Reed recorded five receptions for 40 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Giants.
Reed was limited all week due to shoulder aliment but didn't seemed to be bothered by it in the season-finale. Reed scored the team's lone touchdown, a one-yard strike from Kirk Cousins in the third quarter. He'll now shift his focus to getting healthy in the offseason, as he continuously popped up on Washington's injury report throughout the season. Through all the injuries, Reed recorded 66 receptions for 686 yards and six touchdowns in 12 games.

Despite turning in limited showings all week, Reed was termed by head coach Jay Gruden as looking "like a ballerina out there" Friday. If he's indeed closing in on the end of his recovery from an AC joint separation in his left shoulder, Reed could yield fruit against a Giants defense that has surrendered 77.8 yards per game and two touchdowns to tight ends over the last eight outings.
Reed's shoulder injury kept him limited in practice this week, but coach Jay Gruden was impressed by his performance Friday, saying, "Jordan looks great, he looks like a ballerina out there." Given that vote of confidence, it seems likely that Reed will suit up Sunday, but fantasy owners should still confirm his Week 17 status before setting their lineups.
Notably, head coach Jay Gruden relayed Thursday to John Keim of ESPN.com that Reed "did a lot more today" than he did Wednesday and "looks good," adding that he's on the path to active status Sunday against the Giants. In order to avoid an injury designation at week's end, Reed may have to practice in full Friday, meaning a listing of questionable is more than likely at this point.
Reed (shoulder) was a limited practice participant Wednesday.
The Redskins kept Reed on the shelf last week due to the lingering effects of a Grade 3 AC joint separation in his left shoulder. Upon Reed's return to practice Wednesday, head coach Jay Gruden noted afterward that the tight end is progressing in his recovery, which is a "good sign" for him to suit up Sunday against the Giants. In the end, Reed's status will be watched closely as the week progresses to ensure game action is possible in the regular season finale.
