Jordan Reed sits out practice, questionable for Monday night


Though Washington tight end Jordan Reed didn’t take part in Saturday’s practice, coach Jay Gruden said it was a matter of giving the second-year pro a little more rest and not related to any aggravation of the hamstring injury that’s kept him out of the last three games.

Reed, who is questionable on the injury report, will work out for the club on Sunday, one day before Washington hosts Seattle.

“If he doesn’t feel like he can run full speed, then obviously we’ll hold him out,” Gruden said.

Niles Paul, the primary pass-catching threat at tight end in Reed’s absence, is also questionable for Monday night, but he put in a full practice on Saturday. Paul, who suffered a concussion in the Week Four loss to the Giants, has caught 21 passes in 28 targets, racking up 313 yards and a touchdown.

In addition to Reed and Paul, left tackle Trent Williams (knee), offensive guard Shawn Lauvao (knee), linebacker Akeem Jordan, safety Trenton Robinson (ankle) and defensive lineman Kedric Golston (groin) are questionable for Washington (1-3). Williams, Golston and Robinson were limited on Saturday, while Lauvao and Jordan practiced fully.

  1. For all the criticism of Mike Shanahan, much of it BY ME, I gotta give him credit for taking Niles Paul as a later round wr then making him a te….. Its taken time for him to develop, but he’s becoming a legit weapon, overshadowing the talented kid who’s always hurt….. Shanny also bought in Morris, Helu, T Williams, Garcon, etc…. He did improve the roster, no matter how ya slice it.
