Redskins’ Best Offensive Player Ruled Out For Eagles Game
Redskins tight end Jordan Reed has officially been ruled out of Washington’s Week 6 game against the Eagles. Reed had previously been listed as ‘questionable’ on the final injury report with a concussion but Washington downgraded his status on Saturday afternoon.
This is a big loss for Washington. Reed currently leads his team in targets (45), receiving yards (316), and receiving touchdowns (2). He had 14 receptions for 166 yards and two touchdowns against Philadelphia in 2015. Washington will now have to rely on the 32-year-old Vernon Davis and the oft-injured Niles Paul in Reed’s place.
Reed’s latest concussion is the sixth he’s suffered going back to his college football days playing for the Florida Gators. One has to wonder about the long-term impact of the head injuries he’s sustained.
In other news, Washington also downgraded hybrid rookie linebacker/safety Su’a Cravens to out after originally listing him ‘questionable’ to play.
The Eagles will face Washington at 1:00 pm on Sunday, Oct. 16 at FedEx Field. Philadelphia is looking to advance to 4-1 while Washington is trying to extend their four-game win streak.
