McLaurin caught three of six targets for 40 yards in Sunday's 56-14 loss to Dallas.
EDGE Analysis
McLaurin -- like many Washington position players -- fell victim to the one-sided affair. The 26-year-old was tied for the team lead in targets, signaling that he is still the top dog in the Football Team's wideout rotation. McLaurin's solid fantasy season has come to a screeching halt of late, as he has failed to top 51 yards or score a touchdown over the last five games. The talented receiver is clearly being limited by Washington's recent poor quarterback play, and there is no guarantee that his situation will improve ahead of next week's tilt against Philadelphia after this horrible overall performance by the offense.

McLaurin brought in two of four targets for 51 yards in Washington's 27-17 loss to the Eagles on Tuesday night.
EDGE Analysis
McLaurin's receiving yardage tally, modest as it was, paced Washington on the night, although nearly all of it came on a 46-yard grab. The speedster's fantasy outlook was naturally dampened by the fact the Football Team was forced to go with Garrett Gilbert at quarterback in the absence of both Taylor Heinicke and Kyle Allen due to COVID-19 protocols. McLaurin's 51 yards also represent his high-water mark over the last four games, sending him into a Week 16 road matchup against the Cowboys in a near-month-long funk.

McLaurin (concussion) doesn't carry an injury designation ahead of Tuesday's game against the Eagles.
EDGE Analysis
McLaurin fully participated in each of Washington's three practice sessions this week, and he'll be able to suit up against the Eagles on Tuesday. The 2019 third-rounder has been held in check across the last three games, as he's hauled in seven of 15 targets for 73 yards during that time.

McLaurin was a full participant in practice Sunday for the second day in a row, but Washington has yet to officially reveal whether he cleared the five-step concussion protocol, Pete Hailey of NBC Sports Washington reports.
EDGE Analysis
McLaurin may still need to pass the final step of the protocol -- gaining clearance from an independent neurologist -- before Washington confirms he'll be ready to play Tuesday against the Eagles, after the game was pushed back from Sunday due to the Football Team's COVID-19 outbreak. The consecutive full practices are a promising sign McLaurin will be good to go for the Week 15 contest, but his availability won't be known until Washington releases its final injury report later Sunday. If McLaurin suits up, he may be drawing targets from backup quarterback Kyle Allen (illness), who is likelier bet than normal starter Taylor Heinicke (illness) to return from the reserve/COVID-19 list before Tuesday. If neither Heinicke nor Allen is cleared, however, Washington would turn to practice-squad member Kyle Shurmur or the newly signed Garrett Gilbert to make a spot start at quarterback.

McLaurin (concussion) practiced fully Saturday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.
EDGE Analysis
After suffering a concussion last Sunday against the Cowboys, McLaurin didn't practice Wednesday and then logged back-to-back limited sessions Thursday and Friday. By bumping up to all activity Saturday, he's reached the final stage on his quest through the protocol for head injuries. With two days to receive clearance from an independent neurologist, McLaurin has a decent shot to suit up Tuesday versus the Eagles. Who may be throwing him passes is up in the air, though, with both Taylor Heinicke (illness) and Kyle Allen (illness) on the reserve/COVID-19 list. If neither player is activated, McLaurin likely will be operating with Garrett Gilbert.

McLaurin (concussion) and Washington will no longer play the Eagles on Sunday, after the NFL officially rescheduled the matchup between the two teams for Tuesday at 7 p.m. ET.
EDGE Analysis
Due to ongoing COVID-19-related issues within Washington's organization, the NFL is hopeful that by delaying the game two days, the Football Team will restore enough players from the reserve/COVID-19 list to alleviate depth concerns on the roster. Assuming the game is held Tuesday as expected, McLaurin should be in good shape to play after he made notable progress in his recovery from the concussion by practicing in a limited capacity Thursday and Friday. Per Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post, head coach Ron Rivera said Friday that he's very optimistic McLaurin will exit the five-step concussion protocol before Tuesday's game, with the wideout's availability ultimately hinging on him getting clearance from an independent neurologist. Even if McLaurin suits up Tuesday, he may have to work with an unfamiliar quarterback, as the top two options on the depth chart -- starter Taylor Heinicke and top backup Kyle Allen -- tested positive for COVID-19 over the past few days, leaving the availability of both signal-callers in flux for Week 15.

Coach Ron Rivera said Friday that he has a "very high" level of optimism that McLaurin (concussion) will play in Sunday's game against the Eagles, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Postreports.
EDGE Analysis
J.D. McKissic (concussion), on the other hand, sounds truly questionable, while McLaurin apparently is on track to clear concussion protocol before Sunday's game. It'll be a less-than-ideal setup for receiving production, with Garrett Gilbert plucked off New England's practice squad for a potential Week 15 start after Washington QBs Taylor Heinicke and Garrett Gilbert were placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Washington listed McLaurin (concussion) as a limited participant in Thursday's practice, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
While the Washington roster continues to be ravaged by COVID-19-related absences, McLaurin's ability to upgrade from no participation in Wednesday's practice to limited activity Thursday qualifies as some rare good news. McLaurin will still need to receive clearance to take contact and will also need to get the green light from an independent neurologist in order to suit up Sunday in Philadelphia, but the wideout looks to be trending in a positive direction.

McLaurin (concussion) took part in individual drills at Thursday's practice, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
One day removed from working with team trainers on a side field, McLaurin appears to have cleared another hurdle in his quest through the protocol for head injuries. However, how much work he was able to handle won't be known until Washington posts its second Week 15 injury report later Thursday.

McLaurin (concussion) didn't practice Wednesday, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
On a positive note, McLaurin worked on the side with team trainers just three days removed from entering the concussion protocol, according to JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington. McLaurin will have two more opportunities to mix into drills this week, which he'll have to do in at least a limited capacity Thursday or Friday to give himself a chance to play Sunday at Philadelphia.
