According to J.P. Finlay of CSNMidAtlantic.com, wide receiver Josh Doctson was back on the practice field today, for his first work since being activated from the physically unable to perform list for the Redskins.
Their first-round pick missed the entire training camp because of an Achilles injury.
Running back Matt Jones was also on the field, but was wearing a yellow no-contact jersey. He’s been dealing with a shoulder injury, though the team has been optimistic he’ll be ready for the opener against the Steelers.
It's tough to imagine Doctson having a huge role in Week 1 given the time he's missed. If Jones can't go, Rob Kelley could be in line for a bulk of the carries, so this is a situation to monitor if you're counting on Jones.
