The Washington Football Team has activated guard Brandon Scherff and defensive tackle Daron Payne from the reserve/COVID-19 list, the team announced on Thursday.

Scherff was abruptly removed from Saturday's practice in Richmond and placed on the list shortly after. On Sunday, which was players' off day, Payne joined him on the reserve list.

With both Scherff and Payne back on the active roster, Washington has just two players remaining on the reserve/COVID-19 list: David Sharpe and Curtis Samuel. Washington had as many as seven players on the reserve/COVID-19 list earlier this week.

Washington entered training camp with one of the lowest vaccination rates of any NFL club, but that number has risen significantly since players reported. As of Tuesday, reportedly over 80 percent of Washington's roster had received at least one vaccine shot.
