Redskins TE Jordan Reed said recently that he will play all 16 games during the 2015 regular season and said that changes to his diet and workout regimen would help him avoid some of the injuries that have kept him out of the lineup 12 times in his first two seasons.
Reed may find it hard to get too many people on board with him after missing practice just a few days later, however.
Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Tuesday, via Mike Jones of the Washington Post, that Reed is dealing with hamstring soreness that leaves his availability up in the air in the coming days. Reed has dealt with hamstring injuries, among others, in the past and his injury history should leave the team wary of putting him on the field too soon.
The Redskins have been dealing with some other injuries at tight end as well. Niles Paul, currently No. 1 on the depth chart, hurt his shoulder on Monday but an MRI showed no serious damage and Logan Paulsen went to North Carolina to have his injured toe evaluated by Dr. Robert Anderson, the story added.
