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 CSNMidAtlantic.com. “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.
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.
