Reed (concussion) was a limited practice participant Wednesday.
According to The Washington Post, Reed managed to stretch with the team and take part in individual drills, but the concussion protocol remains his home. In a post-practice media session, head coach Jay Gruden said Reed will travel with the Redskins to London on Thursday, even if he isn't cleared, per Mike Garafolo of NFL Network. However, Gruden made a quick turnabout, stating Reed will instead see an independent neurologist Thursday, after which a decision to fly with the team will be made, according to Aditi Kinkhabwala of NFL Network. Under most scenarios, his Week 8 availability will be determined Thursday, but fellow tight end Vernon Davis is around to start in the event of another DNP from Reed.
The NFL has suspended Redd indefinitely for a violation of the league's Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Bans of this variety are due to continued positive tests, which is evident as Redd has yet to serve a four-gamer for a similar violation due to his recovery from a torn ACL and MCL. Once healthy enough to return to the field, he'll have to bide his time and do his due diligence considering NFL commissioner Roger Goodell will be in charge of any reinstatement effort.
Galette will have surgery to repair his torn right Achilles tendon, ruling him out for this season.
Galette's injury was revealed last week, but there remained a small hope that he may be able to avoid surgery and eventually play this year. However, upon since announcing his decision to undergo surgery, Galette can now be ruled out for the entire 2016 campaign, marking his second straight season lost due to an Achilles injury. With Galette sidelined once again, the Redskins will hope Preston Smith can build on his eight-sack rookie season and work with Trent Murphy at Washington's outside linebacker position opposite Ryan Kerrigan.
Ware (forearm) returned to practice Wednesday for the first time since fracturing his forearm in mid-September, Cameron Wolfe of the Denver Post reports.
Ware hasn't yet been ruled out for Sunday's tilt against the Chargers, in what could be his first game action since Week 2. If he's able to play, the Broncos could limit his reps leaving Shane Ray with an opportunity for an expanded role at weakside linebacker.
