Football Team's Cornelius Lucas: Lands on COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Washington placed Lucas on the reserve/COVID-19 list on Tuesday, Sam Fortier of The Washington Post reports.

The 30-year-old is expected to contend for a starting role at offensive tackle in 2021, but his placement on the COVID-19 list will at least provide a short-term setback for Lucas. He'll hope to clear protocols in advance Washington's first preseason game Aug. 12 versus the Patriots.

Football Team's Cornelius Lucas: Looking good for Monday night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lucas (ankle) was a full participant during Thursday's practice session, Kyle Stackpole of Washington's official site reports.

Lucas was ruled out for Washington's Thanksgiving matchup against the Cowboys, but he is afforded extra recuperation time with the team going 11 days between contests. He's started each of his past three appearances at tackle, but it will be far from an easy assignment Week 13, facing a Steelers defense that leads the NFL with 3.7 sacks per game.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lucas was waived by the Saints on Saturday, Mike Triplett of ESPN.com reports.

Lucas signed with the Saints on Thursday, so he'll end his stint in the Big Easy without seeing game action. The 27-year-old's departure was likely in part due to starters Max Unger (concussion) and Terron Armstead (pectoral/knee) being healthy enough to drop their injury designations.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
