Injury updates

The Washington Commanders held their last full practice before the season opener against the Arizona Cardinals today. Terry McLaurin was a full participant and he will play on Sunday. He is returning from a preseason turf toe injury, but he has looked good in practice all week.

Dax Milne was placed on injured reserve today due to a groin injury. Washington has UDFA rookie Kazmeir Allen on the practice squad, but also added former Redskins WR Jamison Crowder to the PS this week. Ron Rivera would not say who the team planned to elevate to return punts on Sunday. He did say that the kick returners would be Antonio Gibson and/or Byron Pringle

Chase Young will see his doctor today, and the hope is that he will be cleared for contact, and available for Sunday’s game. He is officially listed as questionable. James Smith-Williams is a new addition to the injury report, and is listed with an oblique injury. He’s also questionable, and this new injury, along with questions about Young’s availability, help explain re-signing DE William Bradley-King this morning.
