Redskins tight end Jordan Reed will undergo the league's concussion protocol after suffering what is believed to be his at least his 4th concussion, the Washington Post reports.
Reed's last concussion was in 2013 and forced him to miss the final six games of the season.
There's no telling the severity of the concussion until he is reviewed by doctors later in the week. In addition to the concussion he is also dealing with a sprained MCL. Reed's availability for Week 5 is not looking very good. If he's unable to play Derek Carrier will start in his place.
Redskins wide receiver DeSean Jackson (hamstring) was limited to individual drills Wednesday, Brian McNally of 106.7 The Fan reports.
The practice appearance marked Jackson's first since straining his hamstring in Week 1, forecasting that his return to game action is near. His next step will include 1-on-1 passing drills with Washington's quarterbacks, but in general, a full practice by the end of the week would provide confidence in his ability to play Sunday in Atlanta. Either way, his activity level should be monitored closely as the week progresses.
With Ayers out for a second straight week, George Selvie will likely slide over to left defensive end again, allowing Kerry Wynn to join the starting lineup as the right defensive end. Even against a run-heavy Bills team, the Giants defense will sorely miss its most effective pass-rusher.
