Returns healthy for offseason program

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-06-27

Forrest was healthy for spring practices after suffering a season-ending shoulder fracture in October, Zach Selby of the Commanders' official site reports.

Forrest became a starter during the 2022 season and then played 99.1 percent of defensive snaps through Week 5 in 2023. Fellow safety Percy Butler played nearly every snap over the next 10 games following Forrest's injury, recording 57 tackles and six passes defended in that stretch. Forrest seems like the favorite to start in the final season of his rookie contract, but he may spend more time in deep coverage after Washington signed 220-pound Jeremy Chinn to replace Kam Curl at the other safety spot. Forrest could perhaps have more fantasy value if he ends up starting next to Butler while Chinn guards the slot and/or plays as a pseudo-linebacker.

Continues to make progress

Forrest (shoulder) is expected to be ready for offseason workouts, Sam Fortier of The Washington Post reports.

Forrest suffered a fractured shoulder in October, which brought an end to his 2023 campaign early. The Cincinnati product spent about eight weeks with his arm in a sling before beginning rehab at the Commanders' facility and never underwent surgery to repair it.

IR-bound with shoulder injury

Washington placed Forrest (shoulder) on its injured reserve list Tuesday, Zach Selby of the Commanders' official site reports.

Forrest sustained a fractured shoulder in Week 5 versus Chicago, and he'll now be forced to sit out for at least Washington's next four games as he recovers. In his absence, 2022 fourth-rounder Percy Butler is expected to start at safety next to Kamren Curl.

Suffers shoulder fracture

Forrest suffered a fractured shoulder in Washington's Week 5 loss to the Bears last Thursday night and will be placed on injured reserve, Zach Selby of the Commanders' official site reports.

Forrest has started all five games to this point, playing 99 percent of the defensive snaps and registering 29 tackles. It's unclear how long he'll be sidelined. Percy Butler is next up at safety for Washington, but the team figures to make a move at the position with Jeremy Reaves also headed to injured reserve.

Set to start again

Forrest is listed as a starter on Washington's depth chart.

Forrest started 11 of his 17 games last season en route to 84 tackles and four interceptions, including 48 tackles and three picks over the last eight games after becoming an every-down player. He'll likely keep the every-down role, though he does tend to get more of the deep snaps while fellow Washington safety Kamren Curl spends more time up in the box.

Breaks out in 2022

Forrest played in 17 games (11 starts) during the 2022 season and compiled 84 tackles (54 solo), four interceptions and a fumble recovery.

Forrest had the best season of his young career as he took over the starting free safety job in the latter half of the season after Bobby McCain started playing cornerback. Forrest, a 2021 fifth-round pick, led the Commanders in interceptions and finished second in tackles while lining up for 81 percent of the defensive snaps. With two years remaining on his rookie contract, Forrest should continue to start for the Commanders next season, a context that puts him on the fantasy radar in IDP formats.
