Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder, questionable) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 7. We believe Jackson will play. He has a great matchup with the Lions, but if he can’t go, it means more targets for Jamison Crowder and Pierre Garçon (and Vernon Davis). Washington plays early on Sunday.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion, out) missed practice again Friday and is out for Week 7. With Reed officially out, owners can stream Vernon Davis in a nice matchup with the Lions (#30 in TE aFPA). Davis turned four targets into 50 yards and a touchdown last week in a tough matchup against the Eagles.

Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) missed practice again Thursday. Jackson’s Friday practice will be key. He has a great matchup with the Lions, but if he can’t go, it means more targets for Jamison Crowder and Pierre Garçon (and Vernon Davis if Jordan Reed remains out).

Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion, questionable) missed practice all week and is questionable for Week 6. Despite the questionable tag, Reed looks doubtful for Sunday. He has a history of concussions, so if he’s out look for Vernon Davis to play starter’s snaps, with Niles Paul playing on two-TE sets. The Redskins play early on Sunday.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion) missed practice again Thursday. Reed is beginning to look doubtful for Sunday. He has a history of concussions, so if he’s out look for Vernon Davis to play starter’s snaps, with Niles Paul playing on two-TE sets.

This puts Reed's Week 6 status in doubt. Vernon Davis has served as the TE2 thus far and would likely see most of Reed's snaps if he can't play.

The Bears busy Sunday continues with the signing of veteran tight end Logan Paulsen, formerly of the Washington Redskins. Paulsen, 29, was signed by the Redskins as an undrafted free agent back in 2010 and has spent his entire career in Washington.
He missed all of the 2015 season with a toe injury and was released yesterday due to a very deep depth chart at tight end in Washington (Jordan Reed, Niles Paul, Vernon Davis). Prior to the 2015 season Paulsen had been a valuable contributor for the Redskins, appearing in all but 5 games from 2010-2014 with 42 starts.
Paulsen is known primarily for his blocking skills, but has proven to be a solid receiver as well with 79 catches, 801 yards, and 6 touchdowns.
NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Thursday that Vernon Davis is signing a one-year deal with the Washington Redskins, per a source informed of the situation. Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports first reported the news.

Broncos TE Owen Daniels (knee, knee) returned to limited practice reps Thursday after missing Wednesday practice. Daniels was probable last week with a knee injury, so we expect him to play again. If he’s out, it would boost Vernon Davis’s value.

Broncos TE Vernon Davis (concussion, questionable) took limited practice reps again Friday and is questionable for Week 14. Owen Daniels would be a Sneaky Start if Davis sits, though it’s a late game, which complicates matters. Brock Osweiler is targeting tight ends on 28% of his pass attempts since Week 11, but Daniels and Davis have been splitting the work. Daniels (knee, probable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week.

Broncos TE Vernon Davis (concussion) did not practice Wednesday, but returned on Thursday. Owen Daniels (knee) took limited practice reps Wednesday. So much for Daniels’ budding Sneaky Start status. Brock Osweiler is targeting tight ends on 28% of his pass attempts since Week 11, but Daniels and Davis have been splitting the work.
Tight end Vernon Davis suffered a concussion at the end of the first half. He will not return to the game.
It wasn't clear how severe the injury was at first, but recent reports say Anderson doesn't think it's a big deal. As we always say, it's tough to trust a player when it comes to injuries so stay tuned. Ronnie Hillman became the primary back with Juwan Thompson also getting carries. Anderson was off to a good start with seven carries and 42 yards.
As for Davis, Owen Daniels would become the primary TE if Davis has to miss time.
Brock Osweiler is under center and Gary Kubiak is running his preferred set of play calls, which means the tight end is more heavily involved in Denver.
Davis caught a team-high six passes from Osweiler after snagging just two in his previous two games with the Broncos. The tight end said his rapport with the young quarterback was on point from his first practice in Denver.
"Sometimes it takes awhile to get on the same page and develop that chemistry with a quarterback," Davis said, via the Denver Post. "But with this guy, it's like we connected from Day One."
Denver acquired Davis at the trade deadline to help replace the production lost when Julius Thomas left for Jacksonville. With Osweiler physically able to perform Kubiak's bootleg-action plays, tight ends will have a bigger role in the coming weeks, the story said. We thought it could take some time, but Davis is certainly someone to monitor if you're looking for help at the TE position.
