Over the course of the 2022 NFL season, the Washington Commanders saw their depth at the linebacker position tested as injuries set in.
Cole Holcomb was well on his way to having his best season before a foot injury ended it prematurely. Jamin Davis improved as the year progressed but wasn’t on the field when the team played Dallas to close out the season. Jon Bostic took the field after spending most of it as a backup until injury ended his year.
In the process, David Mayo saw a lot of field time. Enough field time that one has to stop and wonder why exactly none of the other linebackers on the roster saw snaps. That, mixed with a little bit of curiosity, led me to the next chapter in ‘Watchin’ Film With Film,’ which involves thoughts that surely tons of other Washington fans have already had. Why exactly was Week 18 against the Dallas Cowboys Khaleke Hudson’s first time on the field?
Is Khaleke Hudson Ready for More Playing Time?
After three years and little to no snaps, he was finally able to get a start. In that game against Dallas, Hudson recorded seven tackles and showed enough to ask the question, Is Khaleke Hudson Ready for More Playing Time?
Check out this week’s episode of Watchin’ Film w/Phil (above) to see the All-22 coaches film of Khaleke Hudson from the Week 18 Washington Commanders vs. Dallas Cowboys game.
