Washington Redskins wide receiver Josh Doctson has suffered another injury, a shoulder setback, but contrary to a previous assessment, the Redskins target won’t be out too long.
NBC Sports Washington’s Brian Mitchell, a longtime Redskins return man, said Doctson also needed tohave his heel drained earlier this week. Jay Gruden, though, refuted that, via Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk.
“I don’t think I’ve ever heard of a heel being drained. So I don’t know where that came from. That is not true, but he’s going to do a little something out here today. We’ll see. I’d be surprised if he went full-go, but he did not have his heel drained.”
Doctson has struggled to stay healthy during his NFL career. The 2016 first-rounder missed all of his rookie year because of Achilles trouble and encountered hamstring issues last year.
Here’s the latest from some teams’ pass-catching situations, shifting to more contract talk.
- Eric Decker‘s one-year Patriots agreement comes in at just shy of $2M. The former Broncos, Jets and Titans wideout signed for $1.9M, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports. Rapoport notes Decker has a chance to earn up to $2.5M via incentives tied to his reception count. Decker suited up in Patriots gear for the first time Saturday. Now 31, Decker is entering his ninth season.
- WhileEmmanuel Sanders has yet to relinquish his status as the Broncos’ No. 2 wide receiver, a role he inherited from Decker in 2014, the team looks to have found a No. 3 target at long last. Having failed to find a capable cog for that job sinceWes Welker‘s exit, the Broncos appear to be zeroing in on Courtland Sutton as their No. 3 receiver, Lindsay Jones of USA Today writes. The SMU product’s drawn rave reviews throughout Broncos camp, and Jones notes the second-rounder’s all but locked up the No. 3 job going into preseason play. Fourth-round pickDaeSean Hamilton, viewed as a superior route-runner than the 6-foot-3 Sutton, is expected to play a role as well. But Sutton will likely start out as Denver’s third option. The rookies’ work will be interesting, given the non-guaranteed contract-year salaries for the Broncos’ longtime starting wideouts in 2019.
The Vikings now have three of their four major offseason extension candidates signed long-term, with Anthony Barr being the only member of the contract-year quartet (Barr/Stefon Diggs/Eric Kendricks/Danielle Hunter) still attached to a rookie contract. Diggs was the latest to sign, and some details of that five-year, $72M extension have emerged. Of the $40M in guarantees, Ben Goessling of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports that only Diggs’ $15M signing bonus and $1.9M 2018 base salary are fully guaranteed at signing. The remainder of the wide receiver’s guaranteed money will depend on his roster status. If Diggs is on the Vikings roster by the third day of the 2019 league year, all of his $8.9M 2019 base becomes guaranteed. The same structure exists for the 2020 and ’21 league years, with Goessling reporting Diggs’ 2020 base of $10.9M becomes fully guaranteed on Day 3 of that league year and $3.3M of his $10.9M 2021 salary will be guaranteed if he’s with the Vikes on Day 3 of that league year.
