    ASHBURN, Va. -- The Washington Redskins are shutting down wide receiver Josh Doctson for a few weeks because of a lingering Achilles tendon injury.Coach Jay Gruden said the first-round pick wont practice this week and added that its safe to expect the Redskins to rest Doctson through the upcoming bye week. Washington plays at Detroit and then against Cincinnati in London before its bye week in early November.Doctson, the 22nd pick out of TCU, has been bothered by the sore left Achilles tendon since rookie minicamp in May. After being off the field for training camp, he played in the first two regular-season games and had two catches for 66 yards.Gruden says putting Doctson on injured reserve remains a possibility.I think well send him to another doctor, get another opinion, Gruden said Monday. I think the plan right now is to probably immobilize him for a little bit, just to take completely the stress off of it for a little bit of time and then see where that leads us.The Redskins picked Doctson hoping hed be a piece of their offense right away and potentially step into a bigger role in 2017 if either Pierre Garcon or DeSean Jackson or both leave via free agency. Instead, its looking like a lost season for Doctson.Im frustrated for him, Gruden said. I feel bad for him. He wants to play in the worst way. This is the most unique injury that people have seen. Cant put a finger on why hes having pain, but hes having pain. And he wants to play. And hes not the same guy when you cant push off because your Achilles is bothering you.---AP NFL website: and Mike Modano Stars Jersey . PETERSBURG, Fla. Radek Faksa Stars Jersey .

Dallas Stars Jerseys . - Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is not a fan of his teams use of the wildcat formation, saying "it makes you look like a high school offence. PROVO, Utah -- The last 10 months have been trying for Taysom Hill.The senior BYU quarterback suffered a season-ending foot injury in the 2015 opener that took much longer to heal than he hoped. There was a decision to be made about where to play his final year after coach Bronco Mendenhall took the Virginia job. Then Hills brother, Dexter, passed away in the spring.I look up to my brother so much, said Hill, who will wear No. 7 to honor his brother in 2016. A lot of my competitiveness and motivation to play college football and excel in football came from him. I had this struggle of, what do I do to make sure my brother is still part of everything that I do? As I was driving up to his funeral, it hit me. Im going to wear his number.Now Hill is anxiously awaiting a return to the football field so he can stop repeatedly addressing the same questions. He spoke to reporters Thursday at the teams football media day and started the session by reeling off answers to the inevitable questions.- Yes, hes recovered from the foot injury and has no limitations.- Yes, having Heisman winner Ty Detmer as the new offensive coordinator is great and there are no concerns about his new pro-style offense.- No, there isnt any beef with fellow quarterback Tanner Mangum as they compete for the starting job.Hill and his situation are the biggest question marks for the team this season considering the first four years of his career. Three of those have culminated in season-ending injuries, but 2013 saw him throw for 2,938 yards and rush for 1,344 with 29 combined touchdowns and a lot of Heisman hype.Hill was awarded an extra year of eligibility with a medical exception and decided to return to BYU after getting to know new coach Kalani Sitake and Detmer, adding, Im a BYU guy. But while he was out, Mangum set school freshman records with 3,377 passing yards and 23 touchdowns.Hill certainly didnt return to sit, but is no lock to win the job.When it comes to competition, the competition is with yourself, Hill said. Tanners a great kid and good football player, so it motivates you to work hard and all that.ddddddddddddBut ultimately at the end of the day, Im trying to be as good as I possibly can.Detmer and Sitake said they wont wait until the first game to make the decision on a starting quarterback but will give Hill and Mangum ample opportunities to make their case for the job during fall camp.The two are good friends and Mangum insists its not a Team Taysom or Team Tanner situation.Competition brings the best out of everyone, Mangum said. Were obviously in a unique position with two quarterbacks that have experience, but thats a good problem to have. He and I push each other knowing every play youve got to bring your best effort. Youve got to bring your A game every day. Its a healthy completion. Its not divisive. Its not negative.Hill was still limited in spring practices, so he hasnt seen full action in the new scheme. Hell be under center more and running less, but Detmer has no plans to confine him to the pocket.Hill said hes a quarterback first and would prefer throwing touchdowns, but when the games on the line, hes going to do what it takes to win the football game regardless of worries about staying healthy.Hill said hes tested the foot enough to know its fully healed and even ripped off a dunk upon request at a recent fan event.Its the old, `If someone told you to jump off a bridge sort of deal, Sitake joked. It was a good teaching moment. Were going to have to teach him to slide and step out of bounds once in a while. It wasnt the nicest dunk Ive ever seen, but it was good to see his bodys healing up.Detmer has no plans to use a two-quarterback system and thinks it keeps either from finding a rhythm. And there will be no quick hook for whoever wins the job.If we believe one of thems the guy ... hes going to get every opportunity to play and grow in the offense, Detmer said. ' ' '
