Promoted to active roster

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-16

Washington was elevated to the Broncos' active roster Saturday.

Washington's addition to the active roster means the Broncos are rolling with four options in the backfield. He is not likely to see much work, if any, at running back, but the 29-year-old could be used on special teams.

Snags practice squad spot

Washington was added to the Broncos' practice squad Wednesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Washington failed to make it through final roster cuts, but he will remain in Denver nonetheless. He spent his previous five seasons in New Orleans, so his releationship with head coach Sean Payton was likely beneficial in the team's decision to keep him around. The veteran running back will now look to stay ready for an opportunity to get called up to the 53-man roster.

Released by Denver

The Broncos released Washington on Tuesday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Washington signed with the Broncos in mid-August but was unable to earn a spot on the team's 53-man roster. He appeared in 66 games with the Saints over the past five seasons, but he'll now attempt to find another opportunity ahead of the 2023 campaign.

Finds new home

Washington signed with the Broncos on Wednesday, Ben Swanson of the team's official site reports.

Washington closed out the 2022 campaign on the non-football illness list, but he's now healthy and ready to earn a role on Denver's roster in 2023. The 29-year-old has spent the last five seasons in New Orleans, mostly handling a role on special teams. He'll now be reunited with Sean Payton, his former coach for four of his years with the Saints.

Moves to NFI list

Washington (illness) was placed on the reserve/non-football illness list Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

Washington hasn't played since Week 13 while dealing with migraine issues. The move will end his season early and ensure he is out Sunday against the Panthers. He'll look to return next season, while the move also opens a roster spot for the Saints.

Remains out Sunday

Washington (illness) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Katherine Terrell of reports.

Washington has been unable to practice over the last three weeks due to a migraine, Terrin Waack of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. It's unclear whether the running back will be able to suit up for the Saints' regular-season finale in Week 18.

Absent from Thursday's session

RotoWire Logo Published: 2022-12-29

Washington (illness) wasn't spotted at Thursday's practice, Katherine Terrell of reports.

Washington was unavailable for both of New Orleans' previous two games due to an illness, but Saints coach Dennis Allen recently explained that the 28-year-old has been dealing with a cluster of migraine headaches, per Mike Triplett of NewOrleans.Football. With Washington potentially on his way to missing a third consecutive contest Sunday against the Eagles and Alvin Kamara (quadriceps/personal) carrying a questionable tag, David Johnson, Eno Benjamin and Taysom Hill could serve as the team's top ball carriers come New Year's Day.
