Washington Redskins rookie tight end Jordan Reed was expected to play in last week’s game against the New York Giants, but he suffered a setback on his concussion shortly before kick-off and had to be ruled inactive. It was a tough blow for the Redskins offense, and the setback caused Reed, who missed the previous week’s game against the San Francisco 49ers as well, to re-enter the league’s mandatory concussion protocol testing.
Reed returned to practice on Thursday, and the Redskins have officially listed the Florida product as questionable for this week’s matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs. His status remains cloudy, but he is likely to make his return to the team this week. Reed stated that he feels better than he did last week, and he also reportedly stated that he will play on Sunday.
While that remains to be seen, Reed does have a better chance of playing this week, and the only thing that held him out of last week’s game was a sudden setback. At this point, a second setback would have to happen in order for Reed to miss this week’s game, and fantasy owners have to start Reed if he is healthy enough to play. He’s going to be a big factor against the Chiefs tough defense, and he is unquestionably the Redskins No. 2 target in the passing game.
