Well this isn't the news you want for a second-year pro who was injured for most of his rookie season.
In a disappointing piece of news delivered by coach Jay Gruden, Redskins wide receiver Josh Doctson has been diagnosed with a slight hamstring pull.
Gruden said Josh Doctson’s MRI revealed slight hamstring pull. The 2d-yr WR is day to day. "We don't want this to be a recurring thing."— Liz Clarke (@lizclarketweet) August 7, 2017
Doctson left the field early on Sunday night during 7-on-7 drills and was checked on by the training staff before limping to the locker room. It appears that he will be day-to-day.
While that may not be cause for concern for most players, Doctson, the Redskins first-round pick last year, missed 14 games in 2016 with Achilles injuries, recording just two catches for 66 yards as a rookie. He is expected to compete for a starting role this season alongside Terrelle Pryor, but this obviously hurts those chances.
Also, hamstring injuries linger, so not a great bit of news for the Redskins.
Before this, the 24-year-old speedster was in the midst of a solid camp, where Gruden has raved about the possibilities of Doctson and Pryor's formidable size.
“I do like to have bigger receivers in the red zone here and there to be able to throw some fades, too. What the heck, you know, I love the fade,” Gruden said. “You can throw the back-shoulder fade. You can throw it over the top. They can go up and get seam-balls.”
Hopefully he gets healthy, but this is another knock against a guy who
