Sims was not targeted during Thursday's 41-16 win against the Cowboys. Sims logged his fifth consecutive start during the second leg of a Thanksgiving NFL slate, but he was held without a reception for the first time since Week 5. The Alabama product had generated three consecutive multi-catch performances entering Thursday's matchup, including a three-catch, 110-yard receiving day Week 9 against the Giants. Sims garnered an ample workload of 55 offensive snaps, but Terry McLaurin (92 yards) was the only Washington player to eclipse 25 receiving yards in the contest.
Sims caught both of his targets for 20 yards in Sunday's 20-0 win over the Bengals. Sims got the start and played 84 percent of offensive snaps, but he was targeted only twice on Alex Smith's 25 pass attempts. The 6-foot-5 wideout continues to be highly efficient with his limited opportunities, averaging 2.5 catches for 51.5 yards on 3.0 targets per game since he became a starter in Week 11. It's possible Sims loses some work if Dontrelle Inman (hamstring) returns for Thursday's game against Dallas.
Sims is expected to remain in the starting lineup Sunday against the Bengals with Dontrelle Inman (hamstring) inactive for the contest. Sims will likely serve as an outside receiver at the spot opposite Terry McLaurin, leaving Steven Sims and Isaiah Wright to share work out of the slot. Cam Sims has been a surprising source of big plays while Inman has been sidelined for the previous two games, hauling in seven of nine targets for 164 yards in those contests.
Sims got the start and played 94 percent of offensive snaps in Sunday's 30-27 loss to Detroit, catching four of five targets for 54 yards. Isaiah Wright and Steven Sims had six targets apiece, but both played less than half the snaps on offense, while Cam rarely left the field. It was his third consecutive start and third game in a row playing at least 74 percent of snaps. He's seen only 10 targets in that stretch, but he's made the most of them with eight catches for 186 yards. Despite the solid work, it is possible Sims loses some playing time when Dontrelle Inman (hamstring) is ready to play. Inman was a limited practice participant Thursday and Friday, so he could be back as soon as Week 11 against the Bengals.
Sims will serve as one of Washington's starting receivers Sunday in Detroit with Dontrelle Inman (hamstring) inactive for the game, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports. Though Washington returned Steven Sims from injured reserve ahead of last week's loss to the Giants, Cam still retained a starting role while Inman was sidelined. With Steven on a limited snap count in Week 9, Cam essentially served as Washington's No. 2 wideout behind Terry McLaurin, finishing with three receptions for 110 yards on four targets. That sort of yards-per-target production likely won't be sustainable, however, especially if new starting quarterback Alex Smith opts to make the short- or intermediate-range passing game more of a priority as he steps in for the injured Kyle Allen (ankle).
