Redskins safety Reed Doughty suffers broken hand
Washington Redskins safety Reed Doughty has suffered a broken bone in his hand but plans to participate in the remainder of the team’s offseason program.
The veteran, who was a restricted free agent this offseason, has been outfitted with a cast for his right hand, according to Jason Reid of the Washington Post.
“I’ll be fine,” Doughty told Reed.
Doughty has reportedly taken to the team’s new 3-4 defensive scheme quickly and could be in the mix for a starting job in the secondary. He was also valued by the previous coaching staff. The Redskins will host their final minicamp later this month.
In an unrelated development, defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth’s hands remain fine but he is not participating in the offseason program.
