Skins WR Josh Doctson expected to play on MNF

CSN Mid-Atlantic - [Full Article]

The Achilles injury that kept Redskins rookie Josh Doctson on the sidelines for most of the offseason improved enough over the last week that the receiver took part in multiple practices after sitting out all of training camp and the preseason. Now, it seems the injury might be healed to the point Doctson can play Monday night against the Steelers.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network has reported that Docston will suit up for the game.

Fantasy Impact: 

Overall, Doctson is probably a little behind so it's hard to imagine he'll have a huge role in Week 1, especially with DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon and Jamison Crowder. But it's a good sign he made it back and he'll likely become more involved as the season goes on.
