Redskins TE Jordan Reed Misses Practice Again; Questionable for Sunday

Jordan Reed

After tight end Jordan Reed missed his third straight practice Friday because of a concussion, Redskins Coach Jay Gruden said he’s listed as questionable to play, Master Tesfatsion of the Washington Post reports.

The Redskins are holding out hope, but it’s difficult to be optimistic about Reed’s status for Sunday’s game against the Eagles.

Reed is still in the concussion protocol, and Gruden said he will visit the doctors Friday afternoon. The Redskins hope to have a better idea about his health this evening.

“That’s up to [the doctors] really,” Gruden said. “If they say he’s okay, he’s okay. If Jordan feels okay, then he’ll be fine. But we wait and see, A, how Jordan is feeling and then, B, what the doctors say. Actually, the doctors are first, Jordan’s second.”

NFL Fines Redskins WR DeSean Jackson for ‘Caution’ Cleats Worn During Browns Game

DeSean Jackson

Redskins wide out DeSean Jackson has been hit with a fine by the NFL for his ‘caution’ cleats he wore during the game two weeks back at home against the Cleveland Browns.

He had initially planned to wear the cleats only during pregame but opted to keep them on all game. The fine for a violation is $6,076. Jackson wore the NFL-approved pink cleats against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.

Jackson said he didn’t appeal the fine. He said he wore the cleats to bring attention to not only police brutality but also violence within communities.

The NFL is cracking down more and more on the cleats players wear, as Sunday during the Steelers-Jets game officials made Steelers wide out Antonio Brown take off his shoes which paid honor to Mummahad Ali, or they threatened to throw him out of the game.

Jordan Reed

Redskins tight end Jordan Reed is being evaluated for a concussion after experiencing symptoms during Tuesday’s workout, Marc Sessler of reports.

This according to the team’s official Twitter account. Reed missed Wednesday’s practice and looms as a question mark for Sunday’s showdown with the Eagles.

Reed dealt with a concussion as recently as last season, an otherwise injury-marred campaign that kept the pass-catcher to just five appearances.

Redskins Defense Bottles Up Flacco and the Ravens in 16-10 Win in Baltimore

Washington Redskins v Baltimore Ravens

The Redskins abandoned their usual formula for victory — the passing of Kirk Cousins — to extend their winning streak to three.

Washington used an 85-yard punt return by Jamison Crowder and an uncharacteristically strong performance by its defense to beat the Ravens 16-10 on Sunday.

The Redskins (3-2) allowed 108 points in their first four games and came in with the league’s 29th-ranked defense. In this one, Washington gave up a touchdown on the game’s opening drive and smothered the Ravens (3-2) the rest of the way.

“The defense stepped up,” coach Jay Gruden said. “The first drive was a little scary. Here we go again. But we came back, took it personal and played well.”
