Redskins rookie wide receiver Josh Doctson injured his foot during Tuesday’s OTA practice and was held out of drills on Wednesday.

Coach Jay Gruden said X-rays of his foot came back negative and the team's medical staff doesn’t expect Doctson to miss too much time. 

“Hopefully he’ll be back next week or shortly thereafter,” Gruden said. 

Doctson missed a portion of last week’s OTAs with a sore Achilles. Gruden said Doctson’s foot and Achilles injuries are on the same leg.

It wasn’t immediately clear how many of the five OTA practices Doctson has missed thus far, but any missed time, particularly for a rookie, isn’t good. 

“It is important to get these reps,” Gruden said. “These are important, no question about it. But we have other ways to get him to learn the system. We have all the meeting room time…and we still have all of training camp and the preseason games. So he’s got plenty of time. But I’d be lying if I said these reps weren’t important.”

On Wednesday, Doctson took part in the team’s walkthrough. After stretching, though, he headed to the drill field for some work with the team’s other rehabbing players. He spent the rest of the practicing watching team drills from the sideline.
