  • Commanders' Montez Sweat: Fifth-year option exercised

    The Commanders exercised Sweat's fifth-year team option for 2023 on Wednesday.

    As a result, the 2019 first-round pick will be due $10.89 million in the final year of his rookie deal. During the upcoming season -- his fourth in the NFL -- Sweat is set to reprise a starting role at defensive end opposite Chase Young (knee), who is still recovering from a torn ACL. The 25-year-old is coming off a 2021 campaign in which he recorded 24 tackles, five sacks and three forced fumbles in 10 games.

  • Football Team's Montez Sweat: Inactive in Week 17

    Sweat (personal) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Giants.

    This comes as no surprise after a week in which Sweat was away from the team due to the death of his brother. He'll thus sit out for the sixth time in eight games, with the previous five absences chalked up to a broken jaw and a bout with COVID-19. Sweat's next potential game action will arrive next Sunday against the Giants.

  • Football Team's Montez Sweat: Not on track to play

    Sweat (personal), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles, isn't expected to play, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Sweat didn't practice all week while he was away from the team to be with his family following the tragic death of his brother. Washington gave him the questionable tag heading into the weekend in case Sweat decided to rejoin the team, but he instead looks like he'll be out for the sixth time in eight games. Sweat previously missed time due to a fractured jaw and a stint on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

    Sweat hasn't practiced this week due to the death of his brother. It's not yet clear whether the 25-year-old will rejoin the team ahead of Sunday's game against the Eagles, but Casey Toohill and Shaka Toney would likely see increased playing time if Sweat is out.
