To say Washington Redskins Josh Doctson had a disappointing rookie campaign is an understatement. The wide receiver was the Redskins top pick in the first round, and 22nd overall pick, in last years NFL draft.
The former TCU star, and college All-American, was expected to give the Redskins offense another potent weapon to pair up with star receivers DeSean Jackson, and Pierre Garcon. Add in up-and-coming receiver Jamison Crowder, and Jordan Reed, and the offense was supposed to rival any offensive unit in the NFL.
Unfortunately for Doctson, he injured his Achilles in mini-camp. The injury would derail his rookie campaign and limit him to only one game played.
He posted a video of his recovery progress and by all accounts looks to be making tremendous strides back on the field.
Via Master Tesfatsion of the Washington Post, Doctson posted a Snapchat video showing some of his latest footwork and catching drills from Redskins Park.

The video shows why the Redskins are excited by Doctson who in his season debut and only game, a week two loss to division rival the Dallas Cowboys, hauled in two passes for 66 yards with one being a 57 yarder.
Redskins fans and the team are anxious to see what Doctson can do when healthy.
With the team figuring out the contract status of the guy who would throw him the ball in quarterback Kirk Cousins, and the pending status of both Jackson, and Garcon, it is important for Doctson to come back healthy in 2017.
