Washington lists QB Alex Smith as questionable, Terry McLaurin as doubtful for Week 16 vs. Panthers


The Washington Football Team may have their starting defender back on the field this week, but they may also be without their best offensive playmaker. Washington released its injury report on Friday and listed holder Alex Smith as questionable for Sunday’s Week 16 game with a calf injury, while Terry McLaurin was listed as doubtful with an ankle disease.

Smith was injured during Washington’s Week 14 victory over the San Francisco 49ers and was left out of last week’s loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Dwayne Haskins started in his place and would be in line to start if Smith were to leave again on Sunday, despite the fact that Haskins was seen in an exotic club without a mask, which was a clear violation of the COVID-19 protocols.

McLaurin played all games for Washington this season and accumulated 80 receptions for 1,078 yards and three touchdowns, apparently standing out regardless of which QB was at the center, whether Smith, Haskins or Kyle Allen. He lost two games due to an injury last season and apparently is in danger of losing this week’s competition as well.

The football team is currently in first place in the decrepit NFC East, despite a record of only 6-8, and being without Smith and / or McLaurin will obviously hurt their chances of maintaining their position in that position. The team’s regular season finale is against the Eagles, who surprisingly defeated in Week 1. Philadelphia faces Dallas this Sunday in a game that could determine whether one of the two NFC East clashes in Week 17 is actually a championship match. of the division.
