To hear Reed tell it, there is no question about the matter.
"Yeah, I'm going to play," he said, via the Washington Post. "One hundred percent."
Reed missed most of the preseason with a hamstring injury. The talented tight end missed 13 games his first two NFL seasons.
The third-year pro caught seven passes for 63 yards and a touchdown in Week 1. He was Kirk Cousins' go-to target and should continue to see a plethora of passes thrown his way with DeSean Jackson on the shelf.
Facing a brutalizing Rams pass rush on Sunday, Cousins will look to get the ball out of his hands quickly, which means Reed, as the quarterback's security blanket, should see his stats will pop off the page again. We can't always trust what players have to say about their injuries but Reed seems pretty confident he's going to suit up.
