Milne (groin) was spotted working out during the Commanders' mandatory minicamp session Thursday, Zach Selby of the team's official site reports.

Milne missed all of Washington's 2023 campaign due to a groin injury sustained in late August of last year, but it now seems as if he's moved past the issue. The BYU product was the Commanders' primary return man the last time he was on the field (2022), tallying 311 punt return yards and 300 kick return yards in 15 games. Now that he's returned to form, expect Milne to compete for another special teams role as the offseason continues.

Lands on IR

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-08

The Commanders placed Milne (groin) on injured reserve Friday, Zach Selby of the team's official site reports.

Milne continues to deal with a groin injury sustained during the preseason. He will have to miss at least Washington's first four games of the season before being eligible for a return designation. The 2021 seventh-round pick has yet to rack up 100 receiving yards in a single year.

Doesn't practice Wednesday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-06

Milne (groin) did not practice Wednesday ahead of Sunday's game versus Arizona.

Milne has been dealing with a groin injury for nearly two weeks now, and his status for Week 1 appears to be in jeopardy at this point. If he were forced to sit out, one of Antonio Gibson, Byron Pringle or Jahan Dotson would likely take over punt return duties.

Still dealing with injury

Milne (groin) is not practicing Thursday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

Milne has been battling the injury for over a week now and it's not clear how much more time he may miss, or if his status for Week 1 against the Cardinals is in doubt. The BYU product is currently No. 5 on the team's positional depth chart at wide receiver, so his potential absence wouldn't likely have any impact on fantasy rosters.

Dealing with injury

Milne suffered a groin injury and is being monitored this week, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.

It's not clear if the injury is keeping Milne off the practice field or when it occurred. However, according to head coach Ron Rivera, the injury wouldn't impact the team's final 53-man roster. Considering Milne is likely inside the bubble at the moment, that should be good news for the BYU product.

No catches since November

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-01-16

Milne finished the 2022 season with six catches for 37 yards, 40 punt returns for 311 yards and 15 kickoff returns for 300 yards.

The 2021 seventh-round pick had a long return of 19 yards for punts and 33 yards for kickoffs, but the Commanders might be okay with the lack of explosiveness given that he didn't muff a punt or lose a fumble all year. Milne nonetheless could face competition for the return job during Washington's offseason program, and he's unlikely to reach the top three of the depth chart on offense.
