After suffering a concussion last week against the Ravens, Redskins star tight end Jordan Reed is questionable for this Sunday's NFC East game against the Eagles. Reed entered the league's concussion protocol this week after showing signs of a concussion, which was later confirmed.
Jordan Reed questionable vs Eagles. Did not practice today. Cravens also questionable. He did individuals but not team drills #RedskinsTalk— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) October 14, 2016
In his fourth season with Washington, Reed has never played a complete 16-game season for the Redskins. More troublesome, this marks at least the sixth concussion for the tight end, who has battled head injuries since his college days at University of Florida.
Reed missed practice Wednesday and Thursday, though head coach Jay Gruden has been hesitant to rule his tight end out for Sunday's game.
Through five games, Reed leads the Redskins in catches and receiving yards and is tied for the lead in receiving touchdowns. Further, nearly 25 percent of Kirk Cousins passes are aimed at Reed.
The Redskins offense will have to adjust if Reed proves unable to play, and that should mean more oppportunities for Pierre Garçon, DeSean Jackson and Jamison Crowder. Veteran tight end Vernon Davis would slide into Reed's spot with the starting offense, and Niles Paul would get more snaps as well.
