Sims is expected to replace Trey Quinn (concussion) as Washington's top slot receiver Sunday in Green Bay, Kyle Stackpole of the Redskins' official site reports.
Sims filled in after Quinn suffered the concussion early in last week's 29-21 win over the Panthers, ultimately catching three of four targets for 29 yards while playing 58 percent of snaps on offense. The undrafted rookie isn't a great bet for more than three or four targets, but he has shown some explosiveness with a 65-yard rushing touchdown (Week 5) and a 91-yard kick return TD (Week 12). Given how little Quinn has done this year, it isn't out the question for Sims to take the No. 3 receiver job on a more permanent basis.
Sims caught three of four targets for 29 yards in Sunday's 29-21 win over the Panthers.
The undrafted rookie played a season-high 58 percent of snaps on offense, filling in as the No. 3 receiver after Trey Quinn suffered a concussion in the first half. Sims had a kick return touchdown the previous week and a 65-yard rushing score earlier in the year, so any contributions he makes as a pass catcher might be seen as a bonus. He should get another look in the No. 3 role if Quinn is inactive for Week 14's game at Green Bay.
Sims had a 91-yard kickoff return touchdown in Sunday's 19-16 win over the Lions.
Sims also drew two targets but finished without a catch. He's hauled in 11 of 16 targets for just 51 yards on the season, but he at least has shown some big-play ability in other facets, with the kick-return touchdown Sunday and a 66-yard rushing score earlier in the year. Paul Richardson's hamstring injury could open up a few extra snaps for Sims in Week 13 at Carolina.
Sims caught two of four targets for six yards in Sunday's 34-17 loss to the Jets.
With Paul Richardson (hamstring) inactive, Sims and Kelvin Harmon both got some extra work. It was Harmon who took advantage with a 5-53-0 receiving line, leading the team in both catches and targets (six). Sims figures to work as the No. 4 wide receiver if Richardson isn't back for Week 12 against Detroit.
Sims caught his only target for a 12-yard gain during Sunday's 24-9 loss to Buffalo.
Coming off a career-high four touches in Week 7, Sims was targeted just once in Dwayne Haskins' debut start. The rookie receiver has made some nifty plays as a runner, particularly his 65-yard touchdown in Week 5, but Sims is only averaging 5.0 yards per catch on nine receptions this season. Fans can probably continue to expect a learning curve down the stretch for Haskins and, to a lesser extent, Sims, as they grow more comfortable in their first season. The good news is that the Jets' 24th-ranked pass defense awaits after Washington's Week 10 bye.
Sims (toe) is active for Thursday's game against the Vikings, Andrew Groover of NFL Network reports.
Sims was initially listed as questionable for Week 8, but he's successfully managed to shake his toe issue. The 22-year-old figures to do most of his damage as Washington's top kick returner, though he'll also serve as a depth receiving option.

Sims was able to practice in a limited fashion Tuesday and Wednesday, but he's still in danger of missing the first game of his career. The Kansas University product has only been targeted nine times in seven games, and Kelvin Harmon figures to bump into the No. 4 wideout role if Sims can't go.
Sims (toe) logged limited practice during Tuesday's session.
Sims was estimated to be a non-participant for Monday's session but, as evidenced by this news, seems to be progressing nicely from injury. The 22-year-old is coming off three receptions for five yards last week and still has a chance to suit up in Thursday's clash against Minnesota. If he can't go, Wendell Smallwood would likely take over kick return duties, and Kelvin Harmon would bump up the depth chart at receiver.
Sims was estimated to be a non-participant on Monday's injury report with a toe injury, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.
Sims had three receptions for five yards and returned three kickoffs for 63 yards in Sunday's loss to the 49ers, but he apparently sustained the toe injury at some point. The 22-year-old will likely need to progress to limited participation in order to have a legitimate chance of suiting up Thursday against the VIkings.
Sims took his lone carry for a 65-yard touchdown and caught two of three targets for one yard in Sunday's 33-7 loss to the Patriots.
Sims provided Washington's only real highlight on offense, breaking a couple tackles to take an end-around to the house in the first quarter. He also handled a season-high 54 percent snap share, with Washington using some four-wide formations in the absence of tight ends Jordan Reed (concussion) and Vernon Davis (concussion). Sims is making a nice case for a part-time role on offense in addition to his work as a kick return specialist, and he could get a few more chances with Bill Callahan replacing Jay Gruden as head coach.
