Tight end Jordan Reed won’t be playing on Thursday night.
Redskins coach Jay Gruden said Tuesday that Reed, who signed a five-year extension this offseason, will be held out of the team’s preseason opener against the Falcons. Reed is dealing with a sprained left thumb and will remain home to get treatment while the rest of the squad goes to Atlanta.
As the story put it, Reed has dealt with a variety of injuries over the course of his NFL career, although this appears to be more precaution about playing him for a series or two than a serious issue that could impact his readiness for the season.
