Redskins place tight end Jordan Reed on injured reserve

Throughout the last several seasons, Washington Redskins star tight end Jordan Reed has dealt with numerous injuries that have kept him off the field.

Reed has once again fallen on that same path as his NFL future is now up in the air as the Redskins placed him on the injured reserve due to a concussion, according to John Keim of ESPN.

The Washington Redskins placed tight end Jordan Reed on injured reserve Saturday because of a concussion, casting his NFL future in doubt.

Reed is still dealing with symptoms from a concussion that he suffered in the third preseason game after a helmet-to-helmet hit from Atlanta Falcons safety Keanu Neal. In the weeks that have followed, he has yet to take the field but did make his return to practice.

He hasn’t been able to shake the injury bug over the last few seasons as he has yet to play an entire regular season in his NFL career. Reed has missed 21 games in the previous two-plus years as he has due to various ailments.

His once-promising career has been derailed by his inability to stay healthy. If Washington decides to cut him after this season, they will be able to save $8.5 million in cap space.

In his absence, the Redskins have depended on Vernon Davis to be the primary receiving option in the passing game as he has 10 catches on 19 targets with 123 receiving yards and a touchdown. The move further signals that Davis will remain the main factor at the position for likely the rest of the season.
