McLaurin caught two of three targets for 25 yards in Thursday's 22-12 preseason loss to New England.
McLaurin had a 22-yard gain on the second play of the game and ultimately accounted for three of Ryan Fitzpatrick's eight targets. The star wideout will see plenty of looks in any scenario, but he could really be busy early in the season if Curtis Samuel's absence extends past August. Washington's big offseason acquisition has been on the PUP list since the start of training camp, bothered by the same groin injury that kept him out of offseason practices in early-to-mid June. Next up for McLaurin are exhibitions against Cincinnati (Aug. 20) and Baltimore (Aug. 28), followed by the season opener versus the Chargers on Sept. 12.
