Redskins GM Punched a Wall & Injured Hand After Learning of Doctson’s Injury
Washington Redskins Scot McCloughan was sporting a wrap around his hand on Friday during training camp and it had everybody wondering what exactly happened to him.
According to former Redskins tight end Chris Cooley, it involved the news of wide receiver Josh Docton’s recent injury as he explained on ESPN radio.
“On ESPN 980, former player Chris Cooley shared the story of what happened, which involved a team doctor calling McCloughan to share injury news about receiver Josh Doctson, a first-round draft pick.
“I said, ‘What happened to your hand?'” Cooley recalled on the radio. “He said, when I found out about Doctson – which they thought was going to be much worse, the Doctson injury, apparently it isn’t going to be as bad – I punched the wall.”
Cooley then shared his appreciation for the story.
“I just thought, ‘I love you. I freaking love you, man,'” Cooley said. “Everything he does. He cares so much about his guys, his players. It upset him.”
Doctson was flattered, and a little shocked, to learn of the incident.
“I thought he was playing around, but he was being for real,” Doctson said. “You know, it’s just what they believe I can do. They trust me.”
After Friday’s walk-through, McCloughan laughed & pointed at Josh Doctson, and jokingly said “it’s this guy’s fault.”
