The Redskins desperately need former first-round draft pick Josh Doctson to make the leap to bona fide difference-maker in 2018.
The oft-injured wide receiver is an exceptional route-runner with great ball-tracking skills. But staying healthy has always been a concern with Doctson.
On Day 6 of the Redskins 2018 training camp, Josh Doctson went to the ground trying to make a catch at the team's morning practice and landed hard after it looked like Josh Norman landed on him.
Early information is that it seems to be an issue with his left arm or shoulder.

Doctson exited the field with members of the Redskins training staff and headed toward the medical tent.
Doctson is no stranger to injuries in training camp, having dealt with an Achillies injury that took away all but two games his rookie year alone.
Following the practice, the Redskins confirmed that Doctson is being evaluated for a shoulder injury.
UPDATE: Doctson took to Twitter to let everyone know he's fine.
