Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) did not practice Wednesday. Jackson should be able to play. Depending on Jordan Reed’s status, there may be a few extra targets to go around. The matchup against the Lions is great (#28 in WR aFPA).

After missing Sunday's game against the Eagles and not practicing at all last week, HC Jay Gruden said simply, "Jordan Reed will see the independent doctor tomorrow," and added that he would have another update on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact:

The scary part for all parties is this marks at least Reed's sixth concussion, a dangerous number of head injuries at a time when more and more is being discovered about the trauma caused by repeated shots to the helmet. The NFL protocol requires Reed be cleared by an independent doctor before the team can consider a timeline for being back on the field, and until that happens, conversations around Reed are quite limited the story said.

Skins plan to rest WR Josh Doctson (Achilles), but IR a possibility

For now, the Washington Redskins will continue to rest rookie wide receiver Josh Doctson until they make a long-term decision involving his injured Achilles.

Doctson has missed the Redskins’ last four games and will not practice this week as Washington prepares to face the Detroit Lions with the potential of a five-game winning streak looming. The 23-year-old will likely remain inactive through the Bye Week. If he isn’t fully healed by then, Injured Reserve will be an option the team will have to explore.

"I think we’ll send him to another doctor, get another opinion and I think the plan right now is to probably immobilize him for a little bit, just to take completely the stress off of it for a little bit of time and then see where that leads us," Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said on Monday. "IR maybe, maybe not, we don’t know yet.”

Fantasy Impact:

Doctson was a last-minute scratch just minutes before the Redskins’ Week 3 game against the New York Giants on Sept. 25. Doctson was expected to play in the game, but during pregame warmups he couldn’t push off his leg the way he would have liked to and hasn't been on the field since.

Redskins rule out TE Jordan Reed

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Not surprisingly, the Redskins on Saturday declared both tight end Jordan Reed and rookie safety Su’a Cravens out of Sunday’s game vs. the Eagles.

Both were downgraded after being listed as questionable on Friday’s injury report.

Reed was diagnosed this week with his sixth concussion since his college playing days and could miss more time.

Fantasy Impact:

As the story noted, the Skins have two more games before their bye on Nov. 6. It's not out of the question Reed sits out until after the bye considering his concussion history. However, this is just speculation. Owners should have a backup plan in place in case he does miss multiple games.

Redskins WR Josh Doctson (achilles, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 6.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion, questionable) missed practice all week and is questionable for Week 6. Despite the questionable tag, Reed looks doubtful for Sunday. He has a history of concussions, so if he’s out look for Vernon Davis to play starter’s snaps, with Niles Paul playing on two-TE sets. The Redskins play early on Sunday.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed being 'evaluated' for a concussion

Redskins TE Jordan Reed being evaluated for concussion.

Related players: Vernon Davis

Fantasy Impact:

This puts Reed's Week 6 status in doubt. Vernon Davis has served as the TE2 thus far and would likely see most of Reed's snaps if he can't play.

Jay Gruden: 'I think you'll see more of Robert Kelley'

Tuesday, October 11, 2016, 12:02pm

CSN Mid-Atlantic - [Full Article]

After Redskins RB Matt Jones struggled in a win over Baltimore, HC Jay Gruden expressed interest in getting RB Robert Kelley more involved in the game plan. "I think Robert shows that he’s deserving of some carries. You know, we like Matt Jones, but I think there’s a good combination there where the both of them can get the ball."

Jones is still the starter, for now, and should continue to see the majority of the backfield work for Washington.

Fantasy Impact:

Matt Jones' role in the offense seems safe for now and he should still be used as an RB2. If Kelley does become a bigger contributor, though, there could be major cause for concern. The Redskins are one of just six teams whose RBs account for 50% or fewer of team touches, so this team likely can't support two fantasy-relevant backs.
