Defensive ends Casey Toohill and James Smith-Williams also were activated for Washington (6-7), which had its scheduled road game against the Philadelphia Eagles (6-7) on Sunday moved to Tuesday due to the team’s complications with COVID-19.

He has 247 tackles, 24.5 sacks and two fumble recoveries in 65 career games since being selected by Washington with the 17th overall pick of the 2017 NFL Draft.

Sweat, 25, initially was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list on Dec. 8 after missing four games with a fractured jaw.

He has collected 19 tackles, four sacks and two forced fumbles in eight games this season.

Sweat has 20 sacks, 114 tackles (23 for loss) and 45 quarterback hits in 40 career games (all starts) with Washington.
