DALLAS — It’s no surprise but the Redskins officially declared that tight end Jordan Reed will miss his fifth straight game with a hamstring injury.
He was listed as out on the final injury report in advance of the Thursday night game against the Cowboys.
The 2016 Pro Bowler has had a rough season so far. In the first four games of the season he didn’t have more than 48 receiving yards in a game and he did not score a touchdown.
He seemed to be rounding into form in Week 7 with 64 receiving yards and two touchdowns against the Eagles.

But he exited the following game against the Cowboys early with the hamstring and he hasn’t played since. Reed said that he suffered a setback a couple of weeks ago so the timetable for his return was extended.
There is hope that he will be able to play when the Redskins play the Chargers in Los Angeles on December 10 but nobody is counting on that at this point.
In addition to Reed, the Redskins also said that C Chase Roullier (hand), S Montae Nicholson (concussion), and DE Terrell McClain (toe) are out.
Roullier suffered a broken right hand, his snapping hand, against the Saints in Week 11.
Jay Gruden said that the hope is that they can get him back to play against the Chargers, something that would depend on if he can be fitted with a cast that would allow him to snap. Tony Bergstrom will continue to start at center until the rookie can return.

Nicholson will miss his second straight game.
It’s difficult to figure out a timetable for when a player can get cleared through the concussion protocol. The Chargers game will be three weeks after the concussion and while he could be ready then we will have to wait and see. Deshazor Everett will start in his place.
McClain also will also miss his second game in a row with the toe. “These big guys who have these toe injuries – there is a lot of weight that he has got to put on there,” said Gruden. “All the planting and moving around side to side, it’s a little bit more difficult. So we will see what he can tolerate.”
The Redskins listed seven players a questionable. Among them is OT Trent Williams (knee), who technically will be a game time decision but he likely will start at left tackle.
