Redskins first-round wide receiver Josh Doctson sufferd a foot injury during practice on Tuesday, Redskins coach Jay Gruden told reporters.

Gruden said X-rays came back negative but said the team will play it safe and Doctson will be held out at least through this week.

With Doctson sidelined and DeSean Jackson not attending OTA workouts, the receivers with the first unit in Wednesday’s practice were Pierre Garcon and Ryan Grant.

Doctson missed the end of his final college season with a wrist injury. He missed some practice time earlier in the OTA sessions with a sore Achilles tendon.

He’s earned praise for the work he’s done when he’s been on the field. Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins called Doctson “a natural” receiver and “a special player.”
