McLaurin (ankle) reeled in seven of eight targets for 40 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 20-14 win over the Eagles. He finishes the regular season with 87 receptions, 1,118 yards and four touchdowns in 15 games.
EDGE Analysis
McLaurin toughed it out to return quickly from a high-ankle sprain -- which typically requires 4-to-6 weeks to fully recover from -- and help Alex Smith and Co. push the 7-9 Washington Football Team into the playoffs. The talented wideout dealt with mediocre quarterback play for the entirety of the season, as an aging Smith, whose leg is literally being held together by bolts and screws, was the team's best option under center. The fact that McLaurin managed to eclipse the 1,000-yard mark is a testament to the wideout's talent. Washington may be able to scratch out another year with Smith managing games, but an upgrade at the position would benefit the team and McLaurin's fantasy stock immensely if and when that happens. For now, he will try and help upset Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Saturday in the first round of the playoffs.

McLaurin (ankle) is listed as active Sunday at Philadelphia, Kyle Stackpole of Washington's official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
Amazingly, McLaurin will miss just one game as a result of a high-ankle sprain. It remains to be seen whether he'll be a diversion or actually modestly involved in the offense, but with a variety of signal-callers this season, he's averaged nine targets per game. In this contest, McLaurin will be on the receiving end of passes from Alex Smith, who himself is attempting to gut it out through a strained right calf.

McLaurin (ankle), who is listed as questionable, plans to play in Sunday's game against the Eagles, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.
EDGE Analysis
McLaurin sat out last week's loss to the Panthers due to a high-ankle sprain, which typically takes around six weeks to recover from. He was unable to practice this week, although McLaurin did work on the side and received praise from coach Ron Rivera. With a must-win game on tap, it sounds like McLaurin will give it a go. However, Jhabvala reiterated that McLaurin likely will be playing through some degree of pain and may even be limited to an extent if he is ultimately active.

McLaurin (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
McLaurin was listed as a non-participant in every practice this week, but head coach Rivera said the wideout looked good Thursday when he was doing rehab work with the training staff. Washington heads into Sunday's game with all of McLaurin, quarterback Alex Smith (calf) and running back Antonio Gibson (toe) listed as questionable, making it difficult to project what the offense will look like in the team's most important game of the season. With McLaurin and Smith both out last week, the target leaders were tight end Logan Thomas (12), running back J.D. McKissic (10), wide receiver Cam Sims (nine) and wide receiver Steven Sims (six).

McLaurin (ankle) isn't practicing Friday, Sam Fortier of The Washington Post reports.
EDGE Analysis
Washington head coach Ron Rivera said McLaurin looked good while working with the training staff Thursday, but that doesn't necessarily mean the wideout will be ready to go ahead of Sunday's 8:20 p.m. ET kickoff. McLaurin is absent from practice for a third straight day, making it two weeks in a row with no participation. He wasn't able to play in the loss to Carolina last week, and he'll presumably have a designation when Washington releases its final Week 17 injury report later Friday.

Coach Ron Rivera said Thursday that McLaurin, who hasn't practiced this week due to a high-ankle sprain, "looked good" and "moved around" Thursday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports. "It was a positive step," Rivera added. "We'll see how he feels tomorrow."
EDGE Analysis
During the open part of practice, McLaurin put in some time with Washington's training staff on the side, per John Keim of ESPN.com. Despite this and Rivera's comments, McLaurin has yet to make a noticeable step in his recovery from an injury that typically sidelines a player for multiple games. Still, Rivera seems to be holding out hope McLaurin will make a leap and put himself into a position to play Sunday in Philadelphia, a game that has postseason implications.

McLaurin (ankle) was a non-participant at Thursday's practice, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.
EDGE Analysis
According to John Keim of ESPN.com, McLaurin worked out on the side Thursday, which was more activity than running back Antonio Gibson managed on his turf toe injury. Still, Gibson's situation is one of managing his health concern, while McLaurin is working his way back from a high-ankle sprain, which typically sidelines a player for multiple weeks. McLaurin has missed just one game as a result of the issue, and his lack of reps so far this week doesn't represent a great sign that he'll be available Sunday at Philadelphia, either.

McLaurin (ankle) was working off to the side with trainers during Thursday's practice, signaling that he'll go down as a non-participant on Washington's official report, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Though head coach Ron Rivera hasn't closed the door on McLaurin suiting up Sunday against the Eagles, the wideout is probably closer to doubtful than questionable for the contest at this point after he was unable to practice with the main group Wednesday and Thursday while managing the high-ankle sprain. If McLaurin's ankle responds well to rehab work Thursday, he could be cleared to get in some practice reps Friday, but at the very least, he'll carry an injury designation into the regular-season finale. Cam Sims, Steven Sims and Antonio Gandy-Golden would likely serve as Washington's starting receivers this weekend if McLaurin misses a second straight contest.

McLaurin (ankle) was listed as a non-participant on Wednesday's practice report, Kyle Stackpole of Washington's official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
During the media-access portion of the session, McLaurin was spotted doing some work with the training staff on a side field while his healthy teammates were practicing. The Washington rehab group has been extensive recently, with Wednesday's list of non-participants including three other starters on offense in quarterback Alex Smith (calf), running back Antonio Gibson (toe) and left guard Wes Schweitzer (hip). McLaurin has been dealing with some form of ankle injury since late November, but his current problem -- a high-ankle sprain -- reportedly happened in the Week 15 loss to Seattle. After sitting out Week 16, the star wideout appears in danger of missing the regular-season finale Sunday against the Eagles.

McLaurin (ankle) worked out on a side field with trainers during Wednesday's practice, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.
EDGE Analysis
Head coach Ron Rivera relayed Monday that McLaurin suffered a high-ankle sprain Week 15 against the Seahawks and hasn't been able to get back on the field in the meantime. Rivera also noted that he wanted to hold practice outdoors this week to allow McLaurin to fit in some jogging, per Sam Fortier of The Washington Post. Because of the nature of the injury, McLaurin may be hard-pressed to make an appearance Sunday in Philadelphia, but with a playoff berth on the line, he'll at least attempt to do everything in his power to be available.
