RICHMOND—The Redskins will be without second-year cornerback Josh Holsey for the start of training camp and it’s not due to anything that happened related to football.
According to Mike Garafolo of NFL media, Holsely suffered a freak injury when a table fell on his foot. Yes, you got that right.
There was no indication of the exact nature of the foot injury or how long it might sideline Holsey.
Holsey was a seventh-round pick in 2017. He was active for 12 games and he appeared mostly on special teams. On defense, he played just nine snaps.
He is in competition for a roster spot with rookies Adonis Alexander and Greg Stroman. Although he is likely to start the season far down on the depth chart if he does make a team, it’s not good to lose a player this early.
Jay Gruden is scheduled to address the media today at about 4 p.m. and he should have further updates then.
