Jordan Reed (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 12 against the 49ers.
Niles Paul will get the start and handle pass-catching duties with fellow TE Logan Paulsen chipping in as a blocker. Paul is a dart-throw TE2 at a position lacking any sort of depth behind Rob Gronkowski, Jimmy Graham, and Antonio Gates. Nov 21 - 12:51 PM

Jordan Reed (hamstring) remained sidelined at Friday's practice.

He's unlikely to play Week 12 against the 49ers, leaving Niles Paul atop the depth chart at tight end. Paul would make for an interesting dart-throw in daily leagues.

Jordan Reed (hamstring) is not practicing again Thursday.

The oft-injured Reed pulled his right hamstring in last week's loss to the Bucs. A left hamstring pull earlier this season cost him four games. There's no word on the severity of this injury, but given his history and his inability to practice we'd consider him extremely questionable for Sunday's game at San Francisco right now. If Reed sits, desperate owners can turn to backup Niles Paul. Paul averaged 4.5 catches for 58.2 yards with one touchdown during that four-game stretch as a starter.

Jordan Reed (hamstring) is not practicing Wednesday.

It's not a good sign for his Week 12 status. Reed missed four games earlier this season with a left hamstring issue, and has a history of slow recovery from injuries. Fantasy owners should have other plans in place. Reed's status will be updated again Thursday.
Nov 19 - 1:28 PM

Jordan Reed strained his right hamstring in Sunday's loss to the Bucs.

It's notable because it was a left hamstring pull that cost Reed four games earlier this season. Still, his status for Week 12 is murky as this is an oft-injured player who has proven slow to recover from soft-tissue injuries before. Owners can add insurance in Niles Paul, who averaged 4.5 catches for 58.2 yards with one touchdown during that aforementioned four-game stint as the starter.
Nov 18 - 9:58 AM

Speaking Monday, Redskins coach Jay Gruden confirmed Jordan Reed came away from Sunday's loss with a hamstring issue.

However, Gruden was extremely short on details. It's unclear if it's the same hamstring that sidelined Reed earlier this season, or if his status is in doubt for Week 12. For now, owners need to assume Reed won't play, but we should get a better idea of his status when the Redskins return to practice on Wednesday.
Nov 17 - 3:19 PM

The Redskins listed Jordan Reed on their Week 11 post-game injury report with a hamstring issue.

We didn't notice any issues with Reed during the game and beat writers made no mention of an injury afterward. But it's still notable as the oft-injured Reed battled a nasty hamstring pull earlier this season. It's unclear if this is related.
Nov 16 - 9:24 PM

Jordan Reed had two catches for 22 yards in Sunday's Week 11 loss to the Bucs.

Reed has been targeted just four times by Robert Griffin III the last two weeks. He was one of Griffin's favorite options last year, but is being used less in Jay Gruden's offense. Reed loses snaps to Niles Paul on running plays and does the majority of his work on third downs. He'll be just a back-end TE1 against the 49ers in Week 12.
Nov 16 - 5:43 PM

Jordan Reed had one catch for 17 yards in Sunday's Week 9 loss at Minnesota.

Reed did draw a defensive holding penalty on a sideline route, but was officially credited with just one target. It's very strange usage in Robert Griffin III's first game back, and not something we'd expect to turn into a trend. The Redskins desperately need Reed's ability to win 1-on-1 matchups in the middle of the field. He'll be a low-end TE1 against the Bucs when the Redskins come out of their bye.
Nov 2 - 5:28 PM

Jordan Reed caught seven passes for 40 yards in the Redskins' Week 8 win over the Cowboys.

A PPR victory, but not much else. Reed tied for the team lead with seven targets, but didn't do anything post-catch. His best grab of the night was a stratal-esque 16-yard connection between he and Colt McCoy in overtime where McCoy floated a fall-away pass to Reed, who toe-tapped on the sideline. Reed is a special talent with much better games to come. He's an every-week TE1. The Vikings are next.
Oct 28 - 12:47 AM

Jordan Reed caught 5-of-6 targets for 54 yards in Washington's Week 7 win over the Titans.

Reed looked slippery and healthy, but was hampered by the Redskins' poor quarterback play. Reed is now up to 13 catches for 146 yards since returning from his hamstring injury in Week 6, and has quickly re-established himself as an every-week TE1. Robert Griffin III's (ankle) looming return will only help Reed further.
Oct 19 - 6:28 PM

Jordan Reed is not listed on the Week 7 injury report.

In his first game off a Week 1 hamstring pull, Reed lit up the Cardinals for 8-92-0 while playing 53.8 percent of the snaps. It appears he emerged without any issues whatsoever. Reed, a dominator of 1-on-1 matchups, will be a solid TE1 against the Titans Sunday.
Oct 16 - 10:36 AM

Making his return from a Week 1 hamstring pull, Jordan Reed played on 35-of-65 snaps (53.8 percent) in Sunday's loss at Arizona.

Niles Paul played on 32 snaps as Reed was eased back into action. The athletic seam-stretcher still dominated the box score, going 8-92-0 on a team-high 11 targets. Paul had just 1-7-0 on two targets, proving just how wide the gap is here. Reed's playing time should continue to grow toward 70 percent or so, making him a mid-range TE1 weekly.
Oct 13 - 9:58 AM

Jordan Reed secured 8-of-11 targets for 92 yards in the Redskins' Week 6 loss to the Cardinals.

Making his return from a Week 1 hamstring tear, Reed looked spry while working in frequent two-tight end sets alongside Niles Paul. He was the clearly-preferred passing-game option to Paul, seeing a team-high 11 targets. Although Jay Gruden involved the tight end sparingly in his Cincinnati offenses, he's utilizing the tight ends voluminously in D.C. With Reed back healthy, he'll resume TE1 value in Week 7 against Tennessee.
Oct 12 - 8:48 PM

Jordan Reed (hamstring) has been cleared to play Week 6 against the Cardinals.

Reed hasn't played since the opener. He has a great matchup this Sunday against Arizona, but usage and snap count is the concern, especially with Niles Paul playing well as a pass catcher in Reed's absence. Reed's a high-risk TE1.
