Is Doctson in danger of being cut by Redskins?

The Washington Redskins play their final preseason game Thursday night against the Baltimore Ravens at FedEx Field and former first-round draft pick Josh Doctson won't be playing. 

Does that mean the wide receiver will definitely make the team? Or could it mean his fate has already been decided? 

106.7 The Fan's Redskins beat reporter Craig Hoffman said he thinks Doctson will remain on the roster before Saturday's cutdown day while chatting with The Sports Junkies Thursday morning. 

"Josh is still so supremely talented that he is better than Robert Davis. He is better than Steven Sims. I think depending upon who you ask, he is better than Cam Sims," Hoffman said. "I don't want to sound like I'm defending Doctson as some awesome player or that he a hundred percent should make this roster, but I think that he probably should."

Hoffman added quarterback Case Keenum seems to trust Doctson more than Redskins quarterbacks have in the past and that could be the difference in deciding whether the Skins keep him.

Doctson has long been the center of trade speculation, with reports indicating Washington is still attempting to offload the 22nd overall pick from the 2016 NFL Draft.
