Redskins TE Jordan Reed felt a little rusty on Saturday before going onto the field for his first game action since last December, but the tight end quickly got back into the flow of things, recording two receptions for 21 yards in the first half of the Redskins' 31-13 preseason victory against the Baltimore Ravens.
His second catch, an eight-yard reception, was only possible after a full-extension dive on a ball placed out of reach of the defender.
Reed’s hamstring, which forced him to miss weeks of practice and even the first two preseason games, held up just fine.
“Felt good to be back, man,” he said after the game. “Back with my teammates and trying to help win this game.”
Reed admitted that he felt his routes kept getting stuck a little bit but the Baltimore game was the foundation for what he hopes is a season he can stay on the field more often. The Skins at least want to use him in passing situations, with the hope it will save him from getting banged up in running formations. If Reed can stay healthy he can produce fantasy points, but owners should definitely have a backup plan.
