Oft-injured Redskins tight end Jordan Reed is hurt again.
And this time, he’s suffering from ailments to three different parts of his body.
Reed, who leads the Redskins in receiving yards, has a sprained MCL in his right knee, an ankle sprain and is in the NFL’s protocol for concussions.
Reed suffered the concussion late in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s 23-20 victory over the Eagles and did not return.
Gruden said he’s not all that concerned about Reed’s knee injury; he suffered that at the end of the first half and came back to the field. The bigger worry is Reed’s head, given his history of concussions. The third-year pro missed the final six games of his rookie season with a concussion.
“It’s a concern,” Gruden said. “These things are all different in each player. The magnitude of the concussion, you don’t know until they go through the protocol and get tested and go through the necessary steps. I don’t know the severity of it, at all.”
The Redskins are already very thin at tight end after losing Niles Paul and Logan Paulsen to season ending injuries in training camp and the preseason, respectively. The only healthy tight ends currently on the roster are Derek Carrier and Anthony McCoy. The Redskins also have Je’Ron Hamm on the practice squad.
