Washington Redskins tight end Vernon Davis (concussion) and wide receiver Maurice Harris (concussion) have been ruled out for Week 16 against the Titans on Saturday after initially being questionable. It further weakens an already extremely thin offense that is using Josh Johnson as the starting quarterback. With both Davis and Jordan Reed (toe) out, Jeremy Sprinkle will be the starter. He scored a touchdown last week but will be a desperation streamer. Jamison Crowder is the team's top wideout, but Jehu Chesson, Michael Floyd and rookie Darvin Kidsy may be asked to step up with Josh Doctson questionable. Stay far away from this situation if you can.
Washington Redskins wide receiver Maurice Harris surprisingly leads all his teammates at the position in receptions and receiving yards despite not catching a single pass until Week 5. That is more an indictment against said teammates than it is a reason to celebrate Harris, but somebody has to catch the ball occasionally for the Redskins, and Harris is just one week removed from a relatively impressive two-game stretch. In Weeks 9 and 10, Harris hauled in 15 of 17 targets for 176 yards. Perhaps those numbers are an anomaly, but they are also the most recent example of reliability from the wideout position in Washington. New quarterback Colt McCoy may seek to develop a connection with Harris as a result.
Washington Redskins wide receiver Maurice Harris caught one pass on four targets for 13 yards in Sunday's loss to Houston. Before writing him off altogether, though, consider this: in the two games prior, Harris had 15 receptions for 176 yards. Washington's receiving corps has been so unimpressive that they didn't need any help becoming more of a collective unknown quantity, but Alex Smith's season-ending injury makes it even more difficult to know what to expect. With that in mind, however, a look back at recent performances might lead new starter Colt McCoy to target Harris over some of the other options. In any case, this whole group of wideouts is in "see how it plays out" mode for the moment.
