The Redskins have won their last three games, but their chances of extending it to four in a row could be impacted by tight end Jordan Reed’s availability.

Reed did not practice on Wednesday and coach Jay Gruden said after the session that Reed is being evaluated for a concussion. Gruden said, via Rich Tandler of, that Reed reported symptoms to the team on Tuesday.

Reed has battled a variety of injuries over the course of his career, including several concussions. Those injuries have been more effective at stopping Reed than opposing defenses, which have given up 120 catches for 1,268 yards and 13 touchdowns since the start of last season.

If Reed is diagnosed with a concussion, he’ll face a short window to get cleared in time to face the Eagles this Sunday. Vernon Davis and Niles Paul are the other tight ends on Washington’s active roster.

    How do you get a concussion on your day off?

    According to Guru Belichick, your best ability is your availability.

    Easily…it occurred during the game but he had delayed reaction. Happened to one of my players…player called me said hospital was releasing him. He felt fine. Then 2 days later I was informed player had severe concussion….missed 2 weeks.

    We can beat the Eagles with our backups. At the end of the Sunday the Redskins are going to be tied with the Dallas Team atop the NFC East.

    He’s a top-2/3 tight end in the NFL right now, the Redskins need him!

    Not a fan of the team, but this guy is a beast. But if this is truly a concussion, he may want to start seriously thinking about his future. This will be 5 in 3 years. That’s serious stuff.
