Josh Doctson, Matt Jones questionable for Washington on Monday

Washington opens the season on Monday night against the Steelers, and a pair of key offensive weapons may, or may not, be available for the game.

Running back Matt Jones (shoulder) and rookie receiver Josh Doctson (Achilles) are both questionable. It used to mean 50-50; it now means that they are somewhere in the gulf between 99.9 percent and 50.

Also questionable for Washington are defensive end Kendall Reyes (groin), guard Spencer Long (ankle), tackle Ty Nshekhe (illness), and nose tackle Kedric Gholston (back).

All fully participated in practice on Saturday, with the exception of Gholston. His injury seems to be new; Gholston wasn’t listed on the report before Saturday.

    Washington will lose this game badly I think. The Steelers are too phsyical of a football team to be beaten by the lowly Washington team.

    Since when is Doctson a key offensive weapon? We haven’t had him on the field all offseason and he is the 4th WR at best along with being the 5th options tops in the passing game with Reed, Jackson, Garcon, and Crowder clearly ahead of him.

    I like it when Steelers fans think they have a cake walk

    I really like the way the Skins recievers match up against the Steelers secondary!

    You are whiter than snow. Hilarious that you go to such lengths to hide your bigotry.

    Hi Religion – the Redskins will lose badly you say? Care to put your money where your mouth is?

    Poor Steelers fans. Not only will you get the stuffing beat out of you. You have to wait another day before it happens.
