Terry McLaurin didn’t play in Week 16 due to an ankle injury and head coach Ron Rivera said yesterday that McLaurin is in a walking boot to protect a high-ankle sprain suffered in Week 15 against the Seahawks.
Those injuries often keep players out for multiple weeks, but Washington isn’t closing the door on McLaurin at this point.
The hope is that he will be able to practice outside because the team doesn’t want him to work on the turf field because of his ankle. If he’s able to do that without further difficulty, the door to playing against Philly will likely be open.
