Washington’s season is over and he is out of playoff contention. But like it or not, the team is still in the news.
The most recent fiasco for the Washington soccer team came in its Week 17 competition against the Eagles. At the end of the game, Philadelphia quarterback Jalen Hurts was walking back to the locker room when a horde of fans fell over the railing and to the ground several feet below, nearly hitting Hurts.
On Tuesday, it came to light that Hurts was genuinely concerned about what had happened and wanted to know what steps the Washington Football Team and the NFL were taking to remedy the situation.

Turns out, not much seems to be happening on the part of the Washington soccer team. In a Monday report from ESPN, several fans who were part of the group that fell said that the team and stadium employees showed them little respect.
“They didn’t ask if anyone was hurt, and they certainly didn’t ask if anyone needed medical attention,” Andrew Collins, 26, of Brooklawn, NJ, told ESPN. “The only thing the staff told us was to take the F off the field.”
The extent of injuries sustained ranges from severe bruises to bruises and pulled muscles, according to ESPN. Through ESPN, the Washington soccer team released a statement that read:
“To our knowledge, everyone involved was offered an on-site medical evaluation and left the stadium of their own accord. We are very pleased that no one appears to have been seriously injured. The safety of our fans and guests is of the utmost importance. and we are investigating what happened. “
Several fans present refuted that statement and said it was “completely incorrect.”
The NFL has also gotten involved and is investigating what happened to make sure it doesn’t happen again.
