Doctson (concussion) isn't participating in Thursday's practice, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
Doctson's inability to log any reps during the Redskins' first two practices of Week 15 suggests he still has multiple steps to clear in the NFL's five-phase concussion protocol. With Washington's Week 15 matchup against the Jaguars just three days away, Doctson doesn't seem to be trending toward suiting up, though the Redskins may not make an official call on his status until gameday. In the event Doctson is sidelined, Maurice Harris and Michael Floyd would likely be featured alongside Jamison Crowder (ankle) in most of Washington's three-receiver formations.
Doctson (concussion) didn't practice Wednesday, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports. "I think Josh has a chance to be OK [for Sunday's game against the Jaguars]" coach Jay Gruden said. "He's getting checked out by an independent guy and hopefully we'll know more [Thursday.]"
Doctson entered the concussion protocol in the wake of a Week 14 demolition at the hands of the Giants. Gruden's comments likely indicate Doctson had an evaluation Wednesday to get through one of the five steps in the protocol, but ultimately the wideout will need to gain clearance from an independent neurologist to play this weekend.

Doctson resides in the NFL's in concussion protocol as of Wednesday, which clouds his status for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. If he's not cleared for the contest, added Week 15 snaps would available for Maurice Harris and Michael Floyd.
Doctson is in the concussion protocol, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.
Doctson caught four of five targets for a career-high 84 yards in Sunday's 40-16 loss to the Giants, unexpectedly having one of his better games with Mark Sanchez and Josh Johnson taking snaps. The third-year wideout apparently got concussed somewhere along the way, putting his availability into question for Week 15 at Jacksonville. Maurice Harris and Michael Floyd would be the top candidates to take on vacated snaps, albeit in a nightmare matchup with Johnson under center.

This was a strong performance from Doctson, especially considering his team trailed 40-0 through three quarters. The 84 receiving yards marked a season high, but Doctson will be hard-pressed to match that total against the Jaguars in Week 15. Josh Johnson will start that game under center for the Redskins after replacing an ineffective Mark Sanchez in this one.
