The Washington Commanders received some good news Saturday when guard/center Wes Schweitzer was officially activated from the reserve/injured list.
Schweitzer, who opened the season as Washington’s starting right guard, suffered a concussion in the Week 3 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles and has been sidelined since. Earlier this week, the team announced it had designated Schweitzer to return from IR.
Guard Trai Turner will miss Sunday’s game, but it’s expected that tackle Sam Cosmi will receive an opportunity to start in Turner’s place with Cornelius Lucas remaining at right tackle. Schweitzer should soon be back in the mix to start somewhere for the Commanders.
Washington also elevated veteran wide receiver/returner Alex Erickson to replace Dax Milne on the roster. Erickson will return punts in Milne’s absence. Milne is dealing with a foot injury.
Erickson certainly has at least one fond memory of success against the Giants.
Erickson was the punt returner in Week 12 vs. the Falcons but did not receive any return opportunities.
