Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Tight end Jordan Reed won’t be playing on Thursday night.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Tuesday that Reed, who signed a five-year extension this offseason, will be held out of the team’s preseason opener against the Falcons. Reed is dealing with a sprained left thumb and will remain home to get treatment while the rest of the squad goes to Atlanta.
