Jordan Reed fully recovered from concussion symptoms

Washington Post - [Full Article]

Redskins TE Jordan Reed has recovered from the concussion symptoms that ended his rookie season prematurely, and he is back to training in preparation for his second NFL season. He very well could take over as the starting tight end, although Logan Paulsen also is no slouch. While Reed is a versatile pass catcher, Paulsen is more complete as a blocker, and also has the ability to line up at fullback. We can probably expect to see a number of formations that feature both of them on the field at the same time, just as we did last season. Remember, former tight ends coach Sean McVay is now the offensive coordinator, so if anyone knows how to maximize Reed and Paulsen’s talents, it’s him. Jay Gruden obviously will be heavily involved in the running of the offense, but his schemes in the passing game had a lot of similarities to Washington’s under Kyle Shanahan. Gruden’s playbook did play well to the strengths of tight end Jermaine Gresham, who last season recorded 46 catches for 461 yards (fourth on the Bengals’ roster) and four touchdowns.

Fantasy Impact:

Reed was on pace for 80-887-5.3 (#7 TE-type numbers) prior to his injury, but didn't even crack the 50% snaps played mark until Week 6. In the five games where he played at least 50% of his team's snaps, he averaged 6.2-76-.40 or #3 TE-type numbers. The main concern with Reed is his injury history, specifically with concussions. According to NBC Washington, Reed suffered two concussions while at Florida. If he can stay healthy, he's a likely top 5 fantasy TE, but that's no sure thing.

Jordan Reed still experiencing headaches
Monday, December 16, 2013, 5:22pm

Chris Russell on Twitter - [Full Article]

Redskins HC Mike Shanahan: TE Jordan Reed still has a headache today. Still not cleared.

Fantasy Impact:

That certainly doesn't sound good for Reed's chances of playing this week, and perhaps even the rest of the season. Fred Davis and Logan Paulsen will continue to see action with Reed out but aren't really safe options.

Jordan Reed ruled OUT for Week 15

CSN Washington - [Full Article]

TE Jordan Reed’s promising rookie season has been seriously short-circuited by a concussion he suffered during the Redskins’ Week 11 game against the Eagles. The injury will cost him a fourth straight game on Sunday.

According to an ESPN 980 report, Reed will not play tomorrow when the Redskins visit the Falcons. It appears that he was unable to pass a concussion test that was scheduled for today and league rules—and common sense—prohibit Reed from playing.

Fantasy Impact:

There was a report this week that Reed will be put on IR and miss the rest of the season, but that obviously isn't the case - at least yet. Logan Paulsen will again play in place of Reed against the Falcons.

Report: Jordan Reed done for the season
Thursday, December 12, 2013, 6:07pm

Fox Sports - [Full Article]

One day after Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III was benched for the remainder of the season, another cog to the team's offense will be shut down.

Rookie tight end Jordan Reed will be held out of play for the remaining three weeks of the year, multiple sources close to Reed told FOXSports.com.

Head coach Mike Shanahan said Thursday that there hasn't been any discussions to end Reed's season, but sources indicate the team doesn't want to risk their prized tight end as it winds down a dismal season, which has seen it go 3-10 thus far.

Update: As of Friday, Reed has not been ruled out for the year. The Redskins play early on Sunday, and Reed apparently has to pass a concussion test on Saturday and a conditioning test on Sunday to be active against the Falcons.

Fantasy Impact:

Logan Paulsen has been filling in admirably for Reed, catching three passes (and a TD) in each of the last two games.

Jordan Reed TE
Darrel Young RB
Brandon Jenkins LB
Josh Laribeus OL
Niles Paul TE
Chase Minnifield DB

Fantasy Impact:

Jordan Reed was cleared to play tonight, but suffered a setback with concussion symptoms prior to the game. Logan Paulsen is the best backup option for Washington. Brandon Myers and Zach Miller are other options that should be available for desperate owners.

MNF Injury Report - Reed OUT
Saturday, November 23, 2013, 7:44pm

49ers

OUT
CB Tarell Brown (ribs), G Mike Iupati (knee), WR Quinton Patton (foot)

QUESTIONABLE
TE Garrett Celek (hamstring), WR Mario Manningham (knee), DT Ray McDonald (ankle)

PROBABLE
DT Quinton Dial (ankle), RB Frank Gore (ankle), QB Colin Kaepernick (back), LB Dan Skuta (foot), DT Justin Smith (shoulder)

Redskins

OUT
TE Jordan Reed (concussion)

QUESTIONABLE
DE Stephen Bowen (knee), S Jose Gumbs (ankle), RB Darrel Young (hamstring)

PROBABLE
CB E.J. Biggers (knee), CB Josh Wilson (toe)

Fantasy Impact:

Logan Paulsen and Fred Davis will try to fill in for Reed in a not-so-favorable matchup against the 49ers. Paulsen had a TD in Week 10 vs. the Vikings but only finished with three yards, so neither is really a safe play. For the 49ers, WR Mario Manningham is questionable while QB Colin Kaepernick and RB Frank Gore are probable.
