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. 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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).

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.

Jordan Reed caught 9-of-10 targets for 70 yards in the Redskins' Week 17 loss to the Cowboys.

The catches tied a season high, while the yards were Reed's third most of 2014. In between injuries, Reed continued to show the promise he flashed as a rookie, averaging 4.5 catches for 42 yards in the 11 games he managed to appear in. The problem, of course, is Reed's continued propensity for soft-tissue ailments, particularly hamstring. Reed's athletic upside will have him on the TE1 radar for 2015, but his downside is well established. Reed has missed 12 games across only two NFL seasons.

Jordan Reed caught two-of-four targets for five yards in Saturday's Week 16 win over the Eagles.

Reed is averaging just three catches over the last three games. He can't be trusted as more than a TE2 option despite a favorable Week 17 matchup with Dallas.
Sat, Dec 20, 2014 09:47:00 PM

Jordan Reed had three catches for 13 yards in Sunday's Week 15 loss to the Giants.

He was targeted four times. Reed lost snaps to Niles Paul and Logan Paulsen in base sets. He continues to be limited by Jay Gruden's offense. Reed will be a boom-or-bust TE1 in Week 16 against the Eagles.
Sun, Dec 14, 2014 05:29:00 PM

Jordan Reed caught three passes for 25 yards in the Redskins' Week 14 loss to the Rams.

He was targeted seven times. The Rams are one of the best teams in the league at defending the tight end, so there wasn't a ton of room for Reed to make plays. He'll be back on the TE1 radar next week against the Giants.
Sun, Dec 7, 2014 05:26:00 PM

Jordan Reed caught 9-of-11 targets for 123 yards Week 13 against the Colts.

Colt McCoy looked Reed's way early and often in this one, throwing his way on third and short from the Colts' 11 in the first quarter and targeting him several more times in the red zone throughout the game. Reed looked healthy, breaking tackles and making an athletic move to almost get into the end zone in the second half. McCoy has a long history of loving tight ends and has now targeted Reed 18 times in his two starts this season. Reed will be on the TE1 map as long as he can stay healthy.

Jordan Reed (hamstring) is active for Week 13 against the Colts.

Reed was got in limited practices on Wednesday and Thursday and was a full participant Friday. Reed was targeted seven times in Colt McCoy's only start this season. He'll share work with Niles Paul this time, but is still on the TE1 radar thanks to athletic upside. QB Kirk Cousins, WR Leonard Hankerson, WR Aldrick Robinson, RT Tyler Polumbus, RG Spencer Long, DE Stephen Bowen and CB E.J. Biggers have been declared inactive.

Jordan Reed (hamstring) is questionable for Week 13 against the Colts.

Reed practiced in full each and every day this week and is expected to return after missing Week 12. He's worth a dart-throw as a low-end TE1, but may not play his normal allotment of snaps. Niles Paul will also see action.
