Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed could see more deep passes thrown his way in 2014. New head coach Jay Gruden's offense sent TEs Tyler Eifert and Jermaine Gresham downfield often last season for the Cincinnati Bengals.
Huddle Up: Reed already ranked 15th among TEs who had at least 40 catches last season with 11.09 yards per reception, so more deep routes -- and better health -- will give his yardage totals and fantasy numbers a definite boost.

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed admitted to hiding a concussion he suffered two weeks before the second one that ended his season. 'I think I had had a concussion two weeks before, but I didn't tell nobody so when I took a shot to the side of my head against the Philadelphia Eagles it made it worse,' Reed told David Elfin of The SportsXchange. 'I was in a bad spot for a long time. I didn't know if they would ever go away, but I'm past it now.'
Huddle Up: Sure, Reed may be "past it" for now, but what about when the real contact picks up? Definitive research remains elusive, but some players seem to be more concussion prone than others, and It's definitely a concern when you miss almost half (7 games) of your rookie season.

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed was a full participant in the recent minicamp and is fully cleared from his concussion from last season.

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed said he has not suffered any setbacks and is feeling great after dealing with a concussion in 2013.
Huddle Up: Reed, who had 45 receptions for 499 yards and a 3 TDs in 9 games as a third-round pick last season, has much fantasy potential given the attention opposing defenses will be forced to give the suddenly-potent Washington WR corps with the signing of DeSean Jackson.

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion) is fully recovered from a concussion that ended his 2013 season and has begun training for the 2014 season.
Huddle Up: Reed finished second on the team with 45 receptions for 499 yards and 3 scores in his rookie season despite missing 7 games, and the Skins will be counting on a healthier Reed and RGIII this coming fall.

Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Sean McVay loves TE Jordan Reed, and Reed could be a force in the offense if he is able to stay healthy.
Huddle Up: Always good to have the OC on your side, but Reed's vast potential is hardly a surprise to fantasy owners who enjoyed his success in 2013. He won't sneak up on anyone next year, with his fantasy value limited only by how healthy he can remain.

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion) was placed on Injured Reserve.

The Washington Redskins announced the TE Jordan Reed (concussion) will miss the rest of the 2013 season and is slated to visit with more specialists. 'We're going to do what we can to make sure that he's looked at carefully, and when the doctors say that he's ready to go, he'll be ready to go,' head coach Mike Shanahan said.
Huddle Up: It's a tough way to end a season that featured so much promise and production for Reed, who hasn't played since getting injured in Week 11. The TE also dealt with concussion issues in college, and hopefully this hasn't developed into a chronic problem.

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion) was downgraded to out for Week 15.
Huddle Up: Reed's fantasy value for 2013 is pretty much over but he's an exciting tight end prospect for next season.

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion) will be held out for the final three regular season games, according to multiple sources. The team reportedly doesn't want to risk further serious injury to Reed with the team eliminated from playoff contention. Reed has yet to practice this week.
Huddle Up: Far from a shock here as it's officially look-to-2014 mode in D.C.

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion) is sitting out of practice again Thursday, Dec. 12, and he has not played in a game since Week 11.
Huddle Up: This is getting more than a little concerning for Reed, who was set to return in Week 13 before experiencing a pre-game headache. Right now, plan to be without him again Sunday until he can show some progress.

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 11.
Huddle Up: Reed looked like he was on track to play last week but ended up being inactive. He's highly questionable to face the Falcons on Sunday. Fantasy owners should look elsewhere for a tight end with so much on the line this week.

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 5.
Huddle Up: Reed is trying to return after a 2-game absence. He was all set to play last Sunday night, but came down with a troublesome headache and was declared inactive during pre-game warmups. Stay tuned over the next few days to further gauge Reed's status.

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion) was set to play in the Week 13 game against the New York Giants, but his head started bothering him during pregame warm-ups and he was scratched. He will once again go through the concussion protocol this week.
Huddle Up: It'll be another anxious week for Reed's fantasy owners, but at least the Skins play an early Sunday game after back-to-back prime-time contests.

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion) was limited in practice Friday, Nov. 29, and is questionable for Week 13.
Huddle Up: Reed official injury-report status is listed as 50-50, but the TE has said he fully expects to be back in the lineup against the Giants on Sunday night. That also would be much welcome news for RGIII, who's relied heavily on Reed and WR Pierre Garcon all season.

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion) said he will play in the team's Week 13 game. Reed said the concussion he suffered in Week 11 was his third.
Huddle Up: Reed has been a limited participant in both of the team's practices this week, and count on him playing after he sat out Week 12. With the rookie already having suffered 3 career concussions is definitely a red flag for both his short- and long-term outlook.

Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan said TE Jordan Reed (concussion) should be able to play Week 13 unless he suffers a setback during the week.
Huddle Up: The Redskins' offense is in a free-fall right now but Reed will still be worth starting as a TE1 this week against the Giants assuming he plays.

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion) is out for Week 12.
Huddle Up: Reed missed practice all week and couldn't pass his concussion tests. Fred Davis will likely be active for this game and split time with Logan Paulsen. However, neither is a great fantasy option this week against the 49ers' defense.

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 22.
Huddle Up: It's time for Reed's fantasy owners to start lining up another TE as he failed his initial concussion test Thursday and hasn't practiced yet this week in advance of Monday night's game against the Niners.

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion) did not pass his concussion test Thursday, Nov. 21, according to head coach Mike Shanahan, and missed practice.
Huddle Up: Reed does have an extra day to recover with the Skins not playing until Monday night in Week 12, but that's the only positive news at this point for the TE who was injured early in the Week 11 loss to the Eagles.

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion) appeared woozy after the Week 11 game against the Philadelphia Eagles as he exited the locker room. He is not allowed to speak with reporters, but will travel home with the team.
Huddle Up: Hopefully it's not serious, but Reed could be out for a little while. Plan accordingly.

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed got praise from QB Robert Griffin III. "[Reed] is a dynamic player, great after the catch, great hands, a guy that has a wide catch radius," Griffin said. "The greatest thing he's done is just accepted his role early in the year and he took his catches here and there, took his plays here and there, and now that he's becoming more of a starter for us, he can be dynamic."
Huddle Up: With Fred Davis MIA this season in D.C., the athletic Reed has filled much of the void, garnering at least 6 targets and either 5 catches or at least 50 yards in 3 of his 4 games played so far.

Washington Redskins TE Fred Davis, K Kai Forbath and TE Jordan Reed all fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 9.
Huddle Up: Reed and Davis could share tight end duties for the Redskins; it would be better from a fantasy perspective if only one was healthy and thus not sharing, but at least the Redskins have options.

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (thigh) is not expected to play in the Week 4 game against the Oakland Raiders, according to beat writer Grant Paulsen.
Huddle Up: Reed, who's been the Skins' top TE and ranks 3rd on the squad with 13 catches, would open up targets if he sits, possibly for TE Fred Davis, who's questionable with an ankle injury after missing Week 3.

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (thigh) said he is day-to-day with a thigh bruise, and he is not sure if he will be able to play in Week 4. "It's day-to-day right now," he said. "If I feel good tomorrow, I'll be out there tomorrow."
Huddle Up: Reed has emerged as a bit of a favorite target for Robert Griffin III, but he's not a top-shelf option. See what else is out there.

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed left the Week 3 game against the Detroit Lions due to a quadriceps contusion. He was hit in the leg by a defensive player's helmet. 'It's real frustrating I couldn't keep playing,' Reed said Sunday, Sept. 22. 'I've got to come in (Monday) and see what kind of treatment I need.'
Huddle Up: Reed has filled in admirably--maybe even taken over--for Fred Davis as the Redskins' tight end. We'll see who gets healthy before making any future speculation as to Washington's plans at the position.
