Redskins tight end Jordan Reed has been diagnosed with a concussion, Redskins coach Jay Gruden told reporters Thursday.
Gruden said Reed is in the NFL’s concussion protocol and will continue to be evaluated.
Though Gruden wouldn’t officially rule out Reed for Sunday’s game vs. the Eagles, it seems unlikely he would be cleared to play. It’s the sixth documented concussion for Reed since his college days.
Reed reported concussion-like symptoms on Tuesday and was held out of practice while being further evaluated on Wednesday.
Reed leads the Redskins with 33 receptions for 316 yards on the season. He’s been a good player when healthy since entering the league and has been especially good over the last two seasons. Reed has 120 catches for 1,268 yards and 13 touchdowns since the start of the 2015 season.
Both Vernon Davis and Niles Paul are in line for more snaps if Reed can’t play.
