Sore Achilles’ Continues to Bedevil Rookie Doctson

by Brian McNally

RICHMOND — Redskins wide receiver Josh Doctson is still not close to returning to the field for practice as he deals with a sore left Achilles tendon.

Doctson, who was originally hurt on May 25 during OTAs, hasn’t participated in any on-field work with his teammates since May 31.

“Nope, I’ve got nothing for you,” Washington coach Jay Gruden said on Sunday before practice. “Same as yesterday. No update.”

Doctson hasn’t talked to reporters since July 29 after daily questions about his progress became repetitive. Multiple sources indicated at the time that Doctson would miss another “two-to-three weeks,” but that was far from certain until the medical staff saw progress in his sore Achilles.

Doctson has played catch on the field in recent days before practice. But his movements in front of reporters have been limited. He occasionally wears a walking boot on the field, though not in the past week.

Doctson usually works on the smaller drill field with team medical personnel when doing rehabilitation exercises during practice. But on Sunday he walked onto the field in shorts and a t-shirt, but didn’t do any work on the drill field in front of media.
