Fantasy managers had a scare in the final preseason game of Week 2 on Monday night, seeing Terry McLaurin go down with a toe injury and not return.
The injury doesn’t appear to be that serious, but turf toe can be finicky if it’s not rested properly. That being said, NFL Network’s Ian Rapaport did state that there’s “optimism” for McLaurin to be ready by the time Week 1 rolls around.
However, until then, we can expect McLaurin to miss the final week of the preseason and potentially most of the practices leading up to the Commanders' season debut against the Cardinals. The largest beneficiary if he would miss any time is clearly Jahan Dotson, who was hyper-targeted by QB Sam Howell in McLaurin’s absence on Monday night.
