Wide receiver Josh Doctson missed his first training camp and preseason in the NFL, but he’ll be on the active roster for the start of the regular season.

The Redskins announced Saturday that Doctson has been activated from the physically unable to perform list. Doctson has been sidelined with an Achilles injury, but will be eligible to start practicing and playing immediately thanks to the roster move.

Another member of the 2016 draft class won’t be joining him. Fifth-round pick Matt Ioannidis was placed on waivers

Thorpe; running back Mack Brown; defensive end Corey Crawford; tight end Marcel Jensen; guard Nila Kasitati; fullback Joe Kerridge; safety Geno Matias-Smith; and offensive lineman Vinston Painter.
