Jordan Reed questionable with concussion

Washington tight end Jordan Reed has been listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Eagles.

Reed suffered a concussion last week, believed to be the sixth concussion he has suffered. It’s surprising he’s listed only as questionable, as a player with a history of concussions would almost certainly be advised by the medical staff to take at least a week off after suffering another one.

Also listed as questionable are linebacker Su’a Cravens, cornerback Bashaud Breeland and cornerback Dashaun Phillips.

Washington’s first-round draft pick, receiver Josh Doctson, is still out with an Achilles injury.

    His sixth documented concussion… I’m a big Reed fan. He’s a huge part of the Redskins’ offense when healthy; he might be the best receiving TE in the league. But that’s scary. The more concussions you suffer, the easier they are to incur, which is part of why we see guys like Reed for whom the concussions seem to stack up. I wish him a speedy recovery and safety in the future.

    Every concussion after the first leaves irreversible brain damage. I feel sorry for Reed after football.

    It would be crazy for him to play or to allow him to play this week. Maybe this season.

    Maybe someone should check these Washington fans calling Reed the best receiving tight end in the league for concussions. Last I checked Gronk was still around, and I’m pretty sure Greg Olson and Jimmy Graham would also like to say “hello.” Reed’s numbers have been great over the last season but lets rope it in a bit. This is why people don’t take Washington fans serious.

    Wish him well, but at what point is somebody going to step in and protect this young man, or at least give him some good advice. Troy Polamalu was a great player, but he too suffered multiple concussions and stayed around too long. He was very bright and articulate. The last time I heard him interviewed he sounded like Joe Frazier. It’s sad.

    Talk to any professional analyst or anyone who follows the sport closely. Reed is pretty much universally recognized as a top TE, and for good reason.

    Greg OlsEn (not the Jaguars OC Greg OlsOn) and Gronk are great. Neither of them are the same TYPE of TE as Jordan Reed. Reed is a better route runner than both, and a better receiver than Olsen. Both Olsen and Gronk are better blockers. But what the heck has Jimmy Graham done in the last few seasons? Graham doesn’t even have an edge in terms of health.

    @najacoo22 I’m not saying Reed isn’t good. I’m just saying DC fans have suddenly decided he is the best TE in the league and (like usual) they get their panties in an uproar if someone hands them a reality check. Yes I know Gronk’s numbers/health aren’t great this year but when he’s in the zone he’s unstoppable. Also Graham hasn’t been great in Seattle, but it wasn’t too long ago that he was doing some pretty amazing things with Drew Brees. (BTW he has 50 yds and 1 TD less than Reed despite missing week 1 AND already having a bye week…two 100+ yd games in 4 weeks ain’t too shabby).

    Jordan Reed is NOT the best TE in football. Being a good receiver just makes him a big wide out, Plenty of TEs can catch but not block and visa versa. My vote goes to Greg Olson as the best but. ..this article isn’t about that. This kid has had SIX concussions!! Why is he not being told to retire! Soon the NFLPA will catch up and realize that Junior Seau and Andre Waters ect suicides should be used as examples of players playing too long after concussions. If they were MADE to retire they might be holding grandbabies now. What’s more important ..Football or the health ( even life) of these kids I hope somebody shows him the graves and wheelchairs of players that stuck around too long and at least take more time to realize it’s not to late to walk st 45 yrs old

    Rest up Jordan, Skins aren’t going anywhere and you will be working with a new QB next year anyway.

    Such a shame these guys keep playing after multiple concussions to end up walking vegetables. 2 or 3 in a career is bad. 8 is borderline suicide. But I guess they know nothing else and no one will advise them to get out while they still have a functioning brain.
