Of all the Washington Redskins' 2019 draft picks, none have impressed more than wide receiver Terry McLaurin. The Redskins selected McLaurin with the 76th pick and the draftee has already proved he was worth taking.
Through three games, McLaurin has 16 receptions for 257 yards and three touchdowns. Turns out, those are historic numbers. McLaurin's the first player in NFL history to have five receptions and one touchdown in each of his first three career games.
Without a doubt, he's been one of the lone bright spots of Washington's season thus far. The Redskins are 0-3.
But according to a new report, McLaurin may not be available on Sunday. The former Ohio State receiver is nursing a hamstring injury and is listed on Washington's official injury report.
Not at all what the Redskins were hoping for. A team desperate for a win may be without one of their most dangerous weapons. Sunday's game versus the Giants looked winnable early in the week. But optimism is dwindling for now.
During his Ohio State career, McLaurin had 75 receptions for 1,251 yards and 19 touchdowns. His draft stock shot up after an impressive senior year — 35 catches for 701 yards and 11 touchdowns.
Hopefully McLaurin's injury isn't too serious. He hopes to continues his historic start this Sunday vs. the New York Giants.
Stay tuned for further updates on McLaurin and other injuries around the NFL.
