Jordan Reed opened training camp on the PUP list with a toe injury, with head coach Jay Gruden saying he hoped it would be a short-term stay.
Five days later, Reed is travelling to Charlotte to see a specialist about the toe. That is a bit alarming, considering Reed's injury history and Gruden not suggesting a timetable for his return.
CSN Mid Atlantic Redskins Insider JP Finlay notes visiting a specialist does not necessarily mean an injury is serious, especially as the visit was scheduled. It's possible Reed and the team just want to get clearance from an expert before the star tight end returns to practice. But it could also mean things aren't improving.
On Monday, Reed was also spotted with his left knee wrapped during team drills. Redskins PR later said that Reed was icing down his knee after a workout.
Reed has missed 20 games in four seasons. We have Reed projected for about 12 games right now. When he's on the field, his production is elite. Reed has led all tight ends in PPR fantasy points per game in back-to-back years. But will he be on the field to help your fantasy team?
