Redskins receiver Josh Doctson continues to increase his activity working on a separate field than his teammates. Doctson won’t play in the preseason finale, but Gruden said there’s still a chance he’ll play in the season opener.
Gruden threw to Doctson for the first time, giving him a chance to evaluate him up close. “He looked good coming in and out of breaks,” Gruden said. “Looked very good.”
Doctson likely isn't going to jump right in and make an immediate impact even if he plays Week 1. Owners should expect to stash him for a while until there are signs of progress. Given the injury history of guys like DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon at the position, Doctson has a chance to contribute at some point this year.
