was spotted at practice on Sunday, it was clear he was close to being activated from the COVID-19 list. However, after practice, head coach Ron Rivera noted that there was still “no timetable” for Samuel’s return from a groin injury.
Samuel originally injured his groin back on June 1 in OTAs and missed the mandatory minicamp. He has yet to practice in training camp with his new team.
Rivera stressed on Sunday he wasn’t concerned with Samuel missing time due to his familiarity with offensive coordinator Scott Turner’s offense. Washington also has more depth at wide receiver this season, so rushing Samuel back is not something the team plans on doing.
Samuel had a career year in 2020 when he caught 77 passes for 851 yards and three touchdowns while also rushing for 200 yards and two scores for the Carolina Panthers.
