Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed (concussion) has been ruled out for Monday night’s game.

Reed will now miss his third consecutive game to start the year, and it wouldn’t be a surprise if he missed all of September (or even beyond) at this point. Hopefully the former Pro Bowler can get cleared soon and have a productive season.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed (concussion) officially did not practice today.

Unfortunately for Reed, it’s difficult to see him playing on Monday night at this point. But we’ll see how he’s listed on the final injury report when it’s released tomorrow.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed (concussion) officially did not practice today.

It's the first official practice of the week for the Redskins, and there was optimism that Reed will be good for Monday night, but it's concerning that he's still dealing with the concussion suffered last month. Hopefully Reed is feeling better soon, but we'll keep you updated on his status the next couple of days.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 2.

There seemed to be optimism for Reed, but he’s still out this Sunday against the Cowboys. It’s concerning that Reed is still out from the concussion suffered a few weeks ago, and hopefully he’s feeling better soon. Vernon Davis is on the tight end streaming radar for Week 2.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed (concussion) remains limited in practice.

Reed is still in concussion protocol, but there's definite optimism that he'll get cleared in time for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. It'd be ideal if Reed can get cleared ahead of the final Week 2 injury report being released on Friday.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 1.

Reed was able to practice on a limited basis, so hopefully he is close to returning and can play next week. The Redskins will start Vernon Davis on Sunday in a tough matchup versus the Eagles, so he’s not a recommended streaming option.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed (concussion) is officially questionable for Week 1.

Reed remains in concussion protocol, but he's at least been able to practice on a limited basis this week, indicating he's close to getting cleared. The Redskins play in the early games on Sunday, so Reed’s status will be known by 11:30 AM ET on gameday.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed is in the concussion protocol.

This isn't surprising after Reed was evaluated for a concussion during last night's preseason game, and this is at least the fourth concussion of Reed's career, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The most important thing is that Reed feels better soon, but fantasy owners cannot count on him getting cleared for Week 1. We'll keep you updated, but this could be a length absence for a player with a history of concussions. Vernon Davis would have intriguing TE1 upside if forced into the starting role for the Redskins.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed is being evaluated for a concussion.

You don't want to see anyone get a concussion, but this is especially concerning because Reed has a history of concussions. We'll keep you updated, but if Reed does indeed have a concussion, his Week 1 status could certainly be in doubt with the Redskins' first game coming two weeks from Sunday.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed says he feels "more explosive" this year.

Reed has dealt with foot issues the previous three seasons, but he says: "My feet are definitely getting stronger, way stronger than last year. I feel more explosive, and I feel a lot better." The athletic tight end also said that he knows there are questions about him and that he has to answer them on the field rather than with his words. Reed has gotten positive reviews at the start of Redskins training camp, and this was his first offseason in three years without having to rehab an injury. Durability will remain a concern, but Reed is a major value with high upside that can be had at the end of almost all fantasy drafts.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

The Redskins placed Jordan Reed (ankle/foot) on injured reserve.

This has seemed like it was going to happen, but the Redskins were probably holding off in case they made the postseason and Reed was able to get healthy for a potential run. Reed's season ends with 54 receptions for 558 yards and two touchdowns in 13 games. The former Pro Bowl tight end didn't look to be 100% all season, but he appeared the his second-most games of his six-year career. Reed is still under contract for three more seasons, and he'll turn just 29 this offseason, but it wouldn't be surprising if the Redskins just cut him because of the injury issues he's had throughout his career. If Reed is 100% and can stay there, he'll still have solid upside as a TE1 option in 2019 fantasy drafts, but his injury concerns are about as high as any player in the league.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed (ankle/foot) is out for Week 15.

This was fully expected, as there's a chance Reed's season is over. The Redskins have yet to place him on injured reserve, though. Vernon Davis will be Washington's top tight end against Jacksonville on Sunday.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed (foot) has been downgraded to out against the Giants.

Reed has been ruled out to start the second half for Washington. He didn't have any receptions before leaving.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed (foot) is questionable to return against the Giants.

Reed limped off in a lot of pain, and he's now being called questionable to return to the game. We'll update you as more information becomes available on his status, but Vernon Davis will get an increased role with Reed out.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed caught four passes for 21 yards in Monday night's loss to the Eagles.

Reed was targeted five times, but it was a low-upside role as Colt McCoy (leg) left the game in the first half. Washington will need more out of their star tight end down the stretch to make the postseason under Mark Sanchez, but he needs to be downgraded in all formats heading into the fantasy playoffs. Reed takes on the Giants next Sunday.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed (back) is listed as questionable for Week 13.

Reed has been limited practice this week and is thought to be good to go for Monday night against the Eagles, but be sure to have a backup plan in case he does not play. Vernon Davis would be in the TE1 mix if Reed is out.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed catches six passes in Week 12.

Reed gained 75 yards on his six receptions against the Cowboys, as Colt McCoy showed confidence in the athletic tight end, targeting him eight times. At the end of the game, Reed took a clear helmet-to-helmet hit on a third down, but the officials did not call it. Anyway, this was a positive performance for Reed in McCoy's first start under-center after he caught a touchdown from him last week, so he's looking like a stronger TE1 option moving forward. Next week isn't an easy matchup against the Eagles, though.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed scores in Redskins' loss.

Reed caught a dime from Colt McCoy on a corner route against the Texans, which is a good sign for his status with McCoy at quarterback moving forward. Overall, Reed caught seven passes (on 11 targets) for 71 yards and a touchdown in what was his best statistical performance of the season to this point. However, Reed appeared to run the wrong route on a 101-yard pick-six by the Texans, and he simply stood there with his arms out instead of trying to hustle and make a tackle—which is basically unacceptable. It probably won't cause Reed to lose any playing time, though, so he's in the TE1 mix for Week 12 against Dallas.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed catches four passes in Week 10.

Reed gained 51 yards on his four receptions (team-high six targets) against Tampa Bay. This was Reed's highest receiving total since Week 3, so he remains a low-upside TE1 option for Week 11 against the Texans. He might breakout for a big game eventually, though.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed catches four passes in Week 9.

Reed gained 34 yards on his four reception in the Redskins' loss to the Falcons. Through eight games, Reed is on pace for 66 receptions, 680 yards, and two touchdowns. He seemingly isn't 100% and has been in and out of the lineup a bit during games, but he hasn't missed any games yet, which is a positive. Reed will look to do some damage next week against Tampa Bay.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed gets 12 targets in Week 8.

Reed's 12 targets were by far a team-high for the Redskins in their win against the Giants, but Reed caught seven passes for just 38 yards in the game. Reed has been under 45 yards in each of the last four games, and he doesn't have a touchdown since Week 1. Still, he's in the TE1 mix for Week 9 against the Falcons.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed catches two passes in Week 7.

Reed gained 43 yards on his two receptions, making a couple of key catches for 27 and 16 yards against the Cowboys. Reed hasn't scored since Week 1 and he doesn't appear to be playing a full slate of snaps, but he's in the TE1 mix next week against the Giants.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed caught five passes for 36 yards in Sunday's win over the Panthers.

Reed saw a team-high nine targets, but it was actually Vernon Davis that led the Redskins in yards (48) and scored on just three looks. That said, Reed is going to have a huge game eventually, and it could come next week against a Dallas defense that he ripped for a 10/95/2 line in 2016. Consider him a midrange, high-upside TE1 for Week 7.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed held to one reception in Week 5 loss.

It went for 21 yards and didn't occur until the game was basically in hand as the Saints handled Washington, 43-19. Interestingly, Reed didn't seem to be on the field much on the game's opening drive, and it wasn't until Vernon Davis (hamstring) went down that he became an every-down player. Through four games, the talented 28-year-old is on pace for a 60/756/4 line, and the Redskins probably need to get him more involved in the coming weeks. We'll see if that happens against the Panthers next Sunday.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed caught four passes for 65 yards in Sunday's win over Green Bay.

Reed was able to get wide open for a 34-yard gain over the middle on his biggest play of the game, and he combined with Vernon Davis (70 yards) to lead the team in receiving. Fantasy owners will need to look elsewhere for a TE1 with the Redskins heading into an early bye week, but Reed will be back on the TE1 map when he returns to face the Saints in a couple weeks on Monday Night Football.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed catches six passes in Redskins' loss.

Reed was targeted eight times against the Colts, gaining 55 yards on his six receptions. He also lost a fumble in the game. The good news is Reed remains healthy, and he'll be a TE1 option next week against the Packers.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed scores in Redskins’ win.

Reed was targeted five times in his first game with Alex Smith at quarterback, catching four passes for 48 yards and a touchdown. The score came on a pass in the flat that Reed dove for and rolled into the end zone for the touchdown. A healthy Reed is a TE1 option for Week 2 against Indy.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed says he feels "100 times better" this year.

Reed had surgery on both his big toes in the winter after playing in just six games last season, and he says it "feels like a 360 turnaround" from before. The Redskins tight end says that last year he couldn't run and could barely walk last July after  stem-cell shot didn't help him. For now, the Redskins are taking things slow with Reed, but it's positive that he's feeling a lot better; he should be a full participant sometime this summer. Currently going near the double-digit rounds of fantasy drafts, Reed looks like a good value pick in 2018.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed (toe) is expected to be 100% for training camp.

Redskins head coach Jay Gruden says Reed's rehab schedule is "on track" and that he thinks he'll be ready for training camp. Gruden also said Reed's "upper body strength is great," indicating that the Pro Bowl tight end has still been working out hard despite not being able to work his lower body like he would if he was 100%. We'll see what happens, but it would be great if Reed was ready to go when training camp rolls around. Remember, he has a new quarterback (Alex Smith) he must get chemistry with.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed (hamstring) has been placed on Injured Reserve.

Reed's disappointing injury-riddled season is now officially over. The Pro Bowl tight end appeared in only six games, catching 27 passes for 211 yards and two touchdowns. His reception total, yardage total, and yards per reception (7.8) were all career-lows. Frankly, the Redskins might decide to part ways with Reed if they can't rely on him being on the field, but he'll probably be back with Washington in 2018. Reed will carry obvious risk in fantasy drafts next year, but he also has a lot of upside and could end up being a steal, as he'll certainly be rated a lot lower than his ADP of around 50 overall this preseason.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 14.

This is Reed's sixth-straight missed game in what's become a bit of a lost season for him. Injuries have always been the concern with Reed, and those that spent a high fantasy pick on him this season haven't had it pay off heading into the fantasy playoffs. Vernon Davis will get another start, but he's a riskier option this week against a Chargers team that's defended tight ends well this season.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 13.

Reed didn't practice all week and will not play tomorrow night against the Cowboys. This is now the fifth-straight missed game for the athletic tight end, and those that spent an early-mid round fantasy pick on him have not gotten close to a return in value with the selection. Vernon Davis, who's had a Pro Bowl-caliber season, will continue to start for the Redskins and will be a solid TE1 option against Dallas.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed (hamstring) still isn't practicing.

The Redskins have another Thursday game after just playing on Thanksgiving, and not practicing today probably indicates Reed will have a tough time playing against Dallas. Tomorrow's practice won't really be close to a full practice—and he hasn't gotten reps in a few weeks—so the Redskins might go ahead and rule Reed out tomorrow when the official injury report is released.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed (hamstring) has been ruled out for tomorrow night.

Reed's hamstring injury isn't healed enough that he'll be able to play in the Thanksgiving game against the Giants. Vernon Davis will remain a very solid TE1 option and should be in most fantasy lineups. Consider Reed having a decent chance to play in Week 13 against the Cowboys, though it'll be another Thursday night matchup, meaning he only has about a week more of time to heal for the team's next game after tomorrow.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed (hamstring) did not practice today.

This was about as close to a practice the Redskins will have this week on a short week, and Reed wasn't able to get out there. He's unlikely to play on Thanksgiving night against the Giants, but we'll see how he's listed when the official injury report for the game is released tomorrow.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed (hamstring) will not play this week.

Reed has been ruled out ahead of the weekend, as the hamstring injury he's dealing with is a bad one. After suffering a setback last week, Reed didn't practice at all this week and should be considered questionable at best for Thanksgiving against the Giants.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed (hamstring) did not practice today.

He's looking doubtful for Sunday against the Saints, so expect Vernon Davis to make another start at tight end. Maybe Reed will practice tomorrow, though, so check back in tomorrow for the official injury report for the game to see how he's listed.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed (hamstring) did not practice today.

Reed is dealing with a pretty bad hamstring injury, but it's only Wednesday and there's a chance he is able to practice and then play this weekend. We'll monitor his practice status throughout the week, but for now, considering him unlikely to play this Sunday versus the Saints.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Redskins tight end Jordan Reed (hamstring) is inactive for Week 10.

Reed will miss his second game in a row, and Vernon Davis will get another start. The veteran tight end is a plug-and-play TE1 option despite the difficult matchup against Minnesota. Washington will hope to have Reed back for Week 11 versus the Saints.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed (hamstring) is not expected to play today, according to Ian Rapoport.

The official actives and inactives will be revealed at 11:30 AM ET ahead of the 1:00 PM ET game versus the Vikings, but it appears Reed will not be on the field while dealing with his hamstring injury. Check back in a few hours, but expect Reed to be out for a second straight game. Get ready to insert someone else into your fantasy lineup at tight end.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed (hamstring) is officially listed as questionable for Week 10.

Reed got in a limited practice on Wednesday and Thursday, but he was a non-participant today—which might not be a great sign for his availability on Sunday. Consider him less than 50/50 to play against the Vikings, but keep in mind Reed has played through injuries in the past. Just make sure you have someone ready to plug into your lineup in case Reed is out. Teammate Vernon Davis is the most obvious option if you have Reed on your team.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed (hamstring) was limited in practice again.

Two limited practices in a row shows there hasn't been a setback yet, so that's a positive sign. As of right now, it feels like Reed will try to get to game day and battle through the injury, but we'll see how he's listed tomorrow on the official injury report for the game.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed (hamstring) was limited in today's practice.

A limited participation is definitely a step in the right direction, as it's only Wednesday and Reed is out there. His practice status should be monitored throughout the week, but it appears Reed has a real shot of playing this Sunday versus Minnesota. Reed has toughed out injuries in that past, including a separated shoulder last season.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday against Seattle.

Reed wasn't able to practice all week, and the hamstring injury he's dealing with is presumably pretty bad. Vernon Davis will step up as the starter and is immediately a solid TE1 option, as he's been performing well all season and was putting up numbers even with Reed in the lineup. This is Reed's second missed game of the season, and he's just been banged up all season.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed (hamstring) did not practice today.

This is Reed's second-straight missed practice, and it remains very doubtful he plays this Sunday against Seattle. He might be ruled out when the official injury report for the game is released tomorrow.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed (hamstring) did not practice today.

Reed probably isn't going to play this week, but we'll keep an eye on his practice status over the next two days leading up to his official game status being released sometime Friday.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed leaves game with hamstring injury.

With under two minutes to go in the second half, Reed came up and grabbed his hamstring after running a route. He went over to the sideline and appeared to be getting looked at by a trainer, and it didn't look great. He's officially questionable to return, and this leaves the Redskins with only Vernon Davis as the healthy tight end, as Niles Paul is out after suffering a concussion earlier in the game. Reed had one reception for five yards so far in the game.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed scores twice against the Eagles on Monday night.

Reed started the game slow and again didn't look like himself, but he got going late in the game with the Redskins down and trying to stage a great comeback. Reed was targeted ten times in the game, grabbing eight passes for 64 yards and two touchdowns—one in the third and one in the fourth. These were Reed's first touchdowns of the season, so it's good to see him break out on the stat sheet after having under 150 yards entering the game. Reed gets Dallas in Week 8.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed catches four passes against the Niners.

Reed was targeted five times, gaining 37 yards on his four receptions. Vernon Davis has been playing better than Reed, who isn't 100% right now. Reed faces the Eagles on Monday night in Week 7.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed doesn't do much in Week 4.

Reed started off the game involved, but he sort of disappeared as the game went on. He caught three passes for 21 yards in the Redskins' loss. Injuries have been an issue for Reed this year, but he'll try to get going after the Redskins return from their Week 5 bye.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed (rib/sternum) is active for Monday Night Football.

Reed is back after missing one game, and he should be pretty close to 100%. You can insert him into your lineup if you were hoping for him to play tonight, but perhaps expectations should be tempered slightly against the Chiefs.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed (rib/sternum) is officially questionable for Monday night.

Reed was a limited participant in all three days of practice this week, so there's definitely a chance he plays. He'll probably be a game-time decision, so you'll need to make sure you have Vernon Davis on your bench ready to play in case Reed is inactive. Otherwise, you'll just have to play someone from the Sunday game to be safe.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed (rib, sternum) is inactive for Sunday Night Football.

This was the expectation after reports this morning of him being unlikely to play came out. Those that were hoping for Reed to be in the lineup should insert either Vernon Davis or Jared Cook into their tight end slot. Reed should be go for next Monday night against the Chiefs, but we'll know more during the week.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Redskins TE Jordan Reed (rib/sternum) is not expected to play tonight, according to Adam Schefter.

Schefter says Reed will be a game-time decision but it's more likely he doesn't play in the game. Those that would like to put Reed in their lineup could try to pick up Vernon Davis and use him in the event of Reed being inactive, which seems likely. Raiders tight end Jared Cook is also a good option from the Sunday night game, and Colts tight end Jack Doyle is one of the better targets from the early games.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Redskins TE Jordan Reed (rib/sternum) is questionable for Sunday Night Football.

Reed is a tough guy that played through a separated shoulder last season, so expect him to be out there against the Raiders. However, you need to make sure you have backup plans in case Reed is inactive for the game. Vernon Davis wouldn't be a bad option if Reed were to miss the game.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed (rib/sternum) was limited in practice today.

This is a good step forward as Reed tries to get ready for Sunday night against Oakland. Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said, "pain is becoming manageable...see how he does tomorrow." A full participation on Friday would be great, but he could still play with another limited session. He'll probably officially be listed as questionable when tomorrow's injury report for the game comes out.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed (chest) is day-to-day.

Reed left yesterday's game against the Rams and came back over to the sidelines in the second half with his pads in his hands. The Redskins tight end has played through worse things than this (his shoulder injury last season), and he'll likely be out there for Week 3 against Oakland.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed (chest) is out for Week 2.

Reed, who went to the locker room earlier, returned with his hands in his hands indicating he won't be playing for the rest of the game. Reed had six receptions for 48 yards before leaving the game and for now should be considered questionable for next Sunday night against Oakland.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed (chest) is questionable to return against the Rams.

Reed headed to the locker room at what at first looked like it could be because of his toe injury, but it's his chest. Hopefully he's able to return, as Washington is in a tight game with LA.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed gets targeted eight times in Week 1 against the Eagles.

Reed caught five of his eight targets for 36 yards. Philadelphia is a difficult matchup for tight ends, but Reed didn't really show off his athleticism like he normally does. There were reports Reed is still dealing with major issues from his toe, but he told FOX sideline reporter Kristina Pink before the game that he's fine. It's something to keep an eye on, but Reed gets the Rams next Sunday.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed makes 2017 preseason debut.

After missing most of the preseason with a toe injury, Reed—who was recently taken off the PUP—played in the Redskins' third preseason game against the Bengals. He had two receptions for 12 yards, but the most important thing was to see him out there and healthy. Reed offers a lot of upside and is worth a selection as one of the top tight ends in all fantasy drafts.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed might play in Washington's preseason game on Sunday.

Head coach Jay Gruden was asked about Reed and linebackers Junior Galette and Ryan Anderson playing in the Redskins' third exhibition, answering: "They're going to suit up in pregame and we'll see where they are," while adding Reed looks "good." It sounds like there's a good chance Reed is out there against the Bengals, but he'll be a great TE1 selection in your fantasy draft even if he doesn't play.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

The Redskins activated Jordan Reed from PUP.

Washington's athletic tight end was dealing with a toe injury that kept him on the PUP from the start of training camp. The team never sounded too concerned about Reed, but it's still a great sign that he's off the PUP and can now practice. He might play in this week's third preseason game as the team prepares for the regular season; and if there was any question about Reed being ready for Week 1, that can be put to bed. Reed is an obvious top-five TE1 as Kirk Cousins' most trusted target.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jay Gruden says Jordan Reed's visit to a specialist yesterday didn't reveal anything "earth-shattering."

Gurden said "everything looked pretty good" from the visit, but they still aren't sure when Reed will be back. Gruden also said he hopes he's back for the first game (it's unclear if he meant first preseason game or for the regular season), but they aren't going to rush him back until he's 100%, while adding it could be next week—they don't know. It's probably safe to say the tight end will be back well for the regular season, but Kirk Cousins fantasy outlook takes a hit if he isn't.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed is going to see a specialist about his toe injury.

Redskins Head coach Jay Gruden just announced this, adding that there is no timetable for Reed's return yet. Obviously, this is not great news for the Redskins' Pro Bowl tight end, but hopefully he receives some good news from the specialist. Toe injuries can be tricky and keep players out for extended periods of time, but we'll see. You shouldn't be drafting until later this month, but those drafting early should select Vernon Davis as a handcuff if they are drafting Jordan Reed early.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Redskins head coach Jay Gruden says Reed may has twisted an ankle overcompensating for his toe injury.

So not an ideal start to training camp for Reed, as Gruden also said his toe started bothering him two weeks ago. Reed is one of the best tight ends in the league—fantasy and otherwise—when he's on the field, but he's had an assortment of injuries throughout his career. It sounds like this shouldn't impact his regular season status, but it's a reminder that Reed carries some risk in fantasy drafts, and he might be the rare tight end you should handcuff in an explosive Washington offense. Reed is currently going as high as the third round for early drafters.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Redskins tight end Jordan Reed is starting training camp on the PUP list.

Reed is dealing with a toe issue, and the Redskins are probably being cautious with him. He can be taken off the PUP at any time. Health is the biggest concern with Reed, but he should put up big numbers when on the field. With DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon gone, Reed might be relied upon more by quarterback Kirk Cousins this season. Reed is currently a consensus top three tight end along with Rob Gronkowski and Travis Kelce.

Jordan Reed catches touchdown in Redskins season finale.

Reed had five catches for 40 yards and a touchdown on a slant route at the goal line against the Giants. He ends his season with 66 receptions for 686 yards and six touchdowns in 12 games. Obviously, Reed was limited towards the end of the season with his shoulder injury, which put a dent in his production. He should have a bounce back season, but health has always been a concern for Reed. Regardless, draft him as an easy top five option at TE in 2017 fantasy drafts.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed (shoulder) is active for the Redskins.

Reed is a risky play, with conflicting reports of whether or not his shoulder injury is improving or not.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed (shoulder) is out for the Redskins.

He would have been very limited if active anyway. Vernon Davis will be a solid TE1 in Reed's absence.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed gets ejected for throwing a punch.

Reed threw a jab at Panthers safety Kurt Coleman in the second half of the game. After he threw the punch, Reed squared up (while wearing his helmet and pads) like he was going to try to fight the entire Panthers defense. Reed was ejected from the game. He had as many punches thrown as catches (one for six yards) and is definitely limited by his separated shoulder. He will likely play next week, but is very hard to trust at this point.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed (shoulder) doesn't do much in first game back.

Reed had only one target, which he caught for ten yards. Obviously limited by his separated shoulder, Reed will be hard to trust next week against the Panthers as a great fantasy option.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed (shoulder) is active for the Redskins.

Reed returns after missing one game. He is a great option at TE, even in a tough matchup against the Eagles.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed (shoulder) listed as questionable.

Reed is probably going to tough it out and play through the shoulder injury against the Eagles. If he plays, he'd be a good boost to the Redskins offense. Reed would be a great TE1, despite a difficult matchup with the Eagles.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed (shoulder) practices limited on Thursday.

That's two straight limited practices for Reed after missing last Sunday's game against Arizona, and Reed seems determined to get on the field for his team. The Redskins are making a playoff push and could really use Reed. He'll likely be listed as questionable, and the Redskins kick off at 1:00 PM ET, so you'll be able to wait until then. Check back on his practice status tomorrow.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed (shoulder) is out this Sunday against Arizona.

After toughing it out against the Cowboys on Thanksgiving, Reed will not be able to play this week and should be considered week-to-week for a Redskins team making a playoff push. Vernon Davis will step in as an every week TE1, including this week in a tough matchup against the Cardinals.

Jordan Reed | Redskins TE

Jordan Reed (shoulder) is not expected to play this Sunday against the Cardinals, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Reed didn't practice for the second straight day today. If Reed can't go, Vernon Davis would become an immediate solid TE1, despite a matchup with the Cardinals defense that is stingy against opposing tight ends.

Jordan Reed (shoulder) is not practicing Wednesday for the Redskins.

He was in practice attire but is not practicing. He wasn't expected to practice after suffering a Grade 3 AC separation on Thanksgiving. It's only Wednesday and we expect Reed to play in a huge game against the Cardinals this Sunday, even if he doesn't practice all week. Vernon Davis would be an excellent TE option if Reed can't go.

Jordan Reed leaves game, comes back to score twice against the Cowboys.

Reed left with a shoulder injury and his arm was in a sling at one point, but Reed toughed it out and returned to help his team get back in the game. Reed had ten catches for 95 yards and two touchdowns. He should be good to go next Sunday after returning to the game. He'll be more of a mid-range TE1 against the stingy Cardinals pass defense next week.

Jordan Reed caught five passes for 79 yards in Sunday night’s win over the Packers.

Reed is hurting with Jamison Crowder’s emergence, but remains one of the better fantasy tight ends. In their Week 2 meeting, Reed caught five passes for 70 yards versus Dallas; he gets them again on Thanksgiving.

Reed catches two passes in Week 10.

He had two catches for 41 yards in the Redskins win over the Vikings. Reed hasn't been quite what fantasy owners that drafted him with a top three round pick expected, but that can change. He's still been a solid TE1, and could have a huge game this Sunday night against the Packers. Remember, the Redskins offense, including Reed, really started to explode toward the end of last season.
