TE Jordan Reed has been cleared to practice when the Redskins hit the field again on Wednesday, HC Jay Gruden said. But the fourth-year veteran, who has missed two games since his Week 5 concussion, isn’t yet cleared to play Sunday.
“No, not necessarily,” Gruden said during his Monday afternoon press conference, when asked if Reed will play on Sunday. “He’s been cleared to practice but he still needs to be cleared by the independent doctor.”
The Redskins have a bye in Week 9 and some reports have said the team may hold out Reed until Week 10 when they return from the week off. Vernon Davis played pretty well the last two weeks and makes for a nice fill-in for Reed owners. He had a 7-79-0 last week and was about a yard short of a TD on one of his catches.
