Redskins TE Jordan Reed (shoulder) missed practice again Thursday. Reed was able to finish the game, but is reportedly very sore and has a limited range of motion. According to Adam Schefter, Reed is “unlikely to play” in Week 13. If Reed can’t go, Vernon Davis will be a Sneaky Start despite a terrible matchup.

Skins Beat: RB Rob Kelley needs to be consistent

Tuesday, November 29, 2016, 10:32am

CSN Mid-Atlantic - [Full Article]

It will be an interesting week for running back Rob Kelley.

In his first three starts he running back averaged 107 yards per game and 4.8 yards per attempt. He his first dud against the Cowboys, rushing for 37 yards on 14 carries, an average of 2.64.

One bad game isn’t going to get him sent to the bench and the issues against Dallas certainly are not all his fault. But another 30-yard effort with an average of under 3 yards per carry will get the staff looking at the bench at Mack Brown and Matt Jones. Time is running short and he needs to display some consistency.

Fantasy Impact:

It sounds like this writer thinks the team could make a switch at some point if Kelley doesn't show a little more consistency. Unfortunately, that could be a tough task with the Cards, Eagles and Panthers all up next and all three in the top-10 in terms of allowing fantasy points to RBs.

Skins TE Jordan Reed (shoulder) doesn't need surgery, but unsure he can play Week 13

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

The good news for Washington tight end Jordan Reed is that he doesn’t need surgery. That doesn’t mean his separated shoulder feels great, or that he’ll be able to play this week against the Cardinals.

“It’s probably about 30 percent range of motion right now,” Reed said, via J.P. Finlay of “I don’t throw the ball, so I don’t need surgery.”

Reed was able to finish — impressively — after injuring his shoulder last week against Dallas. Coach Jay Gruden referred to it as a Grade 3 AC Joint injury, but Reed said there was no danger of making it worse last week by playing.

Fantasy Impact:

Reed said he is day to day and it seems like it just depends how much he can manage the pain. Vernon Davis would be a nice fill-in for Reed owners if Reed can't play, and may be worth carrying from here out if this continues to be an issue for Reed.

Zimmer: Laquon Treadwell 'catching up to the NFL'

Monday, November 28, 2016, 2:06pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

He wasn't targeted with a pass during Thursday's loss to the Detroit Lions, but in many ways, Laquon Treadwell was more involved in the Minnesota Vikings’ offense than he has been at any point during his rookie season.

Treadwell played 31 snaps against the Lions -- just four fewer than he'd played the rest of the season -- and ran a route on 25 of those plays, according to ESPN Stats & Information. The first-round pick remains stuck on one catch, which came Nov. 6 on the only pass thrown his way this season, but coach Mike Zimmer says he sees progress from Treadwell in a number of areas. He missed the Vikings' game against the Washington Redskins on Nov. 13 with a hamstring injury, but Zimmer said Treadwell is pretty healthy now.

"I think he's kind of catching up to the NFL a little bit now," Zimmer said. "His quickness, his stops and starts, his acceleration [are better.]

Fantasy Impact:

Concerns about Treadwell's speed helped him drop to the 23rd overall pick, where the Vikings took him in the draft last April, but the team said it believed Treadwell would run more effectively the further removed he was from the broken leg he sustained in college. At this point, Zimmer said he thinks Treadwell is fully recovered.

Skins TE Jordan Reed not at practice Monday

Don't see TE Jordan Reed at Redskins practice, no surprise.

Related players: Vernon Davis

Fantasy Impact:

Reed has a Grade 3 shoulder separation an MRI revealed Friday, per HC Jay Gruden. Reed returned to the game on Thanksgiving, and owners probably couldn't tell he was hurt with the numbers he produced. However his status is very much in question for Week 13. The good news is he's had a few extra days. Vernon Davis could make for a very nice handcuff option.
