CB Joshua Holsey will miss start of Redskins training camp with freak foot injury


NFL: Washington Redskins at Tampa Bay Buccaneers Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Redskins had an unusually high amount of injuries last year, which means a lot of players recovering from offseason surgeries. Trent Williams, Morgan Moses, Jordan Reed, and Chris Thompson will all be "eased into" training camp as they get ready for real football.

A new injury was reported today involving 2nd-year CB Joshua Holsey. A table fell on his foot, which will cause him to miss the start of training camp tomorrow. Holsey was expected to compete for the slot corner job that opened up when Kendall Fuller was traded to the Kansas City Chiefs in a deal that brought QB Alex Smith to the Redskins.

Former Dallas Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick was signed in the offseason, and has been working in the slot. Greg Stroman was also drafted in the 7th round this year. This injury is unfortunate for the 7th tound pick who is looking to secure a spot on the team.
