Jordan Reed handled six-of-eight targets for 55 yards Sunday in the Redskins’ Week 2 loss to the Colts.
He went most of the first half without drawing a target, finally getting a look from Alex Smith with six minutes to go in the second quarter. Reed came through with five catches for 51 yards after halftime but also committed a costly fumble in the fourth quarter that essentially handed Indy the game. The 28-year-old has always been a productive player when healthy and that should continue to be the case next week when the Redskins host Green Bay at FedEx Field. Sep 16 - 5:03 PM

Jordan Reed corralled four-of-five targets for 48 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Redskins’ Week 1 win over the Cardinals.

All four catches came in the first half, including a four-yard touchdown grab with eight seconds remaining in the second quarter. That marked Reed’s first end-zone visit since Week 7 of last year, when he broke out for two touchdowns in a loss to Philadelphia. Reed likely would have done more damage had this been a competitive game, but with Washington running circles around the overmatched Cardinals, there was no reason to air it out in the second half. Finally healthy (knock on wood) after an injury-plagued 2017 campaign, the former Florida Gator is safe to pencil in as a TE1 next week in a mouth-watering matchup against the Colts.
Sep 9 - 8:18 PM

Coach Jay Gruden said Jordan Reed is "in great shape" and will play Week 1 against the Cardinals.

Neither Reed nor Chris Thompson are on the Week 1 injury report as the practice week kicks off. Both will play Sunday and be fixtures on offense. Reed is a back-end TE1 with upside, while Thompson is a solid RB3/FLEX.
Sep 5 - 3:00 PM

Redskins coach Jay Gruden confirmed Monday that Jordan Reed is "on pace" for Week 1.

Reed was held out of the entire preseason as the Skins put him in bubble wrap with Week 1 always being the goal. Even as he remains one of the NFL's biggest injury risks, Reed will be a top-eight TE1 play on Opening Day in Arizona.
Aug 27 - 4:35 PM

Jordan Reed did not play in the Redskins' third preseason game.

It is concerning Reed has yet to play in the preseason, but Washington is likely just trying to keep their injury-prone weapon healthy for the real games. Everything out of camp has suggested Reed is healthy, and he has demonstrated overall TE1 upside when on the field. That makes him worth a pick in the ninth round, but it is a classic risk-reward proposition.
Aug 24 - 8:16 PM

Jordan Reed says he is still catching up with his conditioning in Redskins training camp.

Reed didn't start running until a month before camp, and said he's still looking for "more burst, quickness and speed." Reed did say he feels good overall. "The only thing I have to work on is that burst," Reed said. "I've still got a lot of strengthening to do, explosive work to back to my full potential." Now 28, it's possible Reed never fully regains the burst he's looking for. He has dealt with so many injuries. But even a slightly-diminished Reed would still be a huge weapon for the Redskins if he is back to 100 percent health.
Aug 6 - 2:17 PM

Jordan Reed says he feels "100 times better" than he did in 2017.

"I had pain all season, all offseason, and that pain was shutting down certain parts of the body that I needed," Reed said of his injury-ruined 2017. "So you remove the pain and now I'm building my body back up and feeling great again." Reed is being eased into camp, but he should be as healthy as he's been in some time for Week 1. Headed into his sixth season, Reed will be aiming to appear in more than 12 games for just the second time.

The Redskins are expected to "ease" Jordan Reed (toe) into training camp as a precaution.

Reed missed the majority of last year with a nagging toe injury. He's been cleared to practice and avoided the active/PUP list, but the Redskins aren't taking any chances with their brittle star tight end. LT Trent Williams (knee surgery) will also be eased into camp. Reed carries high-end TE1 upside, though durability concerns limit his fantasy appeal.
Jul 25 - 9:53 AM

NBC Washington reports the Redskins may look to get out of Jordan Reed's contract next offseason.

Reed has three years remaining on his five-year extension. He's one of the best tight ends in the league when on the field, but the Redskins can't afford another injury-prone year after he missed 14-of-32 games the last two seasons. Washington can save $6-plus million in cap space from moving on from Reed next offseason. With tight-end friendly Alex Smith replacing Kirk Cousins, there's potential for a mid-career rebound if Reed stays healthy. Reed was limited at OTAs but is expected to be ready for training camp.
Jun 30 - 6:15 PM

According to ESPN Redskins reporter John Keim, Jordan Reed (toe) participated in agility drills at Wednesday's OTA session.

Per Keim, Reed looked "fine" while doing the side-field drills. He's not participating in team work after missing most of last season with injuries and then needing surgery on his toes after the year. Reed is incredibly difficult to trust but remains one of the premier Tier 2 fantasy options at a weak position.
May 30 - 12:15 PM

Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Jordan Reed had a "procedure done on his toes."

It explains why he is not expected to participate in OTAs. Reed ended the season on injured reserve because of a hamstring issue, but he was limited by a toe problem during training camp last year. Hopefully this procedure fixes the issue for good, but even if it does, Reed will remain one of the biggest injury risks in fantasy. The tight end has never played more than 14 games in a season.

Apr 3 - 9:48 AM

Redskins coach Jay Gruden does not expect Jordan Reed (hamstring) to participate in OTAs.

Reed ended last season on injured reserve because of a hamstring injury, but that issue should have healed by now, suggesting he underwent some kind of surgery. He missed time last August because of a lingering toe issue. Reed was limited to six games last season.
Mar 27 - 7:44 AM

Redskins placed TE Jordan Reed on injured reserve with a hamstring injury, ending his season.

It's the only logical end to what was a lost 2017 for the would-be star tight end. Always injured, Reed was limited to a career-low six games. Reed reported to camp with a toe injury that had been bothering him since 2016. Things went downhill from there as he battled shoulder, chest and hamstring ailments, amongst others. When Reed was on the field during his age-27 campaign, he was ineffective, averaging a fullback-like 7.8 yards per catch. Signed through 2021, Reed will head into 2018 having averaged 10 games across five NFL seasons.

Redskins declared WR Maurice Harris, WR Robert Davis, S Montae Nicholson, G Kyle Kalis, C Chase Roullier, TE Jordan Reed, and DL Terrell McClain inactive for Week 14 against the Chargers.

With Reed out, TE Vernon Davis remains a viable streaming option despite struggling as of late.
Sun, Dec 10, 2017 02:55:00 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Jordan Reed (hamstring) will not play Week 14 against the Chargers.

It's good to get this out of the way early in the week, so we can concentrate on things that actually matter as Reed hasn't practiced or played in weeks. Vernon Davis has been a total bust the past two weeks but will remain on the streaming radar against L.A, while Niles Paul will also stay involved.
