|Samuel parlayed a career-best season in 2020 into a lucrative free agent contract with the football team and a chance to reunite with the man who drafted him, Washington Football Team head coach Ron Rivera and his former OC Scott Turner.
The irony is Samuel had his best season with the Panthers under Matt Rhule, and it was Rhule who finally started using Samuel as a multi-dimensional threat as a runner and a receiver. Will Rivera and Turner learn from their past mistakes with Samuel and utilize him that way? Only time will tell. What we do know is Samuel will be the No.2 WR opposite of Terry McLaurin and should see at least 100 targets, making him a nice WR with upside to target later in drafts.
| Gibson, McLaurin, RSJ, Dyami all limited on Thursday|
Washington banged up at the skill positions

OT Sam Cosmi (ankle)
WR Curtis Samuel (groin)
RG Brandon Scherff (knee)
WR Cam Sims (hamstring)
RB Antonio Gibson (shin)
WR Terry McLaurin (hamstring)
TE Ricky Seals-Jones (quad)
WR Dyami Brown (knee)
CB William Jackson III (knee)
All others full (John Keim on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: We'll have to wait for official injury designations on Friday but it appears everyone that was limited on Thursday will likely play this week. Gibson has looked banged up last week but he'll be worthy of a start against the Packers as will McLaurin and RSJ.
| Curtis Samuel lands on IR, groin injury|
Will miss first three games

|Ron Rivera very clear that surgery not an option for Curtis Samuel. The issue is rest, and Samuel's time on the Covid list set back his recovery. Rivera is confident that a few more weeks of rest should get Samuel back on his feet (JP Finlay on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: The IR designation means that Samuel will miss at least the first three games of the season. He's battled a groin injury since early this summer and hasn't been right since. In his place, Dyami Brown and Adam Humphries out of the slot will see increased snaps.
| Curtis Samuel misses practice Thursday|

|No surprise: Curtis Samuel a DNP again today. (John Keim on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Samuel was working with the trainer today a day after he looked less than enthused at practice. It's safe to say that Samuel is trending in the wrong direction for being on the field in Week 1. He's battled a groin injury the entire off-season. If he doesn't play, it will mean more reps for Dyami Brown and Adam Humphries.
