The Redskins will expect more out of WR Josh Doctson this season, especially with the departures of DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garçon to other NFC teams in free agency while Terrelle Pryor Sr. and Brian Quick need time to acclimate to a new offense.
“I’m happy,” Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said last week at the NFL’s annual League Meetings in Phoenix when asked about the tweet. “That’s a big thing with him. We took it really slow. I think Larry Hess and the training room did a great job with him. We sent him to a lot of doctors to try and figure out what was wrong with him. We took it slow and I think he’s in a good place mentally and that’s half the battle. We’ll continue to gradually build him through OTAs and the mandatory camp so hopefully we’ll get him to full speed in training camp and go from there. I’m excited as heck to watch him play.”

Doctson’s already gotten a jump on his second season with the Redskins, as he went to Florida with some of the other wide receivers to work on timing with Kirk Cousins.
