Sims (ankle) has been healthy since October, Kyle Stackpole of the Redskins' official site reports. Sims made the 53-man roster as an undrafted rookie in 2018, only to suffer a high-ankle sprain on the opening kickoff of the regular season. The Redskins were happy to stash him on injured reserve with an eye toward 2019, but Sims admits he struggled with not being able to play even after he regained his health. The 6-foot-5 wide receiver caught just 41 passes in four seasons at Alabama, struggling to make his mark in an offense dominated by Calvin Ridley and a strong rushing attack. The story was much the same in 2018 for fellow Alabama product Robert Foster, who landed with Buffalo as an undrafted rookie and went on to post a 27-541-3 receiving line. The Redskins hope Sims can make a similar impact as a downfield weapon, though his game revolves around size more so than speed.
Sims will receive an MRI on his injured ankle Monday, John Keim of ESPN.com reports. With Maurice Harris (concussion) and Trey Quinn (ankle) also injured, any prolonged absence for Sims could thin out the bottom half of the Redskins wide receiver depth chart. The 22-year-old will hope the MRI results bear good news.
Sims (ankle) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. Sims was forced out in the first quarter with an ankle injury, which has been deemed severe enough to sideline him for the remainder of the Redskins' season opener. Trey Quinn could see increased snaps with Sims out.
Sims is questionable to return Sunday against the Cardinals due to an ankle injury. Sims made Washington's 53-man roster after an impressive preseason, but the undrafted rookie's regular-season debut seems off to a rocky start. Expect an update on Sims' injury after the game if he is unable to return to the field Sunday.
Sims (thigh) returned to practice Monday, John Keim of ESPN.com reports. Sims was held out of Saturday's preseason contest due to the lingering thigh issue. While the Redskins would have loved to see Sims prove his worth in live game action, the 22-year-old will have his chance to earn a roster spot in the team's fourth and final preseason game Thursday.
