LANDOVER — Logan Thomas is good to go.
Nine months since he tore his ACL, the tight end was among the Washington Commanders actives ahead of Sunday’s season opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Washington previously listed Thomas as questionable entering the weekend, but he was ultimately cleared to play.
Thomas’ return figures to be a boost for the Commanders as the 31-year-old was one of the team’s main targets when healthy. At 6-foot-5, he provides notable size in the red zone. Thomas is coming off an injury-riddled campaign in which he only played six games, but in 2020 he finished with a career-high 72 catches for 670 yards and six touchdowns.
It’s unclear if Thomas will be on a pitch count against the Jaguars. Thomas returned to practice in late August, and has gradually increased his workload since then.
With Thomas in, here’s who is inactive for the Commanders:

- quarterback Sam Howell
- cornerback Tariq Castro-Fields
- guard Chris Paul
- tight end Cole Turner (hamstring)
