Jordan Reed remains in the league's concussion protocol as of Thursday, CSN Mid-Atlantic reports. "He's in the system right now, the protocol system," head coach Jay Gruden said. "It's symptom-related. Once he is relieved of his symptoms, then he can come back and participate. But until then, we can't see him."
As implied by Gruden, Reed hasn't been active since sustaining the head injury Sunday versus the Eagles, which doesn't bode well for his Week 5 availability. Previously, Reed missed six games due to a concussion in his rookie campaign in 2013, meaning the process could vex owners yet again. In the interim, Derek Carrier will serve as Washington's top tight end.
Jordan Reed (concussion/knee/ankle) didn't participate in practice Thursday, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports.
Reed's history with concussions has reared its ugly head yet again, and fortunately the protocol for head injuries exists to make sure he's without symptoms before returning to the field. If he's unable to play Sunday in Atlanta, Washington would turn to Derek Carrier as the No. 1 tight end.
Washington 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.
Washington Redskins tight end Jordan Reed , who suffered a concussion Sunday against Philadelphia, also sustained mild knee and ankle sprains, the Washington Post reports.
Though Jay Gruden doesn't think that either of the latter two issues are serious, Reed's Week 5 status is cloudy until more is known about the severity of the concussion.
Washington Redskins tight end Jordan Reed was evaluated for a concussion following the Sunday defeat of Philadelphia, per Mike Jones of the Washington Post.
In the latter stages of the game, Reed took a knee to the helmet and was visibly woozy on the field. While he added five catches for 37 yards on seven targets to his season-long line, he could soon enter the concussion protocol, which he would have to emerge from in order to play next Sunday in Atlanta.
