Reed (toe) is targeting a return to practice next week, Liz Clarke of The Washington Post reports.
Reed has been parked on the Redskins' Physically Unable to Perform list with a toe injury since training camp opened, but the tight end caught passes and ran a bit following Sunday's session. While doing so, Reed donned a custom-made cushion under his left foot to provide his toe with extra padding. If all goes well, Reed hopes to be cleared to join his teammates for full activities next week, but even if that's the case, it's unknown whether he'll suit up in any preseason games.
Reed (toe) will be re-evaluated after Saturday's preseason game against the Packers, ESPN's John Keim reports.
This news implies that Reed won't be available for Saturday's game as he continues to work his way back from a toe injury on his left foot. Even if he doesn't receive clearance to play in Week 3 of the preseason, head coach Jay Gruden recently said Reed is still fully expected to be ready in time for the regular-season opener.
Reed (toe) hopes to be available for the team's second preseason game versus the packers.
Reed has been on the Physically Unable to Perform list since training camp kicked off. His absence is the result of an unexpected side effect from stem-cell treatment on a lingering toe injury. Coach Jay Gruden recently indicated he expected Reed to be ready for Week 1, so the team does not seem overly concerned. Expect the team to be extra cautious with their starting tight end if he does ultimately take the field against the Packers.
No surprises here, as Reed still resides on the Physically Unable to Perform list with a nagging toe injury. In his steed, Vernon Davis and Niles Paul are the next guys up, though 2017 fifth-rounder Jeremy Sprinkle could be in store for added reps as well.
Head coach Jay Gruden expects Reed (toe) to be ready for Week 1, John Keim of ESPN reports.
Gruden stated "from every indication (Reed) will be ready for the season." The star tight end is on the physically unable to perform list due to a sprained big toe. The absence is the result of an unexpected side effect of stem-cell treatment on the lingering injury. The decision to place him on the PUP list at the start of training camp was surprising, but given Reed's lengthy injury history, the team is likely airing on the side of caution in order to ensure his health entering the start of the season.
