Terry McLaurin among 3 rookies to start at WR vs....


The Washington Redskins are dealing with just as many injuries as the Philadelphia Eagles and both teams will look drastically different at wide receiver on Sunday.

Washington just finished their final practice in advance of Sunday’s huge matchup and according to Kyle Stackpole of the Redskins’ official website, the team will start three rookies at wide receiver against the Eagles secondary.

Terry McLaurin has been a starter from the beginning and the former Ohio State star has made a big splash with the Redskins.

McLaurin was selected with pick No. 76 out of Ohio State, and he’s racked up 46 catches for 703 yards and 6 touchdowns through Week 15.

In the season opener, McLaurin torched the Birds for 5 catches on 125 yards and a TD, including a 70-yard bomb. With Trey Quinn and Paul Richardson Jr. both out as well, Kelvin Harmon, a rookie wideout from North Carolina State will get the start.

Steven Sims Jr., a rookie wideout from Kansas will also get the start.

Last week, in a loss to the Green Bay Packers, rookie signal-caller, Dwayne Haskins, passed for 170 yards on 16-of-27 passing with a touchdown. McLaurin posted 57 yards on four catches with a touchdown.

Sims Jr. had four receptions for 40 yards, which is his career-high in yards, while the speedy Harmon hauled in a 30-yard reception and is averaging 14.8 yards per catch over the last four games (177 yards on 12 catches).

It should be a matchup that favors the Eagles veteran defense and secondary, but this season has been anything but easy or predictable.
