Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) took part in a full practice Friday, Nov. 28, but is questionable for Week 13 against the Indianapolis Colts.
Huddle Up: Going by Friday's full-participation designation, you have to like Reed's chances of playing this week, but check in Sunday morning with the Huddle's Game-Day Inactives, Injury and Weather report to get the final word.

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 27.
Huddle Up: Reed, who sat out Week 11, was limited for the second straight day and there's a cautious optimism he might be able to give it a go Sunday in Indy. Friday's practice report should be a little more telling.

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) missed his third straight day of practice Friday, Nov. 21, and head coach Jay Gruden said Reed has been ruled out for Week 12 against the San Francisco 49ers.
Huddle Up: It's slim fantasy pickings in D.C. these days as Reed will miss his fifth game of the season. When lining up your replacement TE, best look for one that you use the rest of the season given the team's struggles and Reed's injury-marred 2-year track record.

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Nov. 19.
Huddle Up: Not a good sign for Reed, who was hurt in Week 11 and missed four games earlier in the season with a hammy issue. Start scratching together a Plan B now.

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) suffered a strained hamstring in the Week 11 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It is unclear if it is related to the hamstring injury that caused him to miss four games earlier in the season.
Huddle Up: Reed has been plagued by injuries throughout his career. If he misses time, Niles Paul will once again take over as Washington's starting tight end.

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) was limited in practice Friday, Oct. 10, and he'll be a game-time decision in Week 6 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: Reed, who's been limited all week, has expressed fairly strong hope that'll return following a 4-game absence, but the final decision is going to take his fantasy owners right down to wire, and it's a late-afternoon kickoff Sunday to boot. Definitely have a backup plan at the ready.

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) was limited in practice Thursday and has missed the past four games with a strained hamstring, but he is expressing optimism about returning in Week 6 against the Arizona Cardinals if he doesn't suffer any setbacks. "Yeah, definitely. Shooting for Sunday," Reed said. "Yeah, honestly. I feel like if I get everything done this week and everything goes smoothly, I can be out there on Sunday." Reed noticed a significant improvement with his hamstring in practice Wednesday, Oct. 8. There remains some tightness, but he's close to full strength.
Huddle Up: Remember Reed? Don't forget about a TE who's productive when he plays, but the second part of that phrase is the key part. See if he's able to do more in practice Friday.

The Washington Redskins have declared TE Jordan Reed, CB Richard Crawford, QB Robert Griffin III, WR Santana Moss, OG Spencer Long, CB Tracy Porter, SS Trenton Robinson inactive for Week 5.
Huddle Up: Reed will miss a fourth straight game, and hopefully his fantasy owners have Paul as a fall-back plan. Paul went out with a concussion in the Week 4 Thursday night loss to the Giants, but he's had 11 days to recover and has had 17 catches for 227 yards and a TD in the 3 games Reed has missed.

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) did individual drills in practice Tuesday, Sept. 30.
Huddle Up: Reed hasn't played since the opening game, and this might be the week he returns with Washington having 10 days between games. See if can get on this practice field later this week.

Posted: 9/23/2014 4:02pm et
Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) has been ruled out for the team's Week 4 game. Reed is not sure when he will play again, and his status is not known for the team's Week 5 game against the Seattle Seahawks.
Huddle Up: This will make 3 straight missed games for Reed, and it's starting to seem like his rookie season all over again when he missed 6 contests. He's totally expendable in 10-team leagues if you haven't already pulled the plug.

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) did not participate in practice Monday, Sept. 22. The team participated in a jog-though Monday.
Huddle Up: Reed has missed the last 2 games, and it might be tough for him to get ready on a short week. In short, it looks to be another week of Niles Paul unless we hear otherwise.

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) has been ruled out of Week 3 against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Huddle Up: That means another green light for the owners of Niles Paul, who leads the team with 12 catches, 185 yards and a TD on 15 targets.

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 2 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) is not expected to play in Week 2, according to head coach Jay Gruden. 'He's a long shot, I would say,' Gruden said.
Huddle Up: As expected, it looks like Reed's fantasy owners are going to have to make other plans for Week 2 and possibly beyond. D.C. backup Niles Paul is among the fill-in options as he led the team with 86 yards on 4 receptions in the opener.

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) will undergo an MRI on his left hamstring after leaving the Week 1 game against the Houston Texans. He might be sidelined at least two weeks. 'It's pretty frustrating,' Reed said Sunday, Sept. 7.
Huddle Up: Reed is a talented TE but he's been hampered by injuries during his NFL career. If Reed misses time, Logan Paulsen will start for Washington but he's nothing more than a low-end TE2 for fantasy purposes.

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (thumb) practiced in full Friday, Sept. 5, but is questionable for Week 1 against the Houston Texans.

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (thumb) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 3.
Huddle Up: Good news for Reed owners who are hoping the TE follows up his concussion-curtailed rookie year with a strong second season.

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (thumb) is dealing with a sprained thumb but should be ready to play Week 1, according to head coach Jay Gruden.
Huddle Up: The injury isn't ideal and is something for fantasy owners to monitor but it shouldn't keep Reed out of the lineup. Reed is primed for a big season as long as he can stay healthy.

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (illness) returned to practice Thursday, Aug. 14.
Huddle Up: It was a pesky stomach virus and nothing more for the second-year TE, who more than a few fantasy owners are counting on. Reed currently owns the sixth-highest ADP among TEs this summer.

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed missed practice Monday, Aug. 11, because of a stomach virus.
Huddle Up: Reed missed a third straight day of workouts, but it's nothing to really worry about with the second-year player who's the 6th TE being selected, on average, in fantasy drafts.

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.
Huddle Up: Let's hope this remains the case for Reed, who caught 45 passes for 499 yards and 3 TDs in 9 games before the injury last season.

Posted: 4/8/2014 2:24pm et
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.

Posted: 1/29/2014 1:37pm et
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.

Posted: 12/23/2013 12:09pm et
Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion) was placed on Injured Reserve.
Huddle Up: Logan Paulsen and Fred Davis have replaced Reed over the past month as the Redskins play out the string.

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.
