The Redskins have struggled on offense in the preseason. The good news is that they are getting one of their best offensive players back to work.
The team announced that tight end Jordan Reed has been activated off the physically unable to perform list (PUP). He was placed on the list at the start of training camp with a toe injury.
At first coach Jay Gruden indicated that the injury would be a short-term problem but as it turns out he spent 24 days on the PUP list.

Reed made the Pro Bowl last year despite missing a total of four games with a shoulder injury and with a concussion, He caught 66 passes for 686 yards and six touchdowns.
His removal from the list means that he can start practicing with the team immediately. Reed would be eligible to play in the Redskins’ preseason game against the Bengals next Sunday. However, given how cautious the team has been with his injury and his value to the offense it seems likely that he will not take the field for a game until the Redskins’ season opener against the Eagles on September 10.

So much so that on Thanksgiving night with the Giants at FedFex Field to take on the Redskins in the primetime matchup, one kid had the ingenious idea to dress up as McAdoo.
Not only did the kid dress up like the head coach, but he nailed the look.
Now, Halloween was last month, but we're willing to look past that and give thanks to the creativity of this kid.
Extra pie for him. He earned it.
Playing their second game in five days, the Redskins will be without Trent Williams once again tonight.
Williams headlines the group of inactives, along with tight end Jordan Reed. It will be the third game he's missed this season, after sitting out back-to-back games during Weeks 8 and 9.
Reed hasn't played since the Redskins' against Dallas on October 29th.
Here's the entire list:
