Washington TE Jordan Reed is sitting out minicamp this week after he "rolled" an ankle in OTAs. It doesn't seem like a significant issue, but every Reed ding is worth tracking after he lost 14 games to injuries over the past 3 years. His absence leaves more reps for Niles Paul and Vernon Davis. HC Jay Gruden says Paul has done a "great job" in his return from a nasty ankle injury, according to the Washington Post, and that Davis has picked up the playbook quickly. Neither is likely to be fantasy relevant when Reed is healthy.

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.

Washington has ruled TE Jordan Reed out for Monday night's game against the Bears because of his concussion. That means Vernon Davis gets another start.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion) didn’t practice on Thursday or Friday and is a long shot for Monday night’s game against the Bears. We’ll get another update on him this afternoon, but look for Vernon Davis to get another game as Washington’s lead TE. He’s not a great fantasy play vs. Chicago.
