Rookie WR Josh Doctson active for Redskins vs. Steelers

LANDOVER, Md. (AP) First-round pick Josh Doctson is active for the Washington Redskins' season opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday night.

The wide receiver missed training camp and the entire preseason with a sore left Achilles tendon. Doctson was listed as questionable on the injury report Saturday after making significant progress in practice.

Washington made receiver Rashad Ross, defensive backs Kendall Fuller and Duke Ihenacho, quarterback Nate Sudfeld, defensive lineman Anthony Lanier and offensive linemen Austin Reiter and Arie Kouandjio inactive.

The Steelers had no surprises as inactive receiver Markus Wheaton (shoulder), offensive lineman Cody Wallace (knee), cornerback Senquez Golson (foot) and fullback Roosevelt Nix (back) were all ruled out Saturday.

Pittsburgh also made quarterback Zach Mettenberger, linebacker Steven Johnson and defensive end L.T. Walton inactive.
