  • Commanders' Montez Sweat: Productive 2022 season

    Sweat started all 17 games during the 2022 season and compiled 46 tackles (27 solo), including eight sacks.

    Sweat had another solid season, finishing second on the Commanders in sacks and third in tackles for loss (14). The 2019 first-round pick played 70 percent of the defensive snaps, the most among any of Washington's defensive ends. He's set to play out the last year of his rookie contract in 2023, when he'll look to maintain this level of production in order to put himself in a favorable bargaining position ahead of a potential dip into free agency.

  • Commanders' Montez Sweat: Upgrades to full participant

    Sweat (concussion) logged a full practice Thursday, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.

    Sweat was able to ramp up his activity level after logging a limited practice Wednesday. Whether he is still in concussion protocols or not is unclear, but it does appear he is trending in the right direction to play Sunday against the Giants.

  • Commanders' Montez Sweat: Returns to practice

    Sweat (concussion) logged a limited practice Wednesday, Sam Fortier of The Washington Post reports.

    Sweat is still clearing the hurdles of concussion protocols, but his ability to return to the practice field is evidence he is trending in the right direction. However, it doesn't guarantee he'll be able to gain clearance to play ahead of Sunday's game with the Giants.

  • Commanders' Montez Sweat: Remains in protocols

    Sweat is still in concussion protocols, but he's expected to return to practice Wednesday or Thursday, Matthew Paras of The Washington Times reports.

    Sweat suffered a concussion in Week 13's tie with the Giants, but he was unable to gain clearance during the team's Week 14 bye and remains in protocols. However, a return to practice later this week would leave open the possibility for him to suit up Sunday in a rematch with the Giants. With James Smith-Williams still in concussion protocols as well, and Chase Young's debut date still a moving target, the Commanders face the possibility of being thin on the edges if Sweat is unable to play.

  • Commanders' Montez Sweat: Leaves with injury

    Sweat is being evaluated for a concussion Sunday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

    Sweat left Sunday's game against the Giants early and did not appear to return before the game ended in a 20-20 tie. Whether Sweat suffered a concussion is still unknown. If he did, he'll have extra time to recover with the Commanders headed into a Week 14 bye before they play the Giants again in Week 15.

  • Commanders' Montez Sweat: Multi-sack performance in win

    Sweat registered three solo tackles, including two sacks, in the 23-10 win over the Texans on Sunday.

    Sweat swallowed up Davis Mills for a sack in both the second quarter and the third, producing his second two-sack performance of the year.

Overall, Sweat has recorded 31 tackles, including the six sacks, while deflecting two passes over 11 contests this season.

  • Commanders' Montez Sweat: Posts sack in Thursday's win

    Sweat recorded six tackles (three solo) and one sack during Thursday's 12-7 win over the Bears.

    Sweat now has three sacks over the team's last two contests after he failed to record one throughout the first four weeks. The speedy pass rusher continues to play around 70 percent of Washington's defensive snaps, and he'll likely operate in a similar role next Sunday versus Green Bay.

  • Commanders' Montez Sweat: Logs two sacks Sunday

    Sweat recorded six tackles (five solo) and two sacks during Sunday's 21-17 loss to the Titans.

    Sweat's two sacks Sunday was the first time the speedy defensive end got to a quarterback since Week 15 against Philadelphia a season ago. The 26-year-old has had a slow start to begin the 2022 campaign, but he'll attempt to keep momentum going in Thursday's contest in Chicago.
