  • Commanders' Wes Schweitzer: Returning from IR

    Washington activated Schweitzer (concussion) from its injured reserve list Saturday ahead of Sunday's game at the Giants.

    After missing the Commanders' last nine games recovering from a concussion, it appears Schweitzer is finally on track to suit up again in Week 13 at the Giants. With Trai Turner (ankle) listed as out for Sunday, it would make decent sense for Schweitzer to start at right guard.

  • Commanders' Wes Schweitzer: Return window slated to open

    Schweitzer (concussion) was given a designation to return to practice Wednesday, opening the window for the center to return from injured reserve.

    Schweitzer has been sidelined since Week 4 due to a concussion, but the Commanders now have 21 days to add the 29-year-old back onto the roster. It's possible that Schweitzer could suit up and replace starter Tyler Larsen in Sunday's matchup against the Giants, given that he cleared the concussion protocol back on Nov. 21.

  • Commanders' Wes Schweitzer: Finally clears concussion protocol

    Schweitzer was cleared from concussion protocol Monday, Zach Selby of the Commanders' official site reports.

    Team trainers will work to further evaluate Schweitzer in the coming days, but it appears he's nearing a return to action ahead of Sunday's game versus Atlanta. Once he's back, he could supplant Tyler Larsen as the Commanders' starting center.

  • Commanders' Wes Schweitzer: Set for extended absence

    Schweitzer (concussion) was placed on the reserve/injured list Saturday.

    Schweitzer suffered a concussion in Week 3 and had already been ruled out for Sunday's matchup against the Cowboys. However, he'll now be out for at least the next four games. Nick Martin will likely take over at center, as Chase Roullier is also sidelined (knee).

  • Commanders' Wes Schweitzer: Out for Week 4

    Schweitzer (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's matchup against Dallas, Sam Fortier of The Washington Post reports.

    Schweitzer didn't practice Wednesday due to concussion protocols, but it's unclear when he suffered the injury or how long he may be sidelined. Chase Roullier (knee), the team's top center, remains on injured reserve, so in Schweitzer's absence, Nick Martin is expected draw the start in the middle of Washington's offensive line.

  • Commanders' Wes Schweitzer: In concussion protocol

    Schweitzer (concussion) will not practice Wednesday, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

    Schweitzer will need to fully clear the league's concussion protocol before returning to action for Washington. The Commanders are relying on Schweitzer to start at center with Chase Roullier (knee) on IR, so the team could have to turn to Nick Martin versus the Cowboys on Sunday.

  • Commanders' Wes Schweitzer: Full participant Wednesday

    Schweitzer (hamstring) was a full participant at practice Wednesday.

    Schweitzer left the season opener against Jacksonville due to a hamstring injury and was unable to practice all last week before ultimately being ruled out. Washington recently placed Chase Roullier (knee) on injured reserve, so Schweitzer will be a candidate to take over as the starting center if available for Week 3.

  • Commanders' Wes Schweitzer: Out Week 2

    Schweitzer (hamstring) is inactive Week 2 against Detroit.

    Schweitzer left the season opener against Jacksonville due to a hamstring injury and was unable to take the practice field during the week, setting the stage for his inactive status. Trai Turner (quad) is active despite several limited sessions this week, and he'll presumably operate as the starting right guard.

  • Commanders' Wes Schweitzer: Questionable for Week 2

    Schweitzer (hamstring) is questionable for Week 2 at Detroit.

    Schweitzer underwent an MRI scan Monday after leaving Washington's opener with a hamstring injury, but it appears he avoided anything too major. Whether he will suit up Sunday is still in the air though, and Trai Turner will likely be in line for the fill-in reps if Schweitzer can't play.

  • Commanders' Wes Schweitzer: Undergoing MRI

    Schweitzer (hamstring) is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Monday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

    Schweitzer was forced out of Sunday's 28-22 victory against the Jaguars due to a hamstring injury, and his availability for the team's Week 2 contest against the Lions is now in question. Should the 300-pounder miss any time, Trai Turner would be the expected beneficiary during Schweitzer's absence.

  • Commanders' Wes Schweitzer: Injures hamstring Sunday

    Schweitzer (hamstring) is questionable to return after suffering a hamstring injury against the Jaguars on Sunday, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

    With Schweitzer sidelined for the time being, veteran Trai Turner filled in at right guard for the Commanders on Sunday, per Keim.

  • Commanders' Wes Schweitzer: Not listed on injury report

    Schweitzer (hip) isn't listed on Wednesday's injury report, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

    Schweitzer dealt with a hip injury in mid-August, but he appears to have cleared the issue and should be good to go for the season opener against Jacksonville. Trai Turner (quad) was also a full participant during Wednesday's practice, so it's unclear who'll start at right guard for Washington on Sunday.

  • Commanders' Wes Schweitzer: Dealing with hip issue

    Schweitzer has been absent from practice with a hip injury, Nicki Jhabvala of the Washington Post reports.

    Schweitzer is currently unavailable at practice while he nurses a hip injury, making it unlikely he's available for Saturday's matchup with the Chiefs. The severity of his injury has not been disclosed, but more information on his status will likely be provided as the preseason nears its conclusion next week.

  • Commanders' Wes Schweitzer: Gets back on field

    Schweitzer (ankle) took part in Washington's recent offseason programs, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.

    Schweitzer missed the final six games of the 2021 season after suffering an ankle injury Week 12 against the Seahawks. However, he's back to full health heading into the 2022 campaign and spent time filling in at center during the Commanders' recent workouts while Chase Roullier (lower leg) wasn't available. Once Roullier is healthy enough to take the field, Schweitzer is expected to compete with Trai Turner for starting duties at right guard.
