Jordan Reed diagnosed with another concussion

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.

    Sad for him. He’s a monster on the field. Hate to see a guy go through his. Might be time to hang em up Jordan.

    Between Reed and Jordan Cameron, it’s not been a good week for talented tight ends with concussion issues. Suffering from that many concussions has to be so frightening.

    Hang up the cleats….it’s not worth it to have a scrambled brain.

    That is worrisome to say the least.

    As an Eagle fan I should be happy. But I’m not. Injuries continue to savage the NFL this year. And the owners want an 18 game schedule. Just look at the carnage through 5 weeks.

    Now Zac is on the Josh alper wagon calling the REDSKINS by their name. Hop on wagon, florio and mds!! The fad of refusing to call them REDSKINS is long gone! Only was around for a year until natives spoke up not having any issues.

    RE: Jordan, rough loss. Best TE in league, bar none.

    With everything we know about concussions and the future problems, I’d hold a press conference immediately to announce my retirement.

    Feel bad for the guy, but at what point does his team need to tell him he is too prone to concussions to continue playing?

  10. justbegbaby says: Oct 13, 2016 3:22 PM

    Beginning of the end for him. Sad.

    I fear this isn’t going to end well. I’ve had two concussions in my life and I’ve had headaches almost daily for over 20 years. SIX is Steve Young, Troy Aikman territory. That’s why they retired. I hope this doesn’t hurt him long term.

    Trump doesn’t think its a big deal.

    5th concussion, not 6th, since his college days – but still a ton.

  14. jimmyjohns01 says: Oct 13, 2016 3:26 PM

    If the NFL is really serious about concussions, there should be an automatic IR rule for players diagnosed with a specified amount of concussions within a number of games or single season.

    How many concussions before you have to stop playing?

  16. rtl1984 says: Oct 13, 2016 3:29 PM

    Dude, need to start thinking about your future. 6? 6 concussions? At this rate, he’ll never remember playing football at all.

  17. ipskipskyblue says: Oct 13, 2016 3:30 PM

    Time to hang it up, if the league wants to get serious about it they need to put a cap on the number of concussions you can have. Most colleges do.

    another Eagles fan…. feel bad for the guy/concerned for his long term well being. great player but when you start getting concussions without knowing exactly how/when it happens, maybe it’s time not to play football any more.

  19. zoneread510 says: Oct 13, 2016 3:55 PM

    People used to say I got concussions all the time playing football (high school). I am now 30 and have no memory problems, at least that I can remember. Go Oilers!!

  20. johnodocks says: Oct 13, 2016 3:58 PM

    The story doesn’t explain. Were the symptoms due to a hit he took in Sunday’s game or did they just show up out of the blue on Tuesday?

  21. dreadnok89 says: Oct 13, 2016 4:02 PM

    Just retire bro

  22. arwiv says: Oct 13, 2016 4:02 PM

    He needs to quit. Sadly he’s probably already screwed.

  23. sc5000 says: Oct 13, 2016 4:12 PM

    When is the league gonna look into targeting of players who have had concussions throughout their career. This is not news to his opponents and I’ve seen him take some brutal high shots out there.

  24. 4sacroc says: Oct 13, 2016 4:45 PM

    Hillary has had at least seven.

  25. fiddlinred says: Oct 13, 2016 5:25 PM

    First of all, his medical condition and career decisions are none of our business.
    Second, Ya’ll are about to get to know Niles Paul. Grab him in your fantasy league.

    5 in the NFL & 2 at Florida that have been confirmed? That has to be a bit concerning. With all of the attention and health issues, should he even be let back on a field again?
