Josh Doctson unsurprisingly popped up on the Redskins' Week 5 injury report, the wide receiver listed as questionable heading into Monday night's clash with the Saints.

According to Jay Gruden, Doctson "got kicked in the heel" last Monday, and hasn't practiced since. In fact, the former first-round pick was placed in a walking boot due to the injury.

Doctson has had serious lower leg issues in the past, missing the majority of his rookie season in 2016 due to an Achilles issue. His production so far this season has been lackluster, catching a total of five passes for 48 yards on 13 targets. 

Trent Williams was also listed as questionable with a knee injury, but he should be ok to go after being a full participant in practice Saturday. Troy Apke and Shawn Lauvao will miss out with hamstring and calf injuries, respectively. 

As for New Orleans, Drew Brees will be without wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr., Ginn ruled out with a knee injury. The veteran wideout has caught 12 passes for 135 yards and two touchdowns this year. 

Linebacker Manti Te'o, center Cameron Tom and defensive end Trey Hendrickson are all listed as questionable.
