Cam Sims: Catches two passes in December

Sims played seven games in 2019, catching two of three targets for 27 yards.

Analysis: Sims saw each of his three targets over the final two weeks of the year, even playing 63 percent of snaps on offense in the season finale when Terry McLaurin (concussion) was unavailable. Sims will need to battle for a roster spot in 2020 under a new coaching staff, entering his third NFL season with minimal game experience. If he does stick around, it likely will be as the fourth or fifth choice at wide receiver.

Cam Sims: Sitting out Week 12

Sims (coach's decision) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Lions.

Analysis: Sims was recently brought up from the practice squad due to Paul Richardson's hamstring injury last week, but has yet to see a snap. In Sims' stead, Kelvin Harmon and Steven Sims are expected to handle depth receiving duties for the game.

Cam Sims: Joining Washington

Sims signed a contract with the Redskins on Saturday, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Sims was brought up from the practice squad after Paul Richardson (hamstring) was ruled out ahead of Sunday's contest. Sims is expected to provide some depth at the wide receiver position behind the likes of Terry McLaurin, Trey Quinn, Kelvin Harmon and Steven Sims.

Cam Sims: Healthy scratch for Week 6

Sims (coach's decision) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Analysis: Sims got the call late last week from the practice squad, and will have to wait another week to see his number called for game action. His absence won't effect the offense as the team will roll with five receivers for the contest.

Cam Sims: Brought up to active roster

The Redskins signed Sims to the active roster Wednesday, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.

Analysis: Sims suited up for one game with the Redskins last year and played one snap on special teams. He'll add depth to the wideout corps with Terry McLaurin (hamstring) limited in Wednesday's practice, but he's not expected to have an immediate impact on offense Sunday versus the Patriots.

Cam Sims: Lands on Washington's practice squad

Sims signed with the Redskins' practice squad Monday, J.P. Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.

Analysis: Sims didn't survive cut-down day Saturday -- even after impressing members of the coaching staff during practices in training camp -- but he'll at least be able to stay in Washington and develop. The 23-year-old made the 53-man roster last season but suffered an injury in the first game and missed the rest of the campaign.

Cam Sims: Let go by Washington

The Redskins cut Sims on Saturday, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: The fact that Sims is looking for a new team comes as a bit of a surprise, considering he had been the front runner for the final receiver spot throughout the preseason. The Alabama product could be a viable option for another team looking to bolster their receiving corps this season.

Cam Sims: Shines during offseason program

Sims had a fantastic spring, according to JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington.

Analysis: Sims made the 53-man roster as an undrafted rookie last season, only to land on injured reserve after he suffered a high-ankle sprain Week 1. He's reportedly been healthy since October and already has built a strong case to keep his spot for another year. Given the shaky depth chart ahead of him, Sim might even push for regular snaps alongside Paul Richardson (shoulder) and Trey Quinn. The competition includes Josh Doctson, rookie third-round pick Terry McLaurin and rookie sixth-rounder Kelvin Harmon.

Cam Sims: Healthy for offseason

Sims (ankle) has been healthy since October, Kyle Stackpole of the Redskins' official website reports.

Analysis: Sims made the 53-man roster as an undrafted rookie in 2018, only to suffer a high-ankle sprain on the opening kickoff of the season. The Redskins were happy to stash him on injured reserve with an eye toward 2019, but Sims admits he struggled with not being able to play even after he regained his health. The 6-foot-5 wide receiver caught just 41 passes in four seasons at Alabama, struggling to make his mark in an offense dominated by Calvin Ridley and a strong rushing attack. The story was much the same for fellow Alabama product Robert Foster, who landed with Buffalo as an undrafted rookie and went on to post a 27-541-3 receiving line in 2018. The Redskins hope Sims can make a similar impact as a downfield weapon, though his game revolves around size more so than speed.

Cam Sims: Unlikely to return in near future

Sims (ankle) is unlikely to return to the active roster in the near future, JP Finlay of NBCSports.com reports.

Analysis: With Jamison Crowder's (ankle) status remaining uncertain for now, the Redskins will likely opt to bring back a wideout from injured reserve within the week, although it seems unlikely that receiver will be Sims. It appears that Trey Quinn (ankle) has a step up on Sims in the pecking order, at least according to head coach Jay Gruden. "We'll probably just take one of them. Right now I think Trey is probably closer to returning than Cam," Gruden noted Monday. Still, it's a promising sign for Sims that he is heading in the right direction after landing on IR due to a high-ankle sprain in Week 1.

Cam Sims: Placed on IR

Sims (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

Analysis: Sims suffered a high-ankle sprain in Sunday's season opening victory over the Cardinals. The injury is serious enough to land him on IR for the remainder of the season. Brian Quick was subsequently picked up to replace him as a depth pass-catcher.

Cam Sims: Nursing high ankle sprain

Sims suffered a high ankle sprain in Sunday's game against the Cardinals, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.

Analysis: Sims left Sunday's contest in the first quarter and did not return. It appears as though Sims is still going through some final tests, so the Redskins should provide an official update on the receiver's timetable later on Monday.

Cam Sims: Will undergo MRI on injured ankle

Sims will receive an MRI on his injured ankle Monday, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: With Maurice Harris (concussion) and Trey Quinn (ankle) also injured, any prolonged absence for Sims could thin out the bottom half of the Redskins wide receiver depth chart. The 22-year-old will hope the MRI results bear good news.

September 9, 2018 5:39 PM EST

Cam Sims: Won't return Sunday

Sims (ankle) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

Analysis: Sims was forced out of the first quarter with an ankle injury, which has been deemed severe enough to sideline him for the remainder of the Redskins' season opener. Trey Quinn could see increased snaps with Sims out.

September 9, 2018 2:01 PM EST

Cam Sims: Injures ankle

Sims is questionable to return Sunday against the Cardinals due to an ankle injury.

Analysis: Sims made Washington's 53-man roster after an impressive preseason, but the undrafted rookie's regular-season debut seems off to a rocky start. Expect an update on Sims' injury after the game if he is unable to return to the field Sunday.

Cam Sims: Earns spot on team

Sims is listed as the backup to Paul Richardson on Washington's depth chart for Week 1, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports.

Analysis: The undrafted rookie out of Alabama made a strong impression during training camp and had five catches for 131 yards over the first two weeks of the preseason. Despite catching just 41 passes throughout his entire college career, Sims offers some long-term upside thanks to his impressive combination of size (6-foot-5) and speed (4.52 40). He's unlikely to get many snaps on offense as a rookie.

September 5, 2018 4:26 PM EST

Cam Sims: Returns to practice

Sims (thigh) returned to practice Monday, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Sims was held out of Saturday's preseason contest due to the lingering thigh issue. While the Redskins would have loved to see Sims prove his worth in live game action, the 22-year-old will have his chance to earn a roster spot in the team's fourth and final preseason game Thursday.

August 27, 2018 11:20 AM EST

Cam Sims: Sits out against Denver

Sims (thigh) didn't play in Friday's preseason loss to the Broncos.

Analysis: Sims caught three of six targets for 57 yards in last week's exhibition against the Jets, bolstering his case for one of the final spots on the 53-man roster. With his injury not believed to be serious, the undrafted rookie may get another shot to make his case in Washington's preseason finale Thursday against the Ravens.

August 25, 2018 11:40 AM EST

Cam Sims: Inching towards a return from thigh injury

Sims (thigh) was spotted stretching with the team Wednesday, Rich Tandler of NBCSportsWashington.com reports.

Analysis: Sims has been sidelined for the past two practices with a thigh injury. While stretching is encouraging, it'll be a greater reassurance once Sims is back in full pads and practicing.

August 22, 2018 9:29 AM EST

Cam Sims: Misses Sunday's practice

Sims did not participate in Sunday's practice due to an undisclosed reason, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Sims led the Redskins in receiving with three catches for 57 yards in Thursday's preseason win over the Jets, but Sunday's absence from practice may indicate a minor injury. He doesn't appear to be dealing with any significant issues, however, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see the receiver return in time for Friday's exhibition tilt against the Broncos.
