ESPN Redskins reporter John Keim projects Jamison Crowder as a starter ahead of first-rounder Josh Doctson.

The Redskins have spent the offseason raving about their second-year slot man, leaving another obstacle for Doctson to hurdle as he hunts for rookie year snaps. We still wouldn’t be surprised if Doctson eventually nudged by Crowder, or even Pierre Garcon, in three-receiver sets, but these aren’t artificial hoops. Doctson should be viewed more as a Dynasty league stash than immediate re-draft contributor in fantasy leagues.

Redskins TE Derek Carrier (knee) could open the season on reserve/PUP.

Carrier is seven months removed from tearing his ACL. He isn’t going to be rushed back with Niles Paul and Logan Paulsen returning. Carrier will compete for a backup role when healthy.

Redskins OLB Junior Galette has suffered another torn Achilles’ tendon, and is done for the season.

Galette’s second year as a Redskin will end the same as his first: With zero snaps. Per PFT, Galette tore his right Achilles’. It was Galette’s left Achilles’ that cost him all of 2015. Headed into what would have been his age-28 season, Galette’s career is now in serious doubt. It’s an on-paper blow for the Redskins’ thin pass rush, but realistically DC Joe Barry should never have been counting heavily on Galette considering his off-field and injury histories.

Redskins waived/failed physical DB Kyshoen Jarrett.

Unless he is released with an injury settlement later, Jarrett will likely spend 2016 on the Redskins’ injured reserve list. A sixth-round steal out of Virginia Tech last year, Jarrett shined as a hybrid safety-slot corner before suffering from nerve damage in his shoulder and neck. He was reported to have lost 30 pounds in April. There is fear Jarrett’s career is in danger.

ESPN Redskins reporter John Keim does not view seventh-round pick Keith Marshall as a threat to Matt Jones’ workload this season.

A size-speed specimen who spent most of his college career injured, Marshall went back on the shelf this spring after running behind someone named “Mack Brown” at rookie camp. Marshall is talented enough to make up ground quickly in August, but he hasn’t given any reason to buy into him as an NFL player just yet.
