The Washington Commanders offered an unfortunate update on a key player before their Week 1 game against the Arizona Cardinals. The Commanders have a couple of wide receivers battling injury before the regular season starts.
The Washington Commanders place Dax Milne on IR
The Commanders hope Terry McLaurin will be able to play Sunday after he sustained a pre-season turf toe injury. But they’ll for sure be without their versatile 2021 seventh-round pick, Dax Milne. According to Aaron Wilson with KPRC, the Commanders had to place Milne on injured reserve for a groin injury.
They also signed defensive end William Bradley-King to the 53-man roster.

Milne is a huge loss for the Commanders in the early season. He’s used as both a kick and punt returner. Milne is listed as the Commanders’ first option as a punt returner.
He’ll be out for at least the first four weeks of the season. The Commanders have 2022 first-round pick Jahan Dotson listed as their backup punt returner.
