Jamison Crowder to get another MRI on ankle
ASHBURN, Va. After Jamison Crowder missed his fifth straight game Sunday, Washington Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Monday the wideout would receive another MRI on his ankle.
Crowder first suffered the injury in a Week 5 loss to the New Orleans Saints. He has not played since, but he returned to practice in a limited fashion last week.
The Redskins ruled Crowder out Saturday, a day ahead of the team’s 16-3 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
“He’s not quite 100 percent coming in and out of his cuts right now,” Gruden said. “I dont think he’s totally comfortable with it but hopefully by Thursday he has a chance.”
Gruden said if Crowder can practice Wednesday and Thursday, there will be a “good chance” he’ll play next Sunday against the Houston Texans.
Crowder has 13 catches for 134 yards and a touchdown this season.
