ASHBURN — The Redskins might need to make a move at wide receiver.
Wideouts Trey Quinn and Cam Sims each suffered a high-ankle sprain Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals and are awaiting final test results to see if surgery is needed, coach Jay Gruden said Monday.
Quinn and Sims had impressed the coaching staff and made the Redskins’ final 53-man roster as longshot rookies. Quinn, this year’s Mr. Irrelevant, was the team’s fourth receiver and punt returner, while Sims, an undrafted free agent out of Alabama, had a strong camp and contributed on special teams.
Gruden said the Redskins needed to know more before determining how long the two would be out. But right now, Washington only has three healthy receivers — Josh Doctson, Paul Richardson and Jamison Crowder.
Wideout Maurice Harris also missed Week 1 with a concussion, an injury that could cause him to miss extended time as well.
If the Redskins need to make a roster move, they have their options at the position. Washington has two wideouts — Darvin Kidsy and Simmie Cobbs Jr. — on the practice squad, and veteran Brian Quick, who was cut in September, remains unsigned after spending the last two seasons with the Redskins.
The biggest name available on the market, of course, is Dez Bryant, who suggested Sunday on Twitter he would like to play for the Redskins.
