  • Richardson (shoulder) isn't expected to practice until training camp, Kareem Copeland and Les Carpenter of The Washington Post report. Richardson had a plate inserted in his right shoulder in early November to address multiple fractures of the clavicle. An estimated recovery timeline of 6-to-8 months always made him a shaky bet to log any level of participation in spring practices, but he is in attendance as an observer. Richardson was limited to seven games and 262 receiving yards in the first season of a five-year, $40 million contract, battling shoulder injuries throughout training camp and into the regular season. He should still have a starting job once he gets healthy, as Washington's depth chart at wide receiver is one of the weakest in the NFL.

  • Richardson clarified that his season-ending injury in 2018 included multiple fractures to the clavicle in his right shoulder, which required the insertion of a plate during surgery in early November, Jake Kring-Schreifels of the Redskins' official site reports. Richardson initially picked up the injury in the early stages of training camp, and it grew worse as the campaign wore on, limiting him in practice, resulting in an absence Week 7 and eventually forcing him to IR and under the knife. Overall, his production fell short of the investment made in him by the Redskins last March -- five years, $40 million -- as he hauled in 20 of his 35 targets for 262 yards and two touchdowns in seven games. With a recovery timeline of 6-to-8 months, he may be able to join his teammates on the field during OTAs and mandatory minicamp in May and/or June. In the end, though, training camp is more realistic for an appearance. Whenever he's cleared, Richardson will be among newcomer Case Keenum's top options in the passing attack alongside Josh Doctson, Jordan Reed, Chris Thompson, Vernon Davis and Trey Quinn.

  • Redskins' Paul Richardson: Left atop depth chart
    By RotoWire Staff

    Richardson (shoulder) is one of the leaders of a Washington wideout group that lost Jamison Crowder to the Jets and Maurice Harris to the Patriots in the opening days of free agency, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports. The Redskins haven't signed any replacements, but they still have time to do some discount shopping and likely will look at wide receivers early in the upcoming draft. With Colt McCoy and Case Keenum set to compete for the starting job, there's also a good argument for using one of those early picks on a quarterback. Richardson is more than five months removed from season-ending shoulder surgery, with the estimated timeline (6-to-8 months) putting him on track to be ready for the start of training camp. The team context in Washington may not be ideal for piling up yards and touchdowns, but it at least sets up Richardson as a locked-in starter for the second season of a five-year, $40 million contract. The rest of the team's wideout depth chart is a mixture of washed up (Brian Quick), disappointing (Josh Doctson, Jehu Chesson) and unproven (Trey Quinn, Cam Sims, Robert Davis, Darvin Kidsy, Tre McBride). Richardson is the only one with a recent track record as a competent starter.

  • Richardson is facing a timeline of 6-to-8 months for his recovery from season-ending shoulder surgery, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. Richardson gutted it out for two months in the first season of a five-year contract, but he clearly wasn't the best version of himself while playing with an AC joint injury. The timing should allow for a full recovery before training camp next season, while the 2018 iteration of the Redskins is left to scramble amidst a flurry of injuries. The team will also be missing both starting guards for the rest of the season, and slot receiver Jamison Crowder (ankle) hasn't played since Week 5. Moving forward, Week 9 breakout star Maurice Harris may see steady involvement in the offense.

  • Richardson will have season-ending surgery to repair the AC joint in his shoulder, John Keim of ESPN.com reports. Richardson has been playing through the shoulder injury all season and has also been bothered by his knee at times. He should have plenty of time to recover before training camp next year, at which point he'll look to bounce back from a disappointing first year in Washington. The news locks Maurice Harris into a top-three receiver job after his breakout 10-catch performance in Sunday's 38-14 loss to Atlanta. In addition to Richardson, the Redskins lost both starting guards to season-ending injuries during the embarrassing defeat.
