Redskins TE Jordan Reed undergoes 'little procedure' on ailing knee

CSN Washington - [Full Article]

Oft-injured Redskins tight end Jordan Reed had knee surgery and will be sidelined until training camp, Coach Jay Gruden told reporters Monday.

Reed was sent to a doctor last week after reporting soreness in his knee prior to last Tuesday’s OTA practice.

Gruden told reporters that Reed had a “little procedure” on his knee, adding that it was not arthroscopic surgery.

“It’s nothing, really,” Gruden told The Richmond Times Dispatch at the team's charity golf outing. “He’s having a little issue. Nothing serious.”

Fantasy Impact: 

This is certainly a red flag for a player who has missed considerable time with injury. When healthy, Reed has averaged 10.5 fantasy points in PPR formats over the past two seasons. This extrapolates to low-end TE1 numbers and he's certainly a worthy start when he's healthy enough to play. Niles Paul has shown flashes when given starter's snaps, but he hasn't been consistent even when Reed is out.
