Redskins TE Jordan Reed is battling a fracture in his big toe, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Reed seemed to let the injury slip to the media back in mid-August. The injury "affected many other parts of his foot," and Reed "could be limited throughout the season," Rapoport adds. We'll be keeping a close eye on his usage today. Consider Reed a risk/reward TE1 against a tough Eagles TE defense.

Redskins HC Jay Gruden expects TE Jordan Reed's role to grow as he continues to work back from offseason surgeries on both of his big toes. “He's going to get more and more as the season goes on,” Gruden said. “As Jordan gets more comfortable, and when we feel great about his health -- which we do right now -- I think you'll see more and more of Jordan." Reed has played 56.5% of Washington's offensive snaps through 3 games, although he run a route on 68% of QB Alex Smith's dropbacks. Both marks could grow when the 'Skins come out of their Week 4 bye. That's exciting considering Reed already ranks 4th among TEs in targets (20), 4th in catches (14) and 8th in yards (168).

Redskins TE Jordan Reed put in a full practice on Wednesday and isn't listed on the Week 1 injury report. We didn't see him this preseason, but it sounds like he enjoyed a healthy August. HC Jay Gruden said Wednesday that Reed's snap count could "vary" this season but added that he expects him to play “quite a bit.” Whenever Reed is active, he's worth getting into fantasy lineups as a TE1 with upside.

Toe problems hampered Redskins TE Jordan Reed all last year, ultimately limiting him to just 6 games. He had surgeries to remove the sesamoid bone in both big toes and now feels "100 times better." Reed added, "I can tell a difference because with the toes it was pain. I had pain all season, all offseason, and that pain was shutting down certain parts of the body that I needed. So you remove the pain and now I'm building my body back up and feeling great again." Reed, who's missed 32 games through 5 NFL seasons, remains 1 of the biggest injury risks in fantasy football. But he also led all TEs in PPR points per game in both 2015 and 2016. That upside makes him well worth a shot at his 9th-round ADP.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed (toe) was working off to the side of Wednesday's OTA session, according to ESPN's John Keim. Reed went through some agility drills and looked "fine," per Keim. We'd ideally like to see him full-go, but it's at least good to hear he's on the field doing something. The oft-injured TE missed another 10 games last year and had surgery this offseason to address the fractured toe that hampered him last summer. We'll see where Reed is at when training camp opens, but he'll remain 1 of the biggest injury risks in fantasy football. The good news is that risk is largely baked into his 9th-round price tag.

Redskins HC Jay Gruden revealed on Tuesday that TE Jordan Reed recently had a "procedure done on his toes." We don't have any other details, but this is presumably related to the fractured toe that ailed Reed last summer. "Hopefully we'll see a 100% healthy Jordan by training camp," Gruden added. Hopefully. Reed missed another 10 games last year, bringing the total to 28 through 5 NFL seasons. There's still upside with the 27-year-old, but Reed should be viewed as a risk/reward TE2 in 2018 fantasy drafts.
