Not much on the stat sheet, but Jordan Reed had a wild Monday night.
After taking a nasty, perhaps cheap, shot to his injured shoulder in the third quarter, Reed stayed down on the ground for a few moments writhing in pain. He exited the game for a brief period, but then came back in and had his first catch of the game.
On that catch, Reed showed to be in obvious pain.
A few plays later, Reed lost his cool.
Engaged with Panthers safety Kurt Coleman, a series of pushes and shoves devolved into Reed clearly throwing a punch.

Per NFL rules, throw a punch, get ejected, and the refs quickly threw the Redskins star tight end out of the game.
Since Reed injured his shoulder on Thanksgiving in Dallas, his season has gone downhill.
He missed the loss in Arizona dealing with the injury, played in last week's win over Philadelphia but was limited to just 10 snaps, and then played again Monday night but was obviously injured before his ejection.
His effort to play through obvious pain is admirable, and it's almost as obvious Reed is not the same player with the shoulder injury.
