The Washington Commanders are taking a beating due to injuries, according to John Keim of ESPN. Wide receiver Jahan Dotson reaggravated his left hamstring injury, and he will be listed as questionable for Week 7.
The youngster, according to Dotson via Keim, thinks he “just needs a little rest” and will “be OK.”
The rookie out of Penn State, who had a scorching start to his professional career, hasn’t played for the Commanders since Week 4’s matchup with the vengeful NFC East rival Dallas Cowboys. Jahan Dotson has four games under his belt and four touchdowns to go along with his 12 catches and 152 receiving yards. In Dotson’s place, second-year receiver Dyami Brown has done relatively well, but the organisation would prefer to have their first-round pick in the NFL Draft recover from his hamstring issues and rejoin the lineup.
Even if Dotson does play against the Green Bay Packers in Week 7, it is impossible to predict how skilled the quarterback will be. Since starting quarterback Carson Wentz will be out for a while with a fractured finger, the Commanders will start backup Taylor Heinicke in his place.
Fortunately, Heinicke’s qualities are known by Commanders supporters. Heinicke started 16 games last season and threw for 3419 yards and 20 touchdowns against 15 interceptions.
Every possible victory is crucial for the team’s chances of salvaging the season, as their 2-4 record in 2022 has put them in last place and two games behind the 4-2 Dallas Cowboys.
