Which Washington Commanders' news stories are hitting the headlines following the team's impressive preseason win over the Baltimore Ravens?

It might have only been preseason, but the atmosphere was electric at FedEx Field for the first contest on home soil since Dan Snyder sold the Washington Commanders. Monday's win to break the Baltimore Ravens' unbeaten streak was another encouraging milestone in their preparations for the upcoming campaign, which couldn't be going much better aside from the injury front.

Of course, such an event always brings about plenty of news and rumors. Among the stories causing debate include Sam Howell's endorsement, Ron Rivera's assessment, Terry McLaurin's status, and Josh Harris on how he's found being an NFL owner so far.

Let's delve into each topic in more detail.

Commanders WR Terry McLaurin's status

Although it was mainly positive from the Washington Commanders after their outstanding display in the national spotlight, there was one area of concern. Terry McLaurin went out with a toe injury that required further assessment, which had fans feeling a sense of trepidation as they awaited news from the face of the franchise.

Tests came back negative - meaning there was no fracture - but head coach Ron Rivera stated that McLaurin is now day-to-day in terms of availability. Considering how we are still in the preseason, one would expect to see the former third-round selection shut down until Week 1 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Hopefully, there will be no further complications and McLaurin can assist right out of the gate in 2023. Especially considering the Commanders might actually have a productive quarterback for the first time since he was drafted.
