Washington general manager Scot McCloughan didn't take the news of rookie receiver Josh Doctson being slowed by an Achilles injury that well.
When McCloughan showed up to training camp Friday with his left hand in a medical wrap, it raised questions that former Washington tight end Chris Cooley was able to answer.
"I said, 'What happened to your hand?'" host Cooley said on ESPN 980, via Richmond.com. "He said, when I found out about Doctson - which they thought was going to be much worse, the Doctson injury, apparently it isn't going to be as bad - I punched the wall."
The former 49ers general manager, who has been with Washington since 2015, drafted Doctson with the No. 22 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.
With that high of an investment, McCloughan and the team have certain expectations. Doctson's injury isn't believed to be serious, but the former All-American out of TCU began training camp on the PUP list.
"I just thought, 'I love you. I freaking love you, man,'" Cooley expressed after digesting the story. "Everything he does. He cares so much about his guys, his players. It upset him."
When asked at camp Friday about his hand, McCloughan pointed at Doctson and said, "It's this guy's fault."
McCloughan was VP of Player Personnel for the 49ers from 2005-07, and GM from 2008-09.
