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 Derek Carrier caught both of his targets for 18 yards in Sunday's win against the Philadelphia Eagles .
Starting tight end Jordan Reed was diagnosed with a concussion after the game, which could lead to increased playing time in Week 5. Reed will have to go through the concussion protocol. He only played in nine games in 2013 because of a serious concussion that lingered the second half of the season.
During the 2013 season, Reed missed one game as a rookie due to a quad contusion, which was the first of his 12 combined absences the past two years. As a result, his availability in Week 2 is suddenly in question in advance of Sunday's contest against the Rams. If Reed is held out, Gruden would likely turn to a timeshare at tight end between Derek Carrier and
Washington dealt away a fifth-round pick to obtain Carrier.
