Redskins put Maurice Harris on injured reserve

Maurice Harris

The Washington Redskins have officially placed wide receiver Maurice Harris on injured reserve ahead of the team’s Week 17 matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Harris has been in concussion protocol and did not play in the team’s 25-16 loss to the Tennessee Titans last week.

So, with only one game to go in the regular season, the team announced that Harris’ season was over due to the ongoing concussion issues.

Harris had 28 receptions for 304 yards this season, with his most notable performance coming in Week 9 against the Atlanta Falcons. He had 10 receptions on 12 targets for a whopping 124 yards in that game, which was easily his highest output of the year.

Of course, Harris’ injury is another in a long line of them for the Redskins this season, as Jay Gruden has rarely seen his team at full strength during the second half of the 2018 campaign.

With Washington now on its fourth starting quarterback of the season in Josh Johnson, it’s been difficult to find any sort of rhythm down the stretch.

The Redskins were officially eliminated from playoff contention after the Titans earned the comeback victory, and that leaves them with not much to play for this week against the Eagles.

However, Washington would certainly love to stop Philly’s hopes of returning to the playoffs, and that would happen if the Redskins are able to secure the win.

But either way, it figures to be an important offseason in the nation’s capital as the franchise looks to get everyone healthy so that it can return to the postseason.
