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).
Sims caught three of four targets for 110 yards in Sunday's 23-20 loss to the Giants.
Sims worked as the No. 2 WR with 74 percent snap share, while Steven Sims and Isaiah Wright got only 30 percent apiece. Granted, this was with Dontrelle Inman (hamstring) inactive and (Steven) Sims in his first game back from a prolonged absence, so it isn't necessarily clear Cam Sims will maintain the same role for Week 10 at Detroit. It is worth noting that Cam has been highly efficient with his limited chances this year, catching seven of eight targets for 171 yards and a touchdown.
Sims caught his lone target for 22 yards in Sunday's 25-3 win over the Cowboys.
Antonio Gandy-Golden (hamstring) went to IR after a Week 6 loss to the Giants and Isaiah Wright (shoulder) was ruled out for Sunday's game, so Sims started and played 88 percent of the offensive snaps. It didn't turn into much production, but he out-snapped both Dontrelle Inman by 38 snaps and Terry McLaurin by three snaps. That level of usage is bound to regress eventually, and with a Week 8 bye on tap, it's possible this was just a one-week surge.
Sims caught his lone target for a 22-yard touchdown in Sunday's 20-19 loss to the Giants.
Sims came in for Isaiah Wright, who suffered what appeared to be a shoulder injury on the final drive. Antonio Gandy-Golden had injured his hamstring earlier in the game, so Sims, Terry McLaurin and Dontrelle Inman were Washington's only healthy wide receivers by the end. Sims promptly scored a touchdown, but his team came up short on the two-point attempt and wasn't able to recover the ensuing onside kick. Sims will have a top-three role at WR if Inman and Gandy-Golden can't make it back for Week 7 against Dallas. The 2018 UDFA has bounced between the bottom of Washington's roster and the practice squad for three years now, with Sunday's touchdown being the first of his career.
Washington promoted Sims to the active roster Tuesday.
Sims has played both games thus far but has reverted to the practice squad following each outing. Despite playing mainly in a special-teams role, the 24-year-old receiver earned a full-time role on the active roster, but his offensive impact likely will still be minimal.
Sims reverted back to Washington's practice squad Monday, according to the league's official transaction report.
Sims was called up to the active roster ahead of Sunday's game, but he only ended up playing in four offensive snaps for Washington. He now returns to the practice squad, but he could be activated again Week 3 as Washington continues to deal with an injury-hampered receiving corps.
Sims was promoted to Washington's active roster Saturday, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.
Sims played in Week 1 but played all 16 of his snaps on special teams. With the Football Team's receiver corps healthy, he'll likely serve in a similar role Sunday versus the Cardinals.
Sims reverted to Washington's practice squad.
Sims suited up in the season-opening win over the Eagles, but he only played on special teams. The 24-year-old receiver has played nine NFL games over three seasons, recording two receptions for 27 yards.
Sims was elevated to Washington's active roster Saturday.
Sims landed back on Washington's practice squad after being cut late in training camp. Reports indicated he was impressive throughout practices this summer, and he may have a chance to serve a depth role among the team's receiving corps in Week 1 against Philadelphia.
Washington signed Sims to the practice squad Sunday, Kyle Stackpole of the team's official site reports.
Sims put together an impressive training camp, though his efforts weren't enough to earn a spot on the initial regular-season roster. The Alabama product has appeared in eight combined games for Washington over the last two seasons.
Sims was waived by Washington on Saturday, Ben Standig of The Athletic reports.
The move, along with the waiving of Trey Quinn, essentially confirms Dontrelle Inman and Antonio Gandy-Golden will be the No. 3 and 4 WRs to start the season, although it's possible the rash of early transactions by Washington could be in an effort to open up roster spots for additional signings down the road. In either case, expect the majority of the team's passing attack to funnel through Terry McLaurin and Steven Sims.
Coach Ron Rivera mentioned Sims as one of Washington's more impressive wide receivers during training camp, Sam Fortier of The Washington Post reports.
Terry McLaurin, Steven Sims and Dontrelle Inman have been getting most of the first-team work, but Inman in particular appears vulnerable to a challenge. Sims and rookie Antonio Gandy-Golden are the top candidates to apply pressure for outside receiver snaps, though Sims was limited to two receptions in seven games last year.
Sims played seven games in 2019, catching two of three targets for 27 yards.
Sims saw each of his three targets over the final two weeks of the year, even playing 63 percent of snaps on offense in the season finale when Terry McLaurin (concussion) was unavailable. Sims will need to battle for a roster spot in 2020 under a new coaching staff, entering his third NFL season with minimal game experience. If he does stick around, it likely will be as the fourth or fifth choice at wide receiver.
Sims (coach's decision) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Lions.
Sims was recently brought up from the practice squad due to Paul Richardson's hamstring injury last week, but he has yet to see a snap. In Sims' stead, Kelvin Harmon and Steven Sims are expected to handle depth receiving duties Sunday.
Sims signed a contract with the Redskins on Saturday, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
Sims was brought up from the practice squad after Paul Richardson (hamstring) was ruled out ahead of Sunday's contest. Sims is expected to provide some depth at the wide receiver position behind the likes of Terry McLaurin, Trey Quinn, Kelvin Harmon and Steven Sims.
The Redskins cut Sims on Saturday, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.
Sims was cut to make room for running back Craig Reynolds on the active roster. The Alabama product appeared in just one game for the Redskins this season, in which he played two snaps on offense and was not targeted.
Sims (coach's decision) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.
Sims got the call late last week from the practice squad, and will have to wait another week to see his number called for game action. His absence won't effect the offense as the team will roll with five receivers for the contest.
