Jordan Reed feeling better, will practice Thursday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/12/2014) Redskins tight end Jordan Reed, who's been out since late last week with a stomach virus, is feeling much better and will practice Thursday, coach Jay Gruden told reporters.

Jordan Reed out with illness


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/10/2014) Redskins tight end Jordan Reed missed both weekend practices with an illness, reports CSNWashington.com. It's not believed to be serious, and coaches are confident he'll be back soon.

If Jordan Reed can stay healthy...


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2014) Redskins tight end Jordan Reed missed seven games last season, six due to a concussion. He had durability issues in college. But coaches and teammates know that if Reed can stay on the field, he'll do special things, reports ESPN.com.

"He’s always been a natural route runner," offensive coordinator Sean McVay said. "He just gets it. You don’t have to overcoach him. He just naturally separates."

The 6-2, 237-pound Reed is one of the team's top basketball players and has a killer crossover move he's adapted to football, the website said.

"The way he can move his body and be in total control all the time is really special," fellow tight end Logan Paulsen said. "He does a lot of things that receivers can’t do and that will make him so special for a long time. I have never seen anyone run routes the way he runs them. I’m not exaggerating at all when I say that. He’s a special talent. He’s just wired in an explosive athletic way. You see a guy cross somebody up in basketball; he has that move. Even though you know it’s coming he still gets guys to bite. It’s incredible."

Coach Jay Gruden called Reed a fluid athlete who still has a lot to learn.

"He’s effortless the way he runs and very smooth and very difficult to cover and he can stop on a dime and get out of cuts," Gruden said. "He’s very sudden, and he’s got a good feel for the zones. It’s just a matter now of perfecting his craft, both in the passing game when he has to protect and in the running game. So, you know that takes some time. He’s only in his second year and this is a new system, new terminology for him and he’s doing a good job but he has a ways to go before we mention him with the great tight ends in the NFL."


Jordan Reed will 'be a key player'


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/26/2014) Redskins offensive coordinator Sean McVay said tight end Jordan Reed will be an important piece on offense this season, reports the team's official website.

"He's going be a key player in our offense," McVay said. "He's an elite route runner for the position, and he still competes with the toughness. He's got great feet, so he can cover guys up in the run game."

McVay said the Redskins will find ways to get Reed in favorable matchups.

"I think what we'll try to do with him will maximize his skillset," McVay said. "He's done a great job this offseason, so he's in position to have a great year."


Jordan Reed hid concussions from Redskins


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/5/2014) Redskins tight end Jordan Reed believes he had a concussion two weeks before suffering another one last season. He missed the last seven games of the 2013 season because of concussions and also had two while playing ball at Florida. 

"I think I had had a concussion two weeks before, but I didn't tell nobody so when I took a shot to the side of my head against the Eagles it made it worse," Reed told The Sports Xchange.  "I was in a bad spot for a long time. I didn't know if they would ever go away, but I'm past it now."

Reed is expected to be ready for the start of training camp. 


Redskins draft TE Ted Bolser in Round 7


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/10/2014) With the 217th pick of the 2014 NFL Draft, the Washington Redskins selected tight end Ted Bolser from Indiana.

The 6-foot-6, 248-pound tight end ran a 4.85-second 40-yard dash at the combine. Bolser totaled 34 receptions for 320 yards and six touchdowns in 2013. He will join a tight end group that includes Jordan Reed, Logan Paulsen and Niles Paul.

Jordan Reed is 'full-go'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/4/2014) Redskins tight end Jordan Reed, who dealt with concussion problems last season, is "full-go" and won't have any limitations during training camp, reports ESPN.com. Reed "did a nice job during the minicamp" and will "obviously be a big factor this season if he can stay healthy," the report said.

Why DeSean Jackson is a good fit for Redskins


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/2/2014) DeSean Jackson's skill set will mesh with the Redskins' offense and quarterback Robert Griffin III, according to ESPN.com. "Griffin's ability to throw the deep ball sits well with Jackson's penchant for catching them in the past," the report said. "It's what Jackson does best, and it's why he scares a defense so much. 

"Griffin might not have a laser arm like Michael Vick -- few do -- but it's a very good arm and it's certainly one that should connect with Jackson down the field. Oh, there's also Griffin's ability to extend plays with a group as fast as this one. That, too, should lead to headaches for opposing defensive coordinators in the week leading up to facing this offense."

Jackson joins wideouts Pierre Garcon and Andre Roberts and tight end Jordan Reed to give Griffin four dangerous targets. The improved passing game also should open up running lanes for Alfred Morris.


Gruden excited to work with Jordan Reed


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/26/2014) New Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Wednesday at the NFL owners meetings that he is looking forward to working with tight end Jordan Reed this year.

"Jordan Reed is one of the more exciting, young NFL players based on what I've seen with his movement and getting in and out of breaks and his natural hands," Gruden said. "His feel for the game is exciting. We just have to make sure he stays healthy and stays on the field. That's something that's hard to do these days with the physicality of the game. As far as his natural routes and feel for the position, we're excited to work with him."

Reed dealt with concussion problems as a rookie in 2013, but he finished with 45 catches for 499 yards and three touchdowns.


Robert Griffin III to work with receivers next week


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/17/2014) Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III and his receiving targets will gather in Arizona next week to "knock off some rust and get a jump on offseason workouts," reports the Washington Post. The receivers scheduled to attend include Pierre Garcon, Aldrick Robinson, Santana Moss, new additions Andre Roberts and David Gettis, tight end Jordan Reed and running backs Alfred Morris, Evan Royster and Chris Thompson.

Report: Jordan Reed has recovered from concussion issues


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/18/2014) Redskins tight end Jordan Reed has recovered from the concussion problems that plagued him during his rookie season and has begun training for the 2014 season. The Washington Post surmises that he'll have a big role in the offense in 2014 citing former tight ends coach Sean McVay now in the role of offensive coordinator for the Redskins. 

It's worth noting that Reed caught 45 passes for 499 yards and three touchdowns in nine games last year, becoming a go-to player for Robert Griffin III. 


Jordan Reed will be a force if healthy


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/28/2014) Jordan Reed's "ability to create separation is fantastic," reports ESPN.com, and the Redskins tight end will be a force in 2014 if he stays healthy. Reed missed the final six games of his rookie year due to a concussion.

The website notes Reed, who caught 45 passes for 499 yards and three touchdowns in nine games, became a trusted target for Robert Griffin III because of his "wide catch radius" and because he "makes terrific adjustments on the ball."

Washington averaged 37 fewer passing yards without Reed on the field.


Jordan Reed shut down for the rest of the year


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/19/2013) Washington tight end Jordan Reed has been shut down due to lingering concussion symptoms.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/19/2013) Washington tight end Jordan Reed is meeting with concussion specialists Thursday, according to ESPN.

Reed has been unable to practice recently, but the team has not shut him down for the season. Reed has already seen a number of specialists since his concussion. He's missed the past four games due to the injury. With two games left to go, the team could finally shut down Reed based on what the doctors recommend. 


Jordan Reed still out with concussion symptoms


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2013) Redskins tight end Jordan Reed did not practice Wednesday due to lingering concussion symptoms, reports the Washington Post. He's in danger of missing his fifth straight game Sunday vs. Dallas.

Jordan Reed still hasn't been cleared


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/16/2013) It's not looking very promising for Redskins tight end Jordan Reed to return Week 16 vs. Dallas after missing the last four games with a concussion. Coach Mike Shanahan said Monday Reed continues to have a headache and has still not been cleared.

Shanahan added Reed has met with specialists to figure out his issues recovering from the concussion.


Jordan Reed again a no-go


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/15/2013) Redskins tight end Jordan Reed is inactive for a fourth straight game because of a concussion Week 15 at Atlanta. He was ruled out Saturday when he didn't travel with the team. He looked like he'd be able to return Week 13 against the Giants but suffered a setback before the game and hasn't been cleared to practice since.

Jordan Reed ruled out again


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2013) Redskins tight end Jordan Reed (concussion) did not travel with the team to Atlanta Saturday, and will not play in Week 15 against the Falcons as a result, the team announced. Reed has been officially downgraded to out, after failing to pass concussion tests.

Reed has now missed four games as a result of the injury. 


Jordan Reed questionable Week 15


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/13/2013) Washington tight end Jordan Reed is questionable Week 15 against the Falcons.

Reed is still dealing with concussion-related symptoms, and has not been cleared to practice. Reed has already missed three games due to the injury.


Conflicting reports on Jordan Reed's status emerge


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/13/2013) FOXSports.com reported Thursday the Redskins will shut down tight end Jordan Reed as a result of his lingering issue with concussions, though ESPN.com later cited a team source denying the report. Reed has missed three straight games as a result of the issue, and has not yet practiced in anticipation of Week 15 against the Falcons.

Coach Mike Shanahan told reporters the team has not talked about shutting Reed down. Reed has been visiting different doctors for daily testing, as he continues to deal with headaches related to the concussion.

"It'll be an ongoing process," Shanahan said. "I think that's why they have this process, to make sure somebody doesn't come back too early, no matter what type of headache they do have. But if they don’t pass the test, there's reason for concern."


Jordan Reed out again Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2013) Washington tight end Jordan Reed did not practice Thursday.

Reed has missed the past three games with a concussion, and has yet to practice this week. Unless he can recover in time to practice Friday, his status for Sunday is in doubt.


Logan Paulsen settling in for Jordan Reed?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/11/2013) Though the Redskins have yet to give any indication of tight end Jordan Reed's status for Week 15 at Atlanta, bringing him back probably isn't the biggest priority in a lost season. He's already suffered one setback in his return from a concussion, and it's not like Logan Paulsen has performed poorly in his absence, scoring a touchdown in back-to-back games.

Whichever player starts at tight end for the Redskins will have a favorable matchup. The Falcons rank 20th against the pass, allowing 245.8 yards per game, and have given up the seventh-most Fantasy points to tight ends.

Of course, matchup data only counts for so much. The one with the greatest say in how the Redskins tight ends perform in Week 15 is quarterback Kirk Cousins, who is starting over Robert Griffin III for the first time this season. Cousins played the entire fourth quarter last week against the Chiefs but was inefficient, completing 7 of 16 passes for 59 yards.

If Reed ends up playing, his upside makes him almost impossible to sit in Fantasy, but in the more likely scenario that Paulsen plays, he's a gamble in Fantasy despite the favorable matchup and touchdown-scoring streak.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
