The Redskins injury report had one significant addition that’s sure to make fans cringe: tight end Jordan Reed was limited in Thursday's practice with a quadriceps strain.
Coach Jay Gruden insisted the injury isn’t serious, but given Reed’s history, it probably bears watching.
“He just had a little tweak today,” Gruden said. “I think it’s minor. We just held him out of a period or two.”
In the Redskins’ season-opening loss to the Dolphins, Reed had a team-high seven receptions for 63 yards and a touchdown.
Also on Thursday’s injury report were wide receiver DeSean Jackson (out/hamstring), cornerback Justin Rogers (did not practice/foot), inside linebacker Martrell Spaight (did not practice/concussion), reserve offensive tackle Tom Compton (limited/calf) and nose tackle Terrance Knighton (limited/rib).
On Spaight’s availability for Sunday’s game against the Rams, Gruden said: “We’re hoping to get a word on Spaight here pretty soon, but obviously we have Terrance [Plummer] on our practice squad and that’s an option that we could look at. We definitely want to go into the game with four inside backers, so in order to do that, if Spaight can’t go, we’d have to bring up Plummer or add somebody else.”
Full participants were cornerback DeAngelo Hall (rib), center Kory Lichtensteiger (finger), offensive tackle Trent Williams (ankle) and outside linebacker Jackson Jeffcoat (thigh).
