The Redskins have listed tight end Jordan Reed as questionable on their injury report for this week. Of course, after suffering yet another concussion, it would be surprising if Reed suits up on Sunday against the Eagles.
Reed has now suffered six documented concussions and he has likely had even more throughout the course of his football playing career. The tight end has admitted that he did not report one of his two concussions suffered in 2013.
So far this year, Reed leads all Redskins receivers with 33 catches for 316 yards and two touchdowns. He’ll likely be out for at least this week and the Redskins will turn to Vernon Davis and Niles Paul to replace him in the lineup. If Washington opts to promote a tight end, they could promote Derek Carrier from the practice squad.
Reed signed an extension with the Redskins this spring, a five-year pact with a $46.5MM base. After being limited to just 20 overall games in 2013 and 2014, Reed stayed healthy for 14 games last season, racking up 87 receptions for 952 yards and 11 touchdowns.
