The Washington Commanders have a quick turnaround after their overtime loss in Week 4, and they have a receiver dealing with an ankle injury ahead of Thursday Night Football against the Chicago Bears.

Jahan Dotson was limited in practice due to an ankle injury, but it’s possible the team was just giving the young receiver some rest before Thursday’s contest. 

Jahan Dotson injury status for Week 5 vs. Chicago Bears

Jahan Dotson may end up being listed as questionable with an ankle injury for Week 5 against the Chicago Bears. It would be surprising to see him miss this game since he played in Week 4.

Best Jahan Dotson prop bet in Week 5 vs. Chicago Bears

Jahan Dotson anytime touchdown scorer 

Dotson found the end zone last week, and I wouldn't be shocked if he does it again in Week 5 against a Bears team that is 31st in the NFL in yards per play allowed this season.  

Chicago is especially bad against the pass, allowing the fourth most yards and second most touchdown passes through four games. 

Dotson is a touchdown machine, catching seven in just 12 games last season and registering his first of the 2023 campaign last week. 

I wouldn’t be shocked to see him find the end zone again in Week 5.

Dotson missed time during his rookie season due to a hamstring injury he suffered in Week 5. That limited him to just 12 games as a rookie, but he was still productive for Washington, catching seven scores. 

When is Jahan Dotson coming back?

Dotson has a good chance to play in Week 5 against the Bears after logging a limited practice this week.
