It's Week 7 for the Washington Football Team, but if you look at the wide receivers they'll be relying on for their game against the Cowboys, you might start wondering if it's Week 17.

An already lesser-known collection of players will be even more unrecognizable on Sunday, thanks to injuries to Isaiah Wright and Antonio Gandy-Golden. Due to those health troubles, Ron Rivera told the media he'll be pulling up two guys from Washington's practice squad in order to help out at FedEx Field. 

So, before kickoff gets here, use the below primer on the Burgundy and Gold's pass catching crew in order to ensure you know who's who for the NFC East showdown.

Terry McLaurin

You know him. He's one of the best players at his position in the NFL, he always produces and never complains, and he's just going to keep getting better. Moving on.

Dontrelle Inman

Inman will be the No. 2 versus Dallas, a spot on the depth chart he's had all year. 

What's crazy is that, unlike McLaurin and like the other three names below him, he's a former undrafted prospect. He's established himself as a pretty reliable option during his brief stint with Washington, but that fact illustrates just how unheralded this section of the roster is right now.

Cam Sims

The man known for his highlights at training camp in the summer finally did something in the fall, as Sims hauled in Kyle Allen's beautiful fourth quarter throw in New York for an extremely clutch touchdown.

Sunday will mark Sims' best chance as a pro to get himself involved in the offense, and like he showed on that score at MetLife Stadium, he's got something to offer. Can he offer it consistently enough, though?

Tony Brown

Now comes the pair of targets Rivera is adding from his practice squad.

Brown arrived in Washington just ahead of the regular season, so the free agent out of Colorado should have a decent idea of what the offense and Scott Turner are trying to accomplish.

After being bypassed in the 2020 draft, Brown had stints with the Browns (nice!) and the Giants before joining his current franchise. He doesn't appear to have a Wikipedia page, which is pretty remarkable.

Jeff Badet

Here's a name that all 27 fans of the XFL's Dallas Renegades will remember.

Badet, who began his college career at Kentucky and finished it at Oklahoma, caught on with the Vikings in 2018 and remained in Minnesota until being cut in 2019. That's when his life gets really interesting.

While the NFL Draft didn't treat him well, the XFL Draft did: He was selected fourth overall in the skill player part of the event by the Renegades. Their coach, Bob Stoops, was Badet's coach with the Sooners and no doubt was tantalized by his sub 4.3-speed.

Badet didn't exactly explode with Dallas, but he did haul in 16 catches before the league folded. Now, he's getting a shot with Washington.

There's one more, amazing nugget on Badet, by the way. 

Remember that 40 Yards of Gold race-thing a year or so ago, where a bunch of fast football players got together to see who was fastest? Well, Badet participated in it and lost in the first round, but he still picked up a check for $25,000 — money that he never actually saw.

"I just heard a bank was saying there were zero dollars in an account that they wrote it to, so it’s just one big scam," Badet told TwinCities.com in June 2019. "I’m calling it one big scam."

His check for Sunday should hopefully go a long way in making him feel better about that worthless one.
