Jordan Reed (hamstring) says he's 100 percent.
Reed was back at practice Tuesday, and hopes to play in this weekend's preseason game. "I took my time getting back so I'll be all good for the season," Reed said. Reed's ever-shaky health has taken on much greater importance after Niles Paul (ankle) was lost for the season. Reed has top-10 upside, but should be drafted as an injury-prone TE2. Aug 25 - 4:00 PM

Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) returned to practice on Tuesday.

Reed was in pads, but he will likely be limited. With Niles Paul done for the year, the Redskins need Reed to stay healthy.

Jordan Reed (hamstring) has been ruled out for Thursday's preseason game against the Lions.

Reed has been "day to day" for a week. Coach Jay Gruden says Reed's Thursday absence isn't merely a precaution, and that he wouldn't be ready to go were it the regular season. It's troubling news for a player whose career has continually been derailed by hamstring issues. The next test for Reed will be Washington's regular season dress rehearsal in 11 days. The pressure on Reed to stay healthy has amped up considerably after Niles Paul landed on injured reserve.

Jordan Reed (hamstring) could play in Washington's second preseason game.

Reed hasn't practiced since last week, but is close to returning. With Niles Paul and Logan Paulsen out for the year, the Redskins desperately need to get Reed healthy. Practice-squad types Je’Ron Hamm, Chase Dixon, and Devin Mehina are currently Washington's only active tight ends.

Jordan Reed is "day to day" with a hamstring injury.

Here we go again. Coach Jay Gruden described the injury as merely "soreness," but any hamstring issue is notable for a player who has battled as many of them as Reed. He'll presumably miss Thursday's preseason opener against Cleveland. Reed has ample pass-catching talent, but simply can't stay on the field. It's for that fact that Gruden recently called Niles Paul a more complete player.
Aug 11 - 3:50 PM

Jordan Reed has changed his off-field routine in order to stay healthy on it and vows to play all 16 games this season.

Reed has cleaned up his diet, banishing bread, fried food and sweets, instead concentrating on eating "just real clean." He's also focusing more on stretching after dealing with a number of soft-tissue injuries his first two seasons. Finally 100 percent healthy, fantasy owners are sleeping on the ultra-athletic pass catcher. Reed is currently going undrafted in 12-team leagues.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden "(feels) a difference" with Jordan Reed this summer.

Reed is finally 100 percent healthy, and Gruden believes he has "more confidence in his strength in regards to his blocking." Reed's pass-catching upside is through the roof, but he left something to be desired as a blocker last season. The return of Niles Paul has also dented Reed's 2015 fantasy appeal.

Jordan Reed said the procedure he underwent on his knee in May was a stem cell shot.

It was assumed that Reed did a scope on his knee after experiencing soreness during OTAs. The fact that he went the stem cell route is encouraging and lends some hope that he can sustain health. When Reed is on the field and feeling good, he's a matchup nightmare for defenses. It's worth tracking his battle with Niles Paul at camp.
Jul 30 - 12:18 PM

Jordan Reed (knee) has been fully cleared for the start of training camp.

The Redskins held Reed out of OTAs and minicamp following a clean-up on his knee. Coming off a zero-touchdown season, it will be interesting to see whether the Redskins make Reed fight to keep his first-string job. Reed doesn't play on running downs, so he'll at least be part of a committee. They re-signed Niles Paul to a three-year, $6 million contract in the offseason. The current front office and coaching staff did not bring Reed to Washington.
Jul 29 - 5:05 PM

Jordan Reed (knee) is expected to be ready for the start of training camp.

Reed missed OTAs recovering from a minor knee procedure, but was reportedly healthy enough that he could have taken part in some of the offseason work. Niles Paul worked with the first team and should remain in a committee with Reed. The Redskins want to feature Reed, but can’t count on him staying healthy. Injuries have limited Reed to 20 games the last two seasons.
Jul 11 - 3:14 PM

Jordan Reed recently underwent a "procedure" on his knee.

Coach Jay Gruden said Reed will be ready for training camp, meaning the "procedure" was likely a scope or clean-out of some kind. But it's another setback for a player who is among the most injury-prone in the entire NFL. Reed has missed 12 games through two seasons, causing him to lose his grip on the starting tight end job. Niles Paul will head to camp as the frontrunner for the gig.
Jun 1 - 10:48 AM

Per ESPN 980 Washington, "several people in the organization" have voiced concerns about Redskins TE Jordan Reed's (knee) health.

Reed was present for the start of OTAs on Tuesday, but wasn't taking part and instead having his knee checked out by the training staff. Beat reporter Chris Russell believes it's "something to be concerned about." Reed has been highly injury-prone recently, and it appears he's starting 2015 on the trainer's table.
May 26 - 8:42 PM

Redskins TE Jordan Reed is "getting checked for soreness" in his knee.

It appears the injury-prone tight end is undergoing tests. Reed dealt with knee issues his rookie offseason, but has primarily been sidelined by hamstring issues. It's extremely unwelcome news that Reed is already at less than 100 percent.
May 26 - 1:41 PM

CSN Washington's Tarik El-Bashir cites Jordan Reed as a candidate for a breakout season in 2015.

El-Bashir threw out 60 catches, 800 yards and six touchdowns as realistic projections for Reed if he can stay healthy. Those are Pro Bowl-type numbers. Reed functioned mostly as a check-down man in 2014, logging 50 catches for 465 yards. His size (6'2" and 237 pounds) suggests he could be a red zone presence, but we've yet to see that from Reed in his first two seasons (only three touchdowns in 20 games).
Feb 22 - 10:03 AM

Jordan Reed has said he intends to stop hurdling defenders in an effort to avoid injuries.

Injuries have been the story of Reed's career dating back to his time at the University of Florida. He's missed 12 games across his first two NFL seasons due to repeated concussions and multiple severe hamstring pulls. Staying on the ground while trying to avoid defenders and changing his offseason routine should help a little bit with the soft-tissue woes, but Reed will remain a major injury risk. It's a shame, because his athletic skill set is tantalizing.
