Commanders' Rookie Wide Receiver Returns to Practice

The Washington Commanders may finally see this year's first-round pick back in action for Week 10's Monday Night Football NFC East showdown with the Philadelphia Eagles. Wide receiver Jahan Dotson returned to practice Friday.
Dotson has been out since Week 4's 25-10 loss to the Dallas Cowboys due to a hamstring injury. He had hauled in 12 receptions for 152 yards over his first four appearances with the team.

Dotson's return should provide a boost for a surprisingly competitive 4-5 Commanders team. If available Monday, he'll provide a solid third option behind wide receivers Curtis Samuel and Terry McLaurin for quarterback Taylor Heinicke. The Commanders will need all the help they can get against the undefeated Eagles.

Dotson joined the Commanders earlier this season as their 16th overall pick in this year's draft after a solid four-year career at Penn State. He totalled 183 receptions for 2757 receiving yards over his 42 appearances with the Nittany Lions.
