McLaurin (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Dallas, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports. McLaurin hasn't been able to practice since he suffered a concussion in the late stages of a Week 16 overtime loss to the Giants. He'll thus finish his rookie campaign with 58 catches for 919 yards and seven touchdowns on 93 targets in 14 games, producing a 62.4 percent catch rate and 9.9 yards per target in a Washington offense that's completed 63.3 percent of its passes for 6.8 yards per attempt. McLaurin managed the impressive stat line despite struggling with drops and battling a hamstring injury early in the season. Look for Cam Sims or Darvin Kidsy to join Kelvin Harmon and Steven Sims Jr. in three-wide formations during Sunday's regular-season finale against Dallas.
McLaurin (concussion) wasn't spotted at Friday's practice, Craig Hoffman of 106.7 The Fan Washington reports. It's possible McLaurin could get some work in behind the scenes later in the day, but he'll likely go down as a non-participant on the Redskins' injury report for the third day in a row. The rookie wideout doesn't look like he'll be available for Sunday's game in Dallas.
McLaurin (concussion) was listed as a non-participant in Thursday's practice. Per Rhiannon Walker of The Athletic, Washington hasn't ruled McLaurin out for their Week 17 matchup with the Cowboys, as the team is instead viewing the rookie as day-to-day while he remains in the concussion protocol. That being said, McLaurin would likely need to return to practice in at least a limited fashion Friday to have a realistic shot at suiting up Sunday. Washington would likely rely more heavily on Steven Sims, Kelvin Harmon and Cam Sims as the primary options in three-receiver sets if its top target is sidelined for the team's season finale.
McLaurin (concussion) wasn't present at team stretches prior to Thursday's practice, Rhiannon Walker of The Athletic reports. It's difficult for any player to get through the concussion protocol in one week, and another absence from McLaurin on Thursday would put him behind the eight ball for an appearance Sunday at Dallas. Thursday's injury report will reveal whether or not the rookie wide receiver got in any on-field work.
McLaurin (concussion) was listed as a non-participant Wednesday on the Redskins' estimated practice report, John Keim of ESPN.com reports. Washington's decision not to label McLaurin as a limited or full participant on their first report of Week 17 suggests the receiver has yet to take a notable step forward in the NFL's five-step concussion protocol. The head injury spelled an early end to McLaurin's day in Sunday's 41-35 overtime loss to the Giants, but he made his mark earlier in the game with seven receptions for 86 yards on nine targets. The Redskins will see how McLaurin progresses over the next couple of days before assessing his odds of playing in this weekend's season finale versus the Cowboys.
