Doctson (shoulder) is taking snaps in 11-on-11 drills at Tuesday's practice, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Doctson likely would be limited to individual work Tuesday, but it seems the third-year wideout is back at practice without any restrictions. Doctson had an MRI on his leg shortly before training camp, then suffered an AC joint sprain and a bruised heel during the first week of practice. The list of nagging injuries is particularly worrisome for a player who spent most of his rookie season on injured reserve, though it's only fair to mention that Doctson played all 16 games last year. He's primarily been working with the first-team offense in training camp, alongside Jamison Crowder and Paul Richardson in three-wide formations. It isn't clear which of the three will typically come off the field when the Redskins use two-receiver sets.
Updating a previous report, Doctson (shoulder) did not have his injured heel drained, Kimberley A. Martin of The Washington Post reports.
Head coach Jay Gruden confirmed the report of Doctson's heel being drained was not true. Still, the 25-year-old receiver has endured a tough start to training camp, as he began with an MRI on his leg followed by a shoulder injury. The Redskins may exercise caution with him in the foreseeable future in order to avoid lingering issues heading into the season.
Doctson (shoulder) underwent draining of his heel earlier this week, Brian Mitchell of NBC Sports Washington reports.
Doctson has endured a tough start to training camp, kicking it off with an MRI on his leg, injuring his shoulder Wednesday and following Thursday's revelation. According to JP Finlay, the MRI has no connection with the draining, but taken together the health of his lower body will be something to watch as camp and the preseason continue. There's an expectation that he returns to practice by Saturday, per Rich Tandler of NBC Sports Washington, but the severity of the shoulder issue likely will dictate what kind of workload he can take on.
Doctson (shoulder) will sit out Thursday's practice but is expected to return to action by Saturday, Rich Tandler of NBC Sports reports.
Doctson took a scary fall during Wednesday's practice, and while there may have been some concern about a possible collarbone injury, it turns out he escaped with an AC joint sprain. Head coach Jay Gruden cleared that up when speaking to the media Thursday, saying "everything checked out fine." It appears Doctson has dodged a bullet here, as his absence is expected to be measured in a matter of days as opposed to weeks.
Doctson (shoulder) is believed to have suffered an AC joint sprain during Wednesday's practice, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
There may have been some concern about a broken collarbone after Doctson took a hard fall on his shoulder, but it appears he escaped the incident with a less severe injury. He still could miss some practice time and might even be in danger of missing the preseason opener, depending on the severity of the sprain. The Redskins plan to provide another update Thursday after testing on Doctson's shoulder is finished.
