When the Washington Redskins face the New York Giants this weekend, the offense could be without its best wide receiver. Terry McLaurin is nursing an injury that might keep him out of action this Sunday.

Although the Redskins have struggled on offense this season, McLaurin is having an excellent start to his career.

On Monday, the Ohio State product became the first player in NFL history to record at least five receptions and a touchdown in each of his first three games.

McLaurin didn't suffer an injury on Monday night against the Chicago Bears. However, he did injure his hamstring during practice on Thursday.

As a result, the Redskins were without McLaurin this afternoon.

Since McLaurin isn't practicing on Friday, it doesn't bode well for his chances of playing this weekend. Suffering an injury this late in the week makes it an uphill climb for the third-round pick.

McLaurin has 16 receptions for 257 yards and three touchdowns. He's quickly become Case Keenum's go-to target on third downs.

Washington is still searching for its first win of the season. It'll be even harder to pick up the victory on Sunday if McLaurin is inactive.

The Redskins will release their official injury report later today.
