Isaiah Wright: Gets chance in CFL
Wright signed a contract with the Toronto Argonauts in the CFL on Wednesday, TSN.com reports.
Wright hasn't logged NFL action since his rookie season in 2020, when he went 27-197-0 across 14 appearances with Washington. The former Temple standout will now look to continue his pro career in the CFL.... See More ... See Less
Isaiah Wright: Unable to make 53-man roster
Washington waived Wright on Monday, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
Wright finished his rookie season with 27 receptions for 197 yards on 35 targets. However, Washington brought in Curtis Samuel (groin), Adam Humphries and rookie Dyami Brown this offseason, helping push Wright off the roster.... See More ... See Less
Football Team's Isaiah Wright: Contributes as rookie
Wright finished 2020 with 27 receptions for 197 yards on 35 targets, logging 347 snaps on offense and 83 on special teams.
The undrafted rookie out of Temple got most of his playing time in the first half of the season, manning the slot while Steven Sims dealt with a toe injury. Wright peaked with 59 yards in a Week 10 loss to Detroit, catching just five passes over the final seven weeks of the regular season. He did get a dozen snaps and one target in the playoff loss to Tampa Bay, while fellow rookie Antonio Gandy-Golden (a fourth-round pick) was a healthy scratch. Even so, Wright will need to battle for his roster spot in the offseason, with his status largely depending on Washington's approach to free agency and the draft.... See More ... See Less
Football Team's Isaiah Wright: Catches a pair of passes
Wright caught two passes for 15 yards on two targets in Sunday's 20-15 loss to Seattle.
Wright played 28 percent of offensive snaps, fourth among the team's wide receivers. Terry McLaurin and Cam Sims handled every-down roles, while Wright split the No. 3 role with Steven Sims (35 percent) and Robert Foster (12 percent). Each of Wright, Sims and Foster drew two targets, and they combined for four receptions and 35 yards. None of the bunch can be trusted for fantasy purposes as Washington heads into Week 16 against Carolina.... See More ... See Less
Football Team's Isaiah Wright: Catches only target
Wright caught his lone target for nine yards during Sunday's win over the 49ers.
The 23-year-old also threw an incomplete pass during the third quarter on an attempted trick play. Wright went off with six catches for 59 yards Week 10, but he has only three catches for 21 yards over the past four games.... See More ... See Less
Football Team's Isaiah Wright: Lone reception Monday
Wright recorded one reception for five yards across 29 offensive snaps in Monday's win over the Steelers.
Wright did see an uptick in offensive snaps compared to the past few weeks but didn't have much production to show for it. He now has 24 receptions for 173 yards through the first 10 games of his rookie campaign.... See More ... See Less
Football Team's Isaiah Wright: Minor offensive role Week 11
Wright caught his only target for seven yards during Sunday's win over the Bengals.
The 23-year-old set career highs with six catches for 59 yards Week 10, but he was minimally involved in the passing game versus Cincinnati. The return of Steven Sims from injured reserve likely limits Wright's outlook going forward to that of a depth receiver.... See More ... See Less
Football Team's Isaiah Wright: Avoids inactive list
Wright (illness) is active for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.
Wright had been listed as questionable after the illness prevented him from practicing Friday, but he apparently made enough progress over the last couple of days to gain clearance for the Week 11 contest. While serving as Washington's No. 4 receiver, Wright has been limited to playing a fewer than a third of the offensive snaps the past two weeks, but he's still managed to turn nine targets into nine receptions for 89 yards between those contests....

Football Team's Isaiah Wright: Looking good for Sunday
Wright (illness), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals, is expected to play, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
A late addition to Washington's injury report after falling ill Friday, Wright's ailment apparently isn't serious enough to keep him sidelined for the Week 11 matchup. Assuming he avoids the inactive list ahead of Sunday's 1 p.m. ET kickoff, Wright should work as Washington's No. 4 receiver behind Terry McLaurin, Cam Sims and Steven Sims.... See More ... See Less
Football Team's Isaiah Wright: Deemed questionable for Sunday
Wright (illness) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Bengals, Kyle Stackpole of Washington's official site reports.
Wright popped up on the injury report Friday with an illness that's not connected to COVID-19 at this time. The 23-year-old wide receiver is coming off the best game of his career, as he hauled in six passes for 59 yards against the Lions. His status could end up being a game-time decision. Steven Sims and Jeff Badet are due for more reps if Wright sits out.... See More ... See Less
Football Team's Isaiah Wright: Demoted behind Cam Sims
Wright caught each of his three targets for 30 yards in Sunday's 23-20 loss to the Giants, playing 30 percent of offensive snaps and losing a fumble on a punt return.
The receiving numbers weren't terrible, but Cam Sims (74 percent snap share) worked ahead of Wright on offense, while Steven Sims replaced him on punt returns after the first-quarter fumble. This all happened with Dontrelle Inman (hamstring) inactive, so Wright could be in danger of a demotion to the practice squad at some point. For the time being, expect Wright to work in a part-time role Week 10 at Detroit.... See More ... See Less
Football Team's Isaiah Wright: Puts in full practice
Wright (shoulder) practiced in full Thursday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.
After Wednesday's limited showing, Wright is on the cusp of his first appearance since Week 6 following Thursday's development. While Washington is anticipating the return of Steven Sims (toe) from IR, Dontrelle Inman (hamstring) made a sudden appearance on Thursday's injury report as a non-participant, so the breakdown of the receiving corps bears watching ahead of Sunday's game versus the Giants....

Football Team's Isaiah Wright: Limited in practice
Wright (shoulder) was listed as limited on Wednesday's practice report, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
Near the end of a Week 6 loss to the Giants, Wright appeared to get banged up and eventually was unable to practice the ensuing week. A shoulder injury was to blame, and he didn't play in Washington's subsequent contest before the team's Week 8 bye. His ability to get on the field Wednesday indicates he's making inroads on a return to action, but ultimately, Friday's injury report may clear up whether or not Wright is ready to play in Sunday's rematch with the Giants....
