Sunday’s Eagles Game Has Been Moved to Tuesday, Reports Say
Sunday's scheduled game between the Washington Football Team and the Philadelphia Eagles has been pushed back to Tuesday, multiple outlets are now reporting.
A COVID-19 outbreak has sidelined 21 players on the Washington Football team. This includes both their primary and backup quarterbacks.
It looks like the game will now be played Tuesday night at 7 pm inside Philly's Lincoln Financial Field, reports say.
The increase in COVID-19 cases is not isolated to just the Washington team.
In fact, a bunch of players across multiple teams in the league are unavailable for COVID-related issues this week.
As of 3 pm on Friday, ESPN is reporting that the Las Vegas Raiders and Cleveland Browns game has also been moved from Sunday to Monday (at 5 pm). It's estimated that 24 players on the Browns have been placed on the COVID-19 reserve list.
But it's possible that even more games on the NFL schedule could be affected by scheduling changes as a result.
As a result, ESPN says that the league is exploring multiple options across all of this week's originally scheduled game times.
This is a developing story. We'll update this post when we have more information.
