Washington's passing game has been inconsistent this season, but when they have had success, part of it has come due to the development of rookie tight end Jordan Reed. Unfortunately, he suffered a concussion against the Philadelphia Eagles this past week. He is now in the concussion protocol, and sat out Wednesday's practice. For Monday Night Football, that is basically a walkthrough, so we'll get a better idea of things on Thursday.
Washington selected Reed in the 3rd round of April's Draft to play alongside Fred Davis. While Davis struggled to get going early in the season, Reed has been very solid. The third round pick has 45 receptions for 499 yards and a touchdown, while Davis has three receptions for 25 yards, and has been deactivated the last few weeks. Davis suffered an ankle injury early in the season, but now he is simply a healthy scratch.
If Reed is unable to go, Davis would likely be active. He has struggled to do much of anything, and it would be a significant blow to the Washington offense.
