  • Saints' Dwayne Washington: Activated from COVID-19 list

    Washington (undisclosed) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

    Washington was forced to miss Monday's loss to the Dolphins while in the health and safety protocols, though he should be poised to return for Sunday's matchup against Carolina. He has played nearly exclusively on special teams this season and has picked up only four carries and two receptions across 12 games as a result.

  • Saints' Dwayne Washington: Not available Week 16

    Washington wasn't activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list prior to the Saints' deadline for Week 16 roster moves and won't be available for Monday's game against the Dolphins, Katherine Terrell of The Athletic reports.

    Though he's listed as a running back, Washington makes his biggest for the Saints as a core member of their special-teams units, so his absence won't mean much from a fantasy standpoint. He was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday and should have decent odds of getting cleared for the Saints' Week 17 game against the Panthers.

  • Saints' Dwayne Washington: Placed on reserve/COVID-19 list

    Washington was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, per the team's official site.

    Washington joins a growing list of Saints players on the COVID-19 list ahead of Monday's matchup against Miami. If there's any good news for New Orleans, it's that none of the four running backs listed ahead of Washington on the depth chart is currently slated to miss the contest. As such, the impact of his potential absence would primarily be felt on special teams.

  • Saints' Dwayne Washington: No offensive snaps despite injuries

    Washington did not log an offensive snap during Thursday's 31-6 loss to Buffalo.

    Considering New Orleans was down both Alvin Kamara (knee) and Mark Ingram (knee), it's clear that New Orleans doesn't view Washington as much more than a special-teams contributor.

  • Saints' Dwayne Washington: Two touches in Kamara's absence

    Washington rushed twice for eight yards during Sunday's 23-21 loss to the Titans.

    With Alvin Kamara (knee) sidelined, Mark Ingram commanded the vast majority of work out of the backfield while Washington was only a change-of-pace option who barely saw the field on offense. Even if Kamara remains sidelined in Week 11, Washington won't be worthy of fantasy consideration.

  • Saints' Dwayne Washington: No offensive snaps

    Washington did not log an offensive snap during Sunday's 27-25 loss to Atlanta.

    With Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram locked in atop the depth chart, Washington was only needed for reps on special teams, where he returned two kickoffs for a combined 39 yards.

  • Saints' Dwayne Washington: Logs full practice

    Washington (neck) practiced in full Thursday.

    Washington was limited in practice Wednesday but was able to give it a full go on Thursday. He hasn't seen the field since Week 5 against The Football Team, when he was injured on a helmet-to-helmet hit while on punt coverage. With the recent addition of Mark Ingram, it is likely Washington will primarily be relegated to special teams if he suits up Sunday against the Falcons.

  • Saints' Dwayne Washington: Out again

    Washington (neck) will remain sidelined for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

    Washington absence will mark his second straight due to a neck injury. He was unable to practice all week, so this news is relatively unsurprising. He is primarily used on special teams when healthy.

  • Saints' Dwayne Washington: Won't play Week 7

    Washington (neck) has been ruled out for Monday's contest against the Seahawks, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

    Washington didn't practice at all this week, so it's not a surprise to see him ruled out for Monday's contest. When healthy, he is primarily used on special teams, so his absence shouldn't affect the Saints' offensive rotations.

  • Saints' Dwayne Washington: Misses practice

    Washington (neck) has missed consecutive practices ahead of Monday's matchup with the Seahawks.

    Washington's status for Week 7 will become more clear once Saturday's practice report is revealed. When healthy, he is primarily used on special teams to go along with providing depth at running back.

  • Saints' Dwayne Washington: Logs two offensive snaps

    Washington logged two offensive snaps during Sunday's 33-22 win over the Football Team.

    Despite speculation that Washington could serve as the No. 2 running back in the absence of Tony Jones (ankle), the kick return specialist was limited to two offensive snaps, possibly due to getting shaken up on a helmet-to-helmet hit on punt coverage during the second quarter. In the end, Alvin Kamara hogged 88 percent of the offensive snaps while Devine Ozigbo (seven snaps) and fullback Alex Armah (16) filled in behind him. While it seems possible that Washington could get a few offensive touches while Jones remains on injured reserve for at least the next two weeks, it does not seem as if he'll be used as a direct replacement in the complementary role Jones enjoyed.

  • Saints' Dwayne Washington: Looks like Kamara's top backup

    Washington was working with the second-team offense during warmups ahead of Sunday's game in Washington and is expected to serve as the No. 2 back behind Alvin Kamara, John Hendrix of SI.com reports.

    Washington will bump up a spot on the depth chart after Kamara's previous top understudy, Tony Jones (ankle), was moved to injured reserve Wednesday. Since joining New Orleans in 2018, Washington has been deployed almost exclusively on special teams, logging only 79 offensive snaps across three-plus seasons. Even with Jones out of the mix, expect Washington to handle a light role on offense, most likely just subbing in when Kamara requires a breather.

  • Saints' Dwayne Washington: Two touches in Jones' absence

    Washington rushed once for five yards while securing his only target for six yards during Sunday's 27-21 overtime loss to the Giants.

    After seeing zero offensive snaps over the first three weeks of the season, Washington saw a couple of touches after Tony Jones was carted off with an ankle injury. If Jones needs to miss time, Washington's fantasy stock could rise depending on whether the Saints bring in any backfield reinforcements.

  • Saints' Dwayne Washington: Stuck on special teams

    Washington logged 14 snaps on special teams during Sunday's 38-3 win over Green Bay.

    Washington didn't see any action on offense as the No. 3 back behind Alvin Kamara and Tony Jones, nor did he get a chance to return a kickoff since Green Bay only kicked off once and it went for a touchback. The 27-year-old will look to get his first touch of the season when the Saints travel to Carolina in Week 2.

  • Saints' Dwayne Washington: Moves up to No. 3 RB

    Washington is the Saints' No. 3 running back after Latavius Murray was released Tuesday, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

    Washington was able to secure a spot on New Orleans' initial 53-man roster and has now moved up the depth chart since the team has parted ways with Murray. Washington had 16 carries for 75 yards in 27 games for the Saints over the past two seasons, and he's unlikely to have a significant offensive role in 2021 if Alvin Kamara and Tony Jones remain healthy.
