Reed held out Wednesday | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday.  The team hasn't provided much info on his status, but he's obviously in danger of missing this weekend's game against the 49ers.  Remember that Reed missed 4 games earlier this season with a bum hammy (although it was the opposite hammy).  Niles Paul will serve as Washington's pass-catching TE if Reed can't play Sunday, but he'd be tough to trust considering how poorly QB Robert Griffin played last week.

Washington on Thursday released TE Jordan Reed. The move saves the team $8.5 million off the 2020 salary cap. Reed, of course, didn't play a single game in 2019. He appeared in just 65 of a possible 96 contests over his previous 6 campaigns. With Reed gone and Vernon Davis retired, Washington figures to address TE this offseason. Jeremy Sprinkle led Washington TEs with 40 targets and 26 receptions in 2019.

TE Jordan Reed has cleared the league's concussion protocol, according to The Athletic's Ben Standig. He sustained his 7th reported concussion last August and missed the entire 2020 season. Washington is expected to release him and save $8.5 million against the cap, but Reed hopes to sign and play elsewhere. We'll see how free agency treats him. Reed turns 30 in July.

The Redskins have placed TE Jordan Reed (concussion) on IR. He could be reactivated in Week 14, but there's no reason for Washington to bring him back in a lost season. Reed can safely be dropped from all redraft rosters.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion) is out for Sunday’s game against the Giants. There’s still no timetable for his return. TE Vernon Davis has totaled just 59 scoreless yards over the past 2 weeks after a strong opener. But he boasts some upside in a potential shootout vs. the G-Men.

Redskins HC Jay Gruden said Tuesday that he's expecting TE Jordan Reed (concussion) to return this season. "He has seen specialists, and we are just trying to get to the bottom of it and figuring out the best way to make him more comfortable, get him back in the lineup," Gruden added. The fact that Reed's status for the rest of the season is in any doubt is concerning enough. There's still no timetable for his return from his 7th documented concussion. Although the TE position is thin, Reed isn't a must-hold in fantasy leagues without an IR spot.
