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). Feb 22 - 10:03 AM

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.

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.

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.

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.

Jordan Reed (hamstring) practiced for the second straight day Thursday, getting in a limited session.

It would be nice to see Reed go "full" on Friday, but all signs point toward him returning against the Colts. Reed will be at risk of re-injury, but with tight end so thin, he's worth chucking up as a low-end TE1 if you've been dissatisfied with your recent options.

Jordan Reed (hamstring) says he'll play Week 13 against the Colts.

Reed got in a limited practice Wednesday, participating in individual drills. His Week 11 hamstring injury will end up costing him just one game. With Colt McCoy's insertion into the lineup, Reed makes for an interesting TE1 streaming option in a game the Redskins will likely be playing catch-up.

Jordan Reed (hamstring) participated in individual drills at Wednesday's practice.

Reed is making progress, but his status for Week 13 remains in question. His hamstrings have proven troublesome this season. If Reed can't play against the Colts, Niles Paul will make for an interesting streaming option in a game the Redskins will likely be playing from behind. Colt McCoy loves to pass in the intermediate areas of the field. Consider Reed highly questionable.

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.
Fri, Nov 21, 2014 12:51:00 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.
