An injury to WR Josh Doctson may open a door for Zach Pascal

by Andy Hilton, UltimateRecruit

Old Dominion wide receiver Zach Pascal hooked up with the Washington Redskins as an undrafted rookie free agent.

On the most recent “unofficial” depth chart released by the Redskins, Pascal was listed as a third stringer. Yesterday’s news from training camp may have him moving up and it my have him making the 53 man roster.

Last year’s first round pick of the Redskins, wide receiver Josh Doctson, missed most of the 2016 season with a series of Achilles tendon strains. He only played in two games.

In yesterday’s practice in Richmond, Doctson went down with a hamstring injury. The good news for Doctson is that it seems to be unrelated to last year’s Achilles injuries. The bad news for Doctson is that it puts him in doubt for Thursday night’s preseason opener when they’ll visit the Baltimore Ravens.

Who sits in the starter’s position in the WR2 slot ahead of Zach Pascal? That’s Josh Doctson.

Bryan Quick is Doctson’s back up as the second string WR in that slot, but the injury has the potential to move Pascal into Quick’s spot as the immediate back-up.

Team physicians will know more about Doctson’s future on Monday once they’ve had a chance to do a full evaluation. Any missed time by Doctson could open a door for Pascal.

The Redskins will cut 30 players from the roster before their season opener against the Philadelphia Eagles. In the meantime, he’ll compete against NFL veterans like Jamison Crowder, and Terrelle Pryor.
