ASHBURN — Redskins wide receiver Jamison Crowder missed practice on Tuesday with an injured knee.
That’s a setback for Crowder, who missed the opening preseason game on. Aug. 11 against Atlanta with a hamstring injury. Crowder was initially hurt during a training camp practice in Richmond on Aug. 4. He was back on the field for practice on Aug. 13 and made his preseason debut last Friday against the New York Jets, when he then injured the knee.
But Crowder was working on a side field with team trainers on Tuesday next to injured teammates Josh Doctson (sore left Achilles) and Matt Jones (separated left shoulder). It remains to be seen if he will play in the third preseason game this Friday against the Buffalo Bills at FedEx Field.
“It’s part of the process,” Redskins coach Jay Gruden said. “[Crowder] has a little sore knee and he’s just going through the rehab. We’ll see if he’s ready to go Friday or not. I don’t know yet.”
