The Vikings placed Doctson (leg) on injured reserve Thursday, Arif Hasan of The Athletic reports.
Doctson is reportedly a candidate to return later in the season, though his placement on IR rules him out until Week 10 at the earliest. Chad Beebe and Bisi Johnson will provide the Vikings with receiver depth behind Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs in the meantime, and the team is a strong candidate to add at least one wideout to the roster in short order.
Doctson is reportedly headed for IR due to a leg injury, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Per the report, Doctson could be a candidate to return later this season, but for now Chad Beebe and Bisi Johnson will provide the Vikings with wideout depth behind Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs. Additionally, the team figures to bolster the position in short order.
Doctson (hamstring) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.
Doctson was inactive Week 1 due to a coach's decision and is now managing a hamstring injury. The 2016 first-round pick is working to climb Minnesota's depth chart and earn a role behind Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs. His chances of suiting up versus the Packers on Sunday are unclear.
Doctson (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Falcons.
Doctson could push out Chad Beebe or Bisi Johnson for the No. 3 or 4 spot on the depth chart as he becomes more acclimated with the Vikings' offense, but the Redskins castoff will be on the sideline for Week 1. Even if Doctson ascends in the Vikings' wideout pecking order, it's unlikely he'll carve out a large enough target share behind Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs to gain mainstream fantasy relevance.
