Washington receiver Terry McLaurin is in concussion protocol, interim coach Bill Callahan said Tuesday.

He played 61 of 70 offensive snaps against the Giants on Sunday, but McLaurin became symptomatic after the game.

“He is in concussion protocol right now, so we’ll reevaluate him on Thursday to see exactly what his game status will be,” Callahan said.

Washington practiced Tuesday, so the players could have Wednesday as their off day with their families.

McLaurin made seven catches for 86 yards against the Giants, leaving him 81 yards from 1,000 for the season.

In other news, Washington is not ready to place Dwayne Haskins on injured reserve, Callahan said, but the team will have him inactive for Sunday’s game against Dallas.

“He wouldn’t be the emergency [quarterback],” Callahan said. “He will definitely be inactive this week. We backed him down.”

  1. Scary Terry was having one heck of a rookie season. Too bad he might not be around to make it to 1k in yards. Bright future, none the less and one of the bright spots on an otherwise dreary team.

  2. This team might seem dreary right now.. but I can see the potential after Jay Gruden was let go. This just might be good enough to keep Bruce Allen around. These last few weeks as Haskins has gotten more comfortable, the Redskins have been pretty competitive and a real threat to win. I’m thinking the position they have now in the draft, is a good spot to be in for some prime talent in the early selections of every round. Next year I believe will be pretty good. Callahan has shown that he can run a professional team, but I don’t know if that’s good enough.
