After missing the past three games with a hamstring pull, Redskins TE Jordan Reed appears to be progressing toward a return to the lineup.
The tight end wore pads and a helmet during Tuesday’s practice—the team’s first session since Thursday’s lopsided loss to the Giants—and participated in individual drills. In previous weeks, Reed had worked off to the side with the Redskins’ other rehabbing players.
Reed’s official status for the practice—out, limited or full—might not be known until later today, the story said, though the team does not have to disclose that information until Thursday's practice. Reporters, meantime, were only allowed to view the opening 30 minutes of Tuesday’s session. Another news item from CSN Washignton said the team had two empty roster spots and didn't fill one with a TE, indicating that either Niles Paul or Reed could be a go Week 5. Paul is recovering from a concussion from a nasty hit, and wasn't in pads today the story said. It's looking like Reed could be back in what is actually a decent matchup against the Seahawks who have given up points to TEs.
