When Washington selected wide receiver Josh Doctson with its first-round selection in the 2016 NFL Draft, they were excited about the impact the physical specimen could make in the red zone as a rookie and his long-term future. But after a strained Achilles sidelined him for much of camp and has now lingered into the season, the team has decided to place Doctson on injured reserve.
