Monday update: McLaurin has officially been cleared of his concussion and removed from the injury report for Tuesday’s matchup with the Eagles.
Saturday update: McLaurin logged a full practice Saturday, so the receiver is trending in the right direction to be cleared from the league’s concussion protocol ahead of Tuesday’s game against the Eagles.
Friday update: Head coach Ron Rivera said he was optimistic McLaurin will be cleared to play, per John Keim. He is listed as questionable for Sunday.
Thursday update: Washington got some good news on offense. Wide receiver Terry McLaurin was a limited participant in practice on Thursday, per JP Finlay. He is recovering from a concussion and this indicates he is making progress in the league’s concussion protocol.
Washington Football Team wide receiver Terry McLaurin suffered a concussion in Week 14 and wasn’t able to practice on Wednesday, per Nicki Jhabvala. But, he was able to work on the side with trainers. That’s a good sign, but not enough to make any likely predictions yet. If he can get a limited practice in on Thursday, his chances to play against the Eagles would take a significant step forward.
Washington also had to put Cam Sims on the COVID-19 list and Sims stepped up in McLaurin’s place last week and put together a strong outing. If McLaurin and Sims can’t go, the team would be very thin at the position, with Adam Humphries, Desndre Carter and Dyami Brown as the Top 3 receivers.
Fantasy football implications
If McLaurin can play, he’s likely the only receiver worth playing in fantasy. If he can’t, Humphries or Sims, if he can play, would be the best bets.
