Jordan Reed says he’ll be able to play all 16 games this year

When Jordan Reed has been healthy in his first two NFL seasons, he’s shown signs of being a productive receiver at tight end.

The problem for Reed and the Redskins has been that Reed isn’t healthy often enough. He’s missed 12 games due to a variety of injuries and was hampered by a knee problem this spring and Reed’s aware that all his other abilities don’t matter much if he can’t check the availability box.

Reed says he’s changed his diet — no bread, no fried foods — and that he’s stretching more than he did in the past in hopes of doing everything he can to stop the cycle of injuries.

“Anything can happen on any play,” Reed said, via ESPN.com. “But it is in my control to make sure I’m doing extra to make sure I can stop the nagging injuries from getting worse. … I’m excited, I feel it will be a good year for me. I’ll be able to play all 16 games.”

If Reed, DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garçon are all healthy for Washington this season, Robert Griffin III will have a good group of targets to work with as he tries to improve on the last two seasons and solidify his spot on the team in 2016.

  1. Hail to the REDSKINS. You lemmings do understand we’ll be singing that when we are all dead and buried? The liberal attitude started its rapid decent last night during the first Republican debates; enjoy your faux-offended white-guilt why you can lemmings!

    Get back with me when the next Bureau of Indian affairs poll comes back with something more substantial than 9% offended while 91% of Native Americans are NOT.

    BTW, I am 100% Sioux-Chim from Devils Lake North Dakota Res 54. You can see us in Chicago in December when 5,000 of us will be there with our pro-REDSKIN rally; like last year in Arizona (which was oddly not reported here in PFT…hmmm).

  2. He could have been the next Tebow; until Weis reassigned him to begin the Driskel era.

  3. Yeah right…this dude would break his finger pickin a booger. Lazy football player too. Gives almost no effort blocking. Thanks to him, a guy like Paulsen is still on team..

  4. The REAL question in Washington is who will play more games this season? Reed or Ginger Rogers Griffin. Both are so undependable as players that you just cannot build a team around either of them.

    I’ll take Reed over Ginger any day – Reed doesn’t develop turf ego like Ginger does when he is nearly sacked.
