RICHMOND — Anyone who feared the worst after Josh Doctson spent most of Sunday’s practice in the Redskins medical tent, then walked off slowly, can exhale a bit.

Doctson had an MRI which revealed a slight hamstring pull in his right leg, coach Jay Gruden said Monday afternoon. Doctson is day-to-day. 

While the injury makes it highly unlikely that Doctson plays Thursday in the preseason opener against the Ravens, the news could have been much worse for the Redskins. The first preseason game doesn’t matter and Doctson probably wouldn’t have played much in it anyway. The second-year wide receiver has been having an excellent training camp, and Washington just wants him healthy for Week 1. 

Doctson missed nearly all of his rookie season because of persistent problems with both his Achilles’ tendons that wouldn’t go away but were never officially diagnosed. Gruden said there was no concern that a new injury could make those problems return.
