–Just two teams got fewer snaps from their rookies than the Redskins did in 2016. CSN Mid-Atlantic looks at a few reasons why, including:
- 2016 first-rounder Josh Doctson (Achilles issue) didn’t play after Week 2, missing the season’s last 14 contests.
- Second-rounder Su’a Cravens missed five full games due to injury, while third-rounder Kendall Fuller was inactive for three and then was in and out of the secondary rotation, never really nailing down a consistent role.
- Fifth-rounder Matt Ioannidis also had trouble breaking through on defense, sixth-rounder Nate Sudfeld never left the bench, and seventh-rounders Steven Daniels and Keith Marshall didn’t even make it to the final roster after rough preseasons.
