Jordan Reed is dealing with a sprained thumb, but is expected to be ready Week 1.
It's unclear when Reed suffered the injury, but it was likely Saturday's preseason game, where he caught one pass for seven yards. Durability has been Reed's biggest question mark as a pro, but it's obviously a relief that he's not battling another concussion. There's no reason not to take the Redskins at their word that Reed will be ready for Week 1. Although he comes with risk, he's a high-reward TE1. Aug 25 - 2:56 PM

Jordan Reed had one catch for seven yards in Washington's third preseason game Saturday night.

Reed is having a quiet preseason, with just three catches for 27 yards. He remains a prime breakout candidate in Jay Gruden's offense, and should be no lower than the No. 3 option in the pass game. Reed is Rotoworld's No. 7 overall tight end. He currently has an ADP in the seventh round.

Jordan Reed stood out as "one of the best offensive players on the field" during the Redskins-Patriots joint practices.

Via ESPN Boston's Mike Reiss, this echoes a sentiment previously expressed by the Boston Globe. Reed's "talent is hard to miss," according to Reiss, who noted the sophomore tight end split Darrelle Revis and Devin McCourty on an impressive sideline out route. Reed offers huge upside if utilized correctly in new Redskins coach Jay Gruden's offense. Gruden's tight end production underwhelmed when he was the Bengals' offensive coordinator.

Jordan Reed has reportedly jumped out at the Redskins' joint-team practices with the Patriots.

This news isn't coming from a Redskins writer, either. It's from the Boston Globe's Ben Volin, who now believes Reed "is in line for a big season" after repeatedly burning an improved New England back seven in the scrimmages. Reed's concussion history is the lone real concern for his 2014 outlook. He is a plus athlete and the biggest member of an otherwise diminutive Skins pass-catching corps, which should lead to lots of red-zone opportunities for Reed.

Robert Griffin III believes Jordan Reed is "one of the most talented tight ends in the league."

"He's a guy that runs some of the best routes I've ever seen," RGIII continued. "Our offensive coordinator, Sean McVay, has said that you can't cover the guy. If (Reed) knows what he's doing, where he's going and he knows how he's trying to get there, you can't cover him." Reed is going to be a big part of the offense and has a chance to catch the second-most balls on the team, behind Pierre Garcon. The real concern with Reed is that he's a massive risk for concussions. He enters training camp as a mid-range TE1 with gobs of upside.

Redskins OC Sean McVay promises second-year TE Jordan Reed "is going to be a key player in our offense."

McVay spent 2013 as Washington's TEs coach, which can't hurt Reed's chances. "He’s an elite route runner for the position, and he still competes with the toughness," McVay said of Reed. "He’s got great feet, so he can cover guys up in the run game. I think what we’ll try to do with him will maximize his skillset. He’s done a great job this offseason, so he’s in position to have a great year."

Jordan Reed had "another eye-opening day" at Tuesday's minicamp practice.

Reed is over his latest concussion bout, practicing without issue and doing work. "Reed is going to be such a big part of this offense if he can stay healthy," said reporter Chris Russell. With DeSean Jackson running vertical routes up the sideline and Pierre Garcon attracting attention, the middle of the field is going to be wide open for the athletically gifted Reed. He's a mid-range TE1 with significant upside if you can stomach the injury risk.

Redskins second-year TE Jordan Reed has suffered four concussions including college and his rookie season in the NFL.

Reed only played three seasons at Florida, so it's four concussions in a four-year span. Reed conceded he hid a concussion sustained two weeks before the one that cut his rookie year seven games short. He also suffered two concussions at UF. "I was in a bad spot for a long time," Reed admitted, referring to last year. "I started to get a little scared after about two months – like, ‘Maybe I’m going to be like this forever,’ ... But it ended up going away." Concussions can become cumulative, meaning each one a player suffers causes more severe symptoms. Therefore, gaining medical clearance takes longer after several of them. Reed brings tons of upside into the 2014 season, but also substantial injury risk.
Jun 5 - 8:25 AM

Redskins coach Jay Gruden believes the addition of DeSean Jackson could benefit second-year TE Jordan Reed.

"We have, obviously, one of the more talented young tight ends in the NFL," Gruden said of Reed. "He’s going to be a great guy to help in the middle of the field. If people want to cloud DeSean and cloud Pierre (Garcon), (Reed) is going to be a guy that’s very much needed in the passing game." Gruden acknowledged some concern with Reed's injury history, but the upside here is appetizing. Reed is the No. 7 tight end off the board in early fantasy drafts. His Average Draft Position is in the middle of round seven. Reed, 24, is a prime breakout candidate.

Jordan Reed said he dealt with headaches and nausea for two months last season, and "wasn't completely honest" with the coaching staff early on.

Reed's injury first publicly surfaced in Week 11, but it sounds like he may have had issues before then. Reed also suffered a concussion at the University of Florida. Reed is now 100 percent, but another concussion could lead to a protracted absence.

Jordan Reed is participating fully in this week's minicamp.

Reed is fully cleared from the concussion that ended his rookie season and won't be held back in training camp or preseason. He remains a prime breakout candidate with the Redskins moving to a more pass-heavy offense under Jay Gruden. Reed finished with 45 catches, 499 yards, and three touchdowns despite missing the final six games of last year. He doesn't turn 24 until July.

The Redskins reportedly plan to fully capitalize on Jordan Reed's ability in the middle of the field.

Even before the DeSean Jackson acquisition, Jay Gruden and Sean McVay were drooling over Reed's impressive skill set. Jackson will only create more space between the hash marks for the 6'2/243 tight end. As the only pass-catcher with size on the roster, look for Robert Griffin III to target Reed heavily in the red zone and anytime he gets 1-on-1 with a linebacker. He remains in the top half of TE1s.
Apr 2 - 8:38 AM

Redskins coaches believe Jordan Reed will be an excellent target on deeper throws.

Now that Reed is fully cleared off his season-ending concussion, the new coaching regime is cooking up schemes to feature him. It's a no-brainer move after evaluating the highly athletic tight end's skill set on tape. Jay Gruden's pass-happy offense and desire to push the ball downfield leave Reed dripping with upside. His eight full games as a rookie projected to a 88-974-6 line.

The Washington Post reports Jordan Reed has fully recovered from the concussion symptoms that ended his rookie season and is back to training.

Reed should be full-go for the start of offseason workouts this spring. The new Redskins coaching staff reportedly "loves" Reed. Sean McVay, the Redskins' new OC, was Washington's tight ends coach in 2013. There's obviously some long-term concern surrounding Reed because of the amount of time it took him to recover, but he's going to enter summer as a mid-to-high TE1.

New Redskins OC Sean McVay reportedly "loves" Jordan Reed.

McVay would be crazy not to. During an eye-opening rookie season that was unfortunately cut short by a severe concussion, Reed flashed Aaron Hernandez quicks as a route-runner and Jimmy Graham kind of ability on goal-line fade routes. If we project his eight full games across a 16-game season, he comes out with 88 catches, 974 yards and six touchdowns -- numbers good enough to be fantasy's No. 6 tight end. Chris Russell of ESPN Radio spoke with Reed Wednesday and relays news that he's feeling very good and is headed to Florida to work out. Health permitting, Reed will easily be in the top half of TE1s in 2014 as a focal point of Jay Gruden's pass-happy scheme.
