Inman caught each of his five targets for 45 yards in Sunday's 20-19 loss to the Giants.
The 31-year-old has drawn exactly five targets in four of six games this year, with his 45 yards from Sunday representing a season high. The team might eventually give more work to younger players, but Inman likely will retain his top-three role for at least Week 7 against the Cowboys. A Week 8 bye could be a logical time for Washington to kick off a youth movement, though the current state of the NFC East means the team will be right in the hunt if it can upset Dallas next Sunday.
Inman caught his lone target for a loss of two yards in Sunday's 30-10 loss to the Rams.
It was a rough day for the Washington offense, with Kyle Allen (arm) and Alex Smith combining for 41 sack yards and only 111 passing yards. Inman lost his four-game streak with five or more targets, though he never reached 40 yards anyway during that stretch. He does get a better matchup Week 5, facing the Giants at the Meadowlands.
Inman (foot) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Rams, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.
The same goes for Terry McLaurin (thigh), whereas Steven Sims (toe) has been placed on injured reserve. Inman took on season-high 80 percent snap share with Sims inactive last week, catching four of five targets for 29 yards in a 31-17 loss to Baltimore. Inman has seen either five or six targets each week this season, scoring a pair of touchdowns (both in Week 3) despite producing only 5.0 YPT. It's possible his efficiency stats improve with Kyle Allen replacing Dwayne Haskins under center, though Allen was a turnover machine for the Panthers last season.
Inman (foot) was limited at practice Thursday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.
After failing to practice Wednesday, Inman is taking a step in the right direction. Washington's top WR Terry McLaurin (thigh) also did the same, while Steven Sims (toe) remained sidelined. Inman has consistently received 5-to-6 targets per game this season, but production has been lacking, with 11 catches (on 21 targets) for 105 yards. Still, two of those receptions went for touchdowns.
Inman didn't practice Wednesday due to a foot injury, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.
Inman joined Terry McLaurin (thigh) and Steven Sims (toe) as non-participants as Washington kicked off Week 5 prep. On the season, Inman has logged at least 50 percent of the offensive snaps in each of the team's four games, but aside from a two-touchdown performance Week 3, he hasn't surpassed 40 receiving yards in any contest.
Inman tallied four receptions on five targets for 29 yards in Week 4 against Baltimore.
Inman failed to follow up on his two-touchdown performance in Week 3, instead returning to a more peripheral role. Three of his receptions went for under 10 yards, with his only substantial gain being a 13-yard reception late in the third quarter. However, there should be plenty of passing volume for Inman and other receivers in Week 5 as the team will host the Rams.
Inman should have a key role in the Washington offense Sunday against Baltimore, as Steven Sims (toe) has been ruled out and Terry McLaurin (thigh) is listed as questionable.
Inman actually hurt his wrist in the second half of last week's loss to the Browns, but not before he caught three of six targets for 38 yards and two touchdowns. He then returned to practice Thursday as a full participant, potentially setting up a busy Week 4 against the Ravens. Granted, this is hardly Inman's first crack at replacing an injured starter in the NFL, and the results largely have been underwhelming since his mini-breakout in 2016 with the Chargers (58 catches for 810 yards and four TDs). A matchup against the Baltimore secondary won't help, though the unit looked like a mess against Patrick Mahomes on Monday night. Dwayne Haskins, of course, is a far cry from Mahomes, nor will Inman be mistaken for Tyreek Hill or Sammy Watkins.
Inman (wrist) practiced in full Thursday, Kyle Stackpole of Washington's official site reports.
Inman exited Washington's Week 3 loss to the Browns with a wrist injury, and afterward coach Ron Rivera said the wide receiver didn't suffer a fracture. It was somewhat concerning when Inman didn't practice Wednesday, but his ability to handle every rep one day later confirms his health ahead of Sunday's game against the Ravens.
Inman (wrist) didn't practice Wednesday, Kyle Stackpole of Washington's official site reports.
The same goes for Steven Sims, who played through a toe injury in the Week 3 loss to Cleveland but saw his snap share sink to 35 percent. Inman took advantage of the extra playing time by scoring a pair touchdowns, only to exit in the fourth quarter with an injury of his own. Results from an X-ray didn't show any fracture to his left wrist, but that doesn't necessarily mean Inman will be available for Sunday's game against Baltimore.
Coach Ron Rivera said Monday that Inman (wrist) received negative X-ray results and has not sustained a fracture, Kyle Stackpole of Washington's official site reports.
Inman was forced out of Sunday's loss to the Browns in the fourth quarter, but it looks as though he's avoided a worst-case scenario. He secured three of six targets for 38 yards and two scores before leaving the field, so if Inman is able to return against Baltimore in Week 4 he could have some fantasy appeal in deeper formats.
Inman (wrist) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Browns, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports.
Inman suffered the injury late in the fourth quarter, so it's not likely that he'll return to the contest with the game out of reach. Inman had a fantastic game until getting injured, hauling in three passes for 38 yards and two scores. In his absence, Antonio Gandy-Golden is in line to see an uptick in snaps at three-wide sets.
Inman caught two of five targets for 17 yards in Sunday's 30-15 loss to the Cardinals, playing 68 percent of offensive snaps.
Inman worked as the No. 3 receiver for the second time in as many weeks, taking the field alongside Terry McLaurin and Steven Sims in three-wide sets. The role doesn't figure to produce more than two or three catches per week, as McLaurin and tight end Logan Thomas have been the central figures in the Washington passing game. Week 3 brings a trip to Cleveland.
Inman caught two of five targets for 21 yards in Sunday's 27-17 win over the Eagles, playing 51 percent of snaps on offense.
Inman was one of three wide receivers to get playing time, behind Terry McLaurin (93 percent snap share) and Steven Sims (83 percent). The Washington offense made frequent use of multi-TE formations, and there were also some plays where RBs Antonio Gibson and J.D. McKissic moved around the formation to line up in the slot or out wide. In any case, Inman tied for third on the team in targets, but Sims is probably the better fantasy choice moving forward, starting with Week 2 at Arizona.
Inman, Terry McLaurin and Steven Sims worked as the first-team wide receivers at Tuesday's practice, Rhiannon Walker of The Athletic reports.
It says a lot about the position group that Inman is working with the starters just two weeks after he signed with the team. He caught only 12 passes in seven games for the Colts and Chargers last year, but a top-three role is a distinct possibility now that the 31-year-old is in Washington, where there appears to be open competition for playing time behind McLaurin. The other candidates for snaps include slot specialist Trey Quinn, rookie fourth-round pick Antonio Gandy-Golden and 2018 UDFA Cam Sims.

It's the best possible outcome for a free-agent wideout in terms of the opportunity to earn playing time. Washington should have open competition behind top dog Terry McLaurin, with Steven Sims and Trey Quinn battling for slot snaps while Inman jockeys with the likes of Antonio Gandy-Golden and Cam Sims for outside work. There has been some mention of Sims potentially lining up outside, but this still profiles as a favorable situation for the 31-year-old Inman, who caught 12 passes for 181 yards in seven appearances for the Colts and Chargers last year. He had his best season back in 2016, when he put up a 58-810-4 receiving line for an injury-plagued Chargers squad.
Inman visited with the Washington Football Team, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
Since putting up a 58-810-4 line on 97 targets in 2016 with San Diego, Inman has transformed into a journeyman, spending time with the Bears and Colts in addition to a second stint with the L.A. version of the Chargers. During that three-year stretch, he combined for 65 catches for 828 yards and four touchdowns. Washington lost second-year pro Kelvin Harmon to a torn ACL and otherwise has an inexperienced receiving corps, so Inman would provide a veteran presence to the group, if he signs with the team.
Inman registered 12 receptions for 181 scoreless yards in 2019.
Inman started the season with the Chargers and played four games before being cut and signing with Indianapolis, where he geared up in three outings. He'll turn 31 years old in late January, and he'll be an unrestricted free agent in March.
Inman caught two of three targets for 25 yards in Monday night's 34-7 loss to the Saints.
Inman's output included a long catch of 22 yards, showing his familiarity with the Colts' offense after rejoining the team earlier in the week. Although he's just a depth option, Indy's rotating cast of receivers at least opens opportunities for those who remain healthy, potentially allowing Inman to carve out a little late-season value.
Inman (quadriceps) signed with the Colts on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Indianapolis' attrition at wide receiver led to bringing back Inman, who spent last season with the team. He worked out for the Colts ahead of Week 14 and should be able to get on the field rather quickly given his familiarity with the system. Zach Pascal and Marcus Johnson project to be the top receivers in Week 15 if T.Y. Hilton (calf) remains out, but it would not be surprising if Inman is able to carve out a role.
The Colts worked out Inman (quadriceps) on Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
Inman had a nine-game stint with Indianapolis last season, reeling in 28 of 39 passes for 304 yards and three touchdowns. The Colts may be inspecting his health to get a sense of whether he can help a banged-up receiving corps. Inman spent most of October and November on IR as he tended to a quad injury before the Chargers waived him Nov. 25, so he may find himself employed if he passes the requisite tests.
