Redskins wide receiver Josh Doctson remains questionable for Monday night’s game at New Orleans with a heel injury.
The third-year pass catcher had his heel stepped on Monday and did not practice the rest of the week. Maurice Harris is expected to be the next receiver in the rotation, but recently signed Michael Floyd could also be active for the first time since joining the team.
There was hope that the 2016 first-round pick would have a breakout season in 2018, but Doctson has just five catches for 48 yards in the first three games.
""[Jamison] Crowder knows all three [positions]," Coach Jay Gruden said Friday. “Maurice Harris is more than ready to go. [Brian] Quick is here. [Michael] Floyd is getting some reps at both X and Z and he’s doing a good job.
“[Floyd] hadn’t got a ton of reps, but I think more learning in the classroom than anything. He’s trying to study. Originally, we had him coming in here to learn one position, but now with the injury to Josh possibly, we’ve had to have him learn both spots. So, a lot of learning for him in the classroom. [Wide receiver coach] Ike [Hilliard] is doing an excellent job getting him ready. He looks good on the hoof out there.”
Pro Bowl tackle Trent Williams is also questionable after knee surgery to clean up a bursa sac issue during the bye last week. He was a full participant in practice Saturday. The surgery had been previously planned for the bye week to give extra recovery time in hopes of not having to miss a game.
The best news for the team is that running back Adrian Peterson and cornerback Josh Norman were full participants Saturday and did not receive an injury designation despite being limited Thursday and Friday. Peterson was dealing with an ankle injury while Norman had a hamstring issue.
Receiver Paul Richardson Jr. (shoulder) and guard Brandon Scherff (knee) also fully participated in Saturday’s session and are expected to play Monday. They had been previously limited in practice.
Left guard Shawn Lauvao was ruled out with a calf injury that kept him out of the win over the Packers two weeks ago. Chase Roullier will move over from center and Tony Bergstrom will start at center.
Rookie safety Troy Apke will miss his third consecutive game with a hamstring injury.
Saints receiver Ted Ginn will miss his first game of the season due to a knee injury while linebacker Manti Te’o (knee), center Cameron Tom (knee) and defensive end Trey Hendrickson (illness) were all listed as questionable.
