Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Monday that Jordan Reed (hamstring) must practice "at least a day" this week to play in Week 3 against the Eagles.
We presume Gruden would have expressed more optimism if he thought Reed had a chance to play. Regardless, it's good news that the notion of Reed practicing at all this week is on the table. If Reed returns, Week 2 breakout TE Niles Paul's snaps would likely take a major hit. Reed appears to be day to day. Sep 15 - 3:21 PM

Redskins declared Jordan Reed (hamstring) inactive for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

The oft-injured Reed is very questionable for Week 3 after pulling his hamstring in Week 1. Logan Paulsen gets the start, but Niles Paul will handle the pass-catching packages and is the desperation TE2 candidate. The rest of the Redskins inactives: LB Akeem Jordan, CB Tracy Porter, WR Santana Moss, G Spencer Long, DL Kedric Golston and QB Colt McCoy.

Jordan Reed (hamstring) remained sidelined Thursday.

Reed isn't playing against the Jaguars. He's week to week, and should be considered questionable for Week 3. Fill-in Niles Paul is off the fantasy radar.
Sep 11 - 1:44 PM

Coach Jay Gruden says Jordan Reed's hamstring strain is "minor."

Gruden left the door slightly open for Reed to play Sunday against the Jaguars, but ultimately said there's "little chance" he suits up. It sounds like Reed is more day-to-day than week-to-week. Consider him questionable for Week 3. Logan Paulsen and athletic Niles Paul will handle the tight end duties this week.

Robert Griffin III told the media Wednesday that Jordan Reed (hamstring) will not play Week 2 against the Jaguars.

As expected. "He's a big loss, a great player," RGIII said. Reed's status beyond Week 2 remains up in the air. Coach Jay Gruden said Monday that Reed would be sidelined "some time." Logan Paulsen will be called on to block in Week 2, while Niles Paul is expected to play a bigger role in the passing game. The Jaguars were shredded by tight ends in 2013 and gave up a 6-91-1 line to Eagles tight ends last Sunday. It's a tough game for Reed owners to miss out on.

A source tells ESPN's John Keim that Jordan Reed's (hamstring) absence may not be long.

Keim admitted he's "still uncertain" about how much time Reed might miss. Speaking Monday, coach Jay Gruden said Reed would be sidelined "some time," suggesting a week-to-week timetable. Owners shouldn't be counting on Reed for Week 2. His status will be updated when the Redskins return to practice on Wednesday.
Sep 9 - 4:52 PM

Speaking Monday, Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Jordan Reed (hamstring) could be sidelined "some time."

In the same breath, Gruden characterized the injury as "mild," but it sounds like Reed is dealing with a week-to-week injury. That means fantasy owners shouldn't expect him to be active for Week 2, and that Logan Paulsen will get the start for Washington. Reed is worth holding onto in 12-14 team leagues, but his injury history is becoming increasingly ominous. His status will be updated no later than the Redskins' Wednesday return to practice.
Sep 8 - 3:09 PM

Jordan Reed will have an MRI on his hamstring.

Reed tried to hurdle a defender early in Sunday's Week 1 loss at Houston and pulled a muscle. Afterward, coach Jay Gruden called the injury a legit concern. It's another injury for Reed, who has battled all kinds of ailments dating back to his days at Florida. Owners should begin making other plans for Week 2.
Sep 7 - 6:19 PM

Jordan Reed (hamstring) left Sunday's Week 1 game against the Texans in the first half and is done for the day.

Reed went high to hurdle a defender on a 4-yard reception, but got crunched and his legs bent the wrong way. He quickly grabbed for his hamstring and slowly made his way to the trainer's table. The Redskins have Logan Paulsen as their No. 2 TE behind the oft-injured Reed.
Sep 7 - 1:47 PM

Jordan Reed (thumb) is active for Sunday's Week 1 game against the Texans.

Reed's sprained thumb is not expected to limit him at all Sunday. He's our No. 9 tight end this week, but does bring plenty of upside thanks to unique athletic ability. Santana Moss is a healthy scratch for the first time in his career. The rest of the Redskins' inactives: Colt McCoy, Tracy Porter, Akeem Jordan, Spencer Long, Frank Kearse and Morgan Moses.
Sep 7 - 11:42 AM

Jordan Reed (thumb, questionable) and Brian Orakpo (ankle, questionable) are both fully expected to play Sunday against the Texans.

There was never really any doubt despite the "Q" tags. Reed has a tough matchup with Texans ILB Brian Cushing back healthy and safeties Kendrick Lewis and D.J. Swearinger roaming the back end. He's our No. 9 TE play.
Sep 7 - 8:35 AM

ESPN Redskins reporter John Keim thinks TE Jordan Reed could lead the team in receptions.

"He's an excellent target in multiple situations -- third downs, red zone, early downs -- because of his size and athleticism," said Keim. "I'd expect Reed or Pierre Garcon to lead in receptions." Reed certainly has the upside to be a big contributor for the Redskins' offense, but his health is a concern. Including college, Reed has suffered four concussions in the last four seasons, and missed the final seven games of 2013 with a head injury. The injury concerns are real, but Reed has high-end TE1 upside if he can stay on the field.
Sep 6 - 10:27 AM

Jordan Reed (thumb) practiced fully again Friday, but is listed as questionable on the injury report.

The same goes for OLB Brian Orakpo (questionable, ankle). Despite the "Q" tags, both Reed and Orakpo are expected to play Sunday against Houston.
Sep 5 - 2:45 PM

Jordan Reed (thumb) remained "full" in Thursday's practice.

He's good to go for Sunday's opener. Reed opens the year a low-end TE1 with room to ascend.
Sep 4 - 5:23 PM

Jordan Reed (thumb) practiced in full Wednesday.

Reed is dealing with a sprained thumb, but remains on track for Week 1. He's a low-end TE1 for Sunday's matchup against the Texans.
