McKissic (concussion) and Washington will no longer play the Eagles on Sunday, after the NFL officially rescheduled the matchup between the two teams for Tuesday at 7 p.m. ET.

Due to ongoing COVID-19-related issues within Washington's organization, the NFL is hopeful that by delaying the game two days, the Football Team will restore enough players from the reserve/COVID-19 list to alleviate depth concerns on the roster. Though McKissic isn't one of the several Washington players who has tested positive for the virus, he could benefit from the two-day delay, given that he has yet to clear the five-step concussion protocol. Even so, considering McKissic hadn't resumed practicing as of Friday, the pass-catching specialist is most likely trending toward missing his third consecutive contest, which would pave the way for Antonio Gibson to handle a three-down workhorse role out of the backfield.
