Ryan Grant (concussion) is questionable for Week 11 against the Saints.
Grant remains in the concusion protocol despite getting in some practice this week. His status is up in the air for Sunday. With Terrelle Pryor sidelined and Brian Quick also questionable, the Redskins could be down to Josh Doctson, Jamison Crowder, and Maurice Harris as their only healthy wideouts. Nov 17 - 6:31 PM

Date:

Redskins WR Ryan Grant is out for the remainder of Sunday's Week 10 game with a concussion.

Grant took a hit to the upper body from Linval Joseph on his third reception of the opening quarter that sent him to the locker room where he was diagnosed with a concussion.
Nov 12 - 1:50 PM

Ryan Grant caught 5-of-8 targets for 38 yards in the Redskins' Week 8 loss to the Cowboys.

Grant's 38 yards were his third most of the season, though 25 of them came on one catch. The Redskins have been shuffling up their receiver corps, but Grant's usage has remained more or less the same. He's not an appealing fantasy option.
Oct 29 - 8:10 PM

Ryan Grant caught all three of his targets for 19 yards in the Redskins' Week 7 loss to the Eagles.

Grant has been held to three catches or less in every game since Week 1. It goes without saying, but Grant doesn't belong on 10- or 12-team rosters.
Oct 24 - 12:40 AM

Ryan Grant hauled in 2-of-3 targets for 16 yards and a touchdown in the Redskins' Week 4 loss to the Chiefs.

Grant out-snapped Josh Doctson, which is surprising after Doctson had more in Week 3. Grant is still unstartable and not worth picking up in most leagues.
Oct 3 - 1:12 AM

Ryan Grant caught 3-of-4 passes for 31 yards in Week 3 against the Raiders.

Grant took a step back after a solid first two weeks. He played fewer snaps than Josh Doctson, who caught a 52-yard touchdown. Grant is trending down going into Week 4.
Sep 25 - 12:20 AM

Ryan Grant snared one-of-two targets for 11 yards Sunday in the Redskins' Week 2 win over the Rams.

He saved his best (and only) catch for last, hauling in the go-ahead touchdown from Kirk Cousins with 1:49 remaining. Grant drew six targets last week while Jamison Crowder was hampered by a hip injury but obviously didn't play as large a role with Crowder closer to full strength this week. He's best left on the waiver wire.
Sep 17 - 9:25 PM

Ryan Grant caught 4-of-6 targets for 61 yards in the Redskins' Week 1 loss to the Eagles.

With Jamison Crowder battling a hip issue and Josh Doctson not ready to contribute, Grant worked as the No. 2 receiver at times. He's a clear favorite of coach Jay Gruden and the staff. Grant's big gain of 34 yards came on a nice screen play. Grant is more of a WR6 who doesn't have much upside.
Sep 10 - 5:38 PM

Ryan Grant will take over as the Redskins' slot receiver if Jamison Crowder (hip) can't play in Week 1.

In this scenario, Terrelle Pryor and Josh Doctson would be Washington's top perimeter wideouts with Grant inside. The slot role can be highly productive in the Redskins' offense, but Grant has caught just 39 passes across 48 career games.

Sep 8 - 1:58 PM

Ryan Grant caught 2-of-4 targets for seven yards in the Redskins' second preseason game.

The stat line is not notable, but it is newsworthy Grant got the start even with Josh Doctson healthy -- the sophomore did not see a target until the end of the first half. Doctson should eventually jump into the starting lineup, but it may not happen before Week 1.
Aug 19 - 9:39 PM

Redskins WRs coach Ike Hilliard continued to talk up fourth-year WR Ryan Grant at the start of training camp.

The Redskins had a rift over Grant when Scot McCloughan was still GM; McCloughan preferred speedier, more athletic Rashad Ross, while Grant was a coaches' pet and remains so. "I'm easily Ryan Grant's biggest fan," said Hilliard. "He's always been our best pure route runner out of everyone, even with Pierre (Garcon) and DJax (DeSean Jackson) here." Grant worked ahead of first-round pick Josh Doctson throughout Redskins OTAs and minicamp.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Ryan Grant is the team's "most consistent" wide receiver.

"Without a doubt, as a far as being able to line up everywhere, run the routes exactly how we want them at the right depth coming out of them," Gruden continued. "Hopefully he’ll get more opportunities." Grant worked with the first-team during the offseason program ahead of 2016 first-rounder Josh Doctson, and this helps explain why. That said, Gruden had similarly great things to say about Grant at this time last year before the receiver saw just 19 targets. Doctson remains the favorite to win the No. 3 job.
Jun 19 - 10:06 AM

Redskins WR Ryan Grant caught nine passes for 76 yards in 2016.

Grant was active for all 16 games, but couldn't carve out a role on offense. Even with DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon headed for free agency, Grant is unlikely to be ticketed for a bigger role in 2017.
Jan 1 - 8:25 PM

Coach Jay Gruden said third-year WR Ryan Grant has had a "great camp" at OTAs.

Gruden noted Grant's crazy work ethic and precise route-running chops. With Josh Doctson (foot) and DeSean Jackson (voluntary) sitting out practices, Grant has been getting increased reps with the first- and second-team offenses. He's expected to open the season as Washington's No. 5 receiver.

ESPN believes Ryan Grant will open the year as the team's No. 5 receiver.

That puts him behind DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon, rookie Josh Doctson and Jamison Crowder. That doesn't even include tight end Jordan Reed, who led the team in receptions, yards and touchdowns last season. Slow and not particularly big, Grant has no role on the Redskins and may even be on the roster bubble.
