Redskins TE Jordan Reed (toe) starts camp on PUP

Washington Redskins tight end Jordan Reed's training camp won’t begin the way anyone hoped. In a surprising move, the Redskins placed him on the physically unable to perform list, along with three other players.

Also on the list: safety DeAngelo Hall (knee), linebacker Houston Bates (knee) and receiver Kendal Thompson (leg). Reed, though, is the most consequential. He was fine during the Redskins' two-day minicamp, so his inclusion on the list comes as a surprise.

Reed sprained his big toe and is still dealing with pain and soreness, a Redskins senior vice president of communications Tony Wyllie said. He’s undergoing further evaluation before being cleared to return. The Redskins are hoping to avoid a long-term issue.

Opening on the PUP list does not mean Reed won’t be ready for the season. He can come off the list at any time, but a player can’t be placed on the PUP list once camp begins.

Fantasy Impact: 

It remains to be seen how serious this injury is. The Washington Post added that the move was "precautionary," according to a person with knowledge of the situation. Hopefully, it's not turf toe, which can linger for weeks. On a per game basis, Reed had the highest scoring average in PPR leagues and the third-highest in standard formats. We'll have more details as they emerge.
