Friday update: Washington has listed McLaurin as doubtful for Sunday’s game.

Thursday update: McLaurin sat out a second straight day of practice and is not trending well for Sunday.

The Washington Football team was without their No. 1 wide receiver at practice today, as Terry McLaurin was a “did not practice” on the injury report, per Adam Caplan. McLaurin missed due to an ankle injury, but a limited or missed practice has been the norm for McLaurin this season. His absence is likely for rest more than him being unable to practice.

McLaurin hasn’t been able to find the end zone that often this season, with just three trips total and none in the last six games. He does have 80 receptions for 1,078 yards though and if Washington could ever snag a strong quarterback, we would likely see those numbers skyrocket.

Washington faces a mediocre Panthers defense this week and there’s a good chance McLaurin will be ready to go. Despite his touchdown drought, his usage is too good to sit in your fantasy championships this weekend.
