The playing time of Josh Doctson in the Redskins’ season opener was a topic of discussion. In Week 2 against the Rams, his playing time increased by nearly 50 percent but he still is looking for his first catch of the season.
After being in 20 plays against the Eagles and not being targeted on a single pass attempt, Doctson played 29 snaps in the Rams game. The result was one target but it was a fade pass in the end zone that he never had a chance to get his hands on. The 2016 first-round pick still has a zero on the stat sheet in the receptions column.
Last week, HC Jay Gruden said Doctson would have to earn more playing time, so that at least looks to be the case. Although, most of us thought he'd be on a must faster pace by now. Until we see more, he's not safe for typical lineups.
