Jordan Reed (toe) said he hopes to return next week.
"It feels great," Reed said of his troublesome toe. "It’s starting to get way better now. I’m just making sure I can do everything I can in my power to make sure it’s comfortable when I do get back on the field." The tight end also thinks he will be ready to play in at least one of the preseason games, but he admits that is "up to the coaches and training staff." Reed's injury history is a major concern, but he has the upside to pay off his TE4 draft slot. Aug 14 - 8:43 AM

Jordan Reed said the special new cleats and orthotics he's tried out have made a "big difference" for his sprained big toe.

"I'll be out there shortly," said Reed, who remains on active/PUP. It still sounds like Reed is merely day to day, and the Redskins are playing it safe by keeping him out of practice. Getting Reed camp reps isn't a big priority.

Jordan Reed (toe) had a special orthotics made for his left cleat.

Dealing with a toe injury since last year, Reed will try out the new footwear for the next couple of days to see if it helps. Coach Jay Gruden said the team will reevaluate the situation after their second preseason game next weekend, strongly suggesting Reed will be sidelined until at least then. It remains likely the tight end is back on the field before Week 1, but this issue along with his injury history makes Reed a risky investment in the fifth round.

Jordan Reed's toe injury has been bothering him since last season.

Reed's toe was apparently an issue "all last year and into the offseason." He said it was beginning to feel better until he underwent a stem-cell treatment following minicamp. "That kind of flared it up a bit on me," Reed said. "Now I'm just letting it calm down before I get out there." Speaking about his recovery timeline, Reed said he's "just gotta take my time, let it heal and strengthen up, then get back out there." It wouldn't be surprising if Reed was held out for the entire preseason.
Aug 3 - 7:01 PM

Jordan Reed (toe/ankle) sounds day to day after his checkup with Dr. Robert Anderson in North Carolina.

Anderson is a foot doctor who does a ton of surgeries each year. On Wednesday, coach Jay Gruden said "nothing earth shattering" came of Reed's visit to Anderson, and the Skins anticipate Reed returning as soon as "next week," or perhaps after their preseason opener. For now, at least, Reed appears to have dodged a bullet. He remains one of fantasy's biggest injury risks.
Aug 2 - 3:19 PM

Jordan Reed saw a specialist for his toe injury on Wednesday, and is without a timetable for a return.

The doctor's visit was a "follow up." Coach Jay Gruden said Reed was day to day, but intimated it was more week to week. It's not exactly good news after the 'Skins insisted last week that the issue was not serious. Reed is beginning to appear likely to miss preseason games. Ever the injury risk, the Redskins will not rush Reed's return.
Aug 1 - 2:50 PM

Speaking Thursday, Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Jordan Reed (toe) "may have twisted an ankle" overcompensating for his toe issue.

In other words, Reed twisted an ankle overcompensating for his toe issue. Reed has dealt with ankle ailments in the past, but they haven't been one of his signature issues. The Redskins have said Reed will miss only a week of camp, but that seems unlikely. The 'Skins have zero reason to push the envelope with their star tight end.
Jul 27 - 4:03 PM

The Redskins insist Jordan Reed's big toe injury is not serious.

Reed's toe has apparently been bothering him for a "couple" of weeks, but coach Jay Gruden expects him to be sidelined "only a week or so." Toe injuries can be extremely tricky to recover from. It's possible the Redskins exercise the utmost of caution and hold Reed out through the first few preseason games, if not the entire exhibition slate.
Jul 27 - 2:55 PM

ESPN's Dianna Russini reports coaches are "not too concerned about Jordan Reed's big toe injury."

Russini also said Reed is "expected to be back during (the) preseason." This is great news after Reed was surprisingly put on the active/PUP to list to start training camp. Arguably the most important receiving option for quarterback Kirk Cousins, it's vital for the Redskins passing attack for Reed to be healthy.
Jul 27 - 12:38 PM

Redskins placed TE Jordan Reed (toe) on the active/PUP list.

Reed is dealing with "pain and soreness" in his big toe, and is "undergoing further evaluation," per ESPN's John Keim. It sounds like a minor issue, but the Redskins are playing it safe given Reed's injury history. Reed will be reevaluated later this week to determine whether he'll be cleared to practice.
Jul 26 - 5:35 PM

Kirk Cousins has a 121.4 quarterback rating when targeting Jordan Reed over the past two seasons.

That's on 201 attempts. Even on a small-sample size, that's a jaw-dropping number. Speaking earlier this offseason, coach Jay Gruden said "the offense runs through" Reed. Even with his health an ever-present question, Reed is an excellent pick at his current 48.4 ADP.
Jul 25 - 4:54 PM

According to CSN Mid-Atlantic's JP Finlay, Jordan Reed looked "dominant" at the first day of Redskins minicamp Tuesday.

Reed skipped OTAs, so this was really the first the team has seen of him since Week 17. Reed severely injured his shoulder on Thanksgiving last season, which probably played a key role in the Redskins missing the playoffs. He was never 100 percent the remainder of the way but was able to avoid surgery. Even with the addition of big-bodied Terrelle Pryor and return to health of Josh Doctson, the offense is still expected to primarily run through Reed.
Jun 13 - 9:49 PM

Redskins coach Jay Gruden said "the offense runs through" Jordan Reed.

Gruden made the comment after being asked about losing both DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon. Washington did a good job retooling by drafting Josh Doctson last year and signing Terrelle Pryor, but Reed's ability to stay healthy will determine how good the offense can be. Reed caught 66 passes for 686 yards and six touchdowns in just 12 games last season, but he has not played more than 14 games in his career. He is a high-upside, high-risk fantasy asset.
Mar 30 - 11:27 AM

Jordan Reed caught 5-of-6 targets for 40 yards and a touchdown in the Redskins' Week 17 loss to the Giants.

Reed looked the healthiest he's been since injuring his shoulder on Thanksgiving. The touchdown, his sixth of the year, was also his first since Turkey Day. Reed was flat dominant when healthy this season, but "when healthy" remains the caveat for the gifted but injury-prone 26 year old. He's a high-upside, high-risk TE1 in Dynasty leagues. Reed is signed in Washington through 2021. There's been no indication he'll require shoulder surgery.
Jan 1 - 7:58 PM

Jordan Reed (shoulder) is active for Week 17 against the Giants.

Reed probably won't look as limited as he did in Weeks 14 and 15, but remains well short of 100 percent. A snap count is likely, though his snaps should come on third down and in the red zone. He's an expensive dart throw in DFS leagues.
