Redskins tight end Jordan Reed will see another independent neurologist on Thursday to assess his lingering concussion symptoms.
Reed has not played since a Nov. 17 game against the Philadelphia Eagles. He had 45 receptions and three touchdowns in nine games and remains the team’s second-leading receiver. Reed has seen multiple specialists, according to Washington coach Mike Shanahan, to get a variety of opinions from experts in the field.
But after Reed again missed practice on Wednesday, with his status in doubt for this week’s game against the Dallas Cowboys, is it time to consider shutting down Reed for the season. Shanahan wasn’t ready to go that far.
“There’s the experts in this area that they’ve seen people in soccer go two, three, four months, then one day they get tested each day and they’re fine,” Shanahan said. “Sometimes it’s three weeks. So we just go with their recommendation, ‘Hey, what’s in the best interest of Jordan Reed?’…We’re going to do what we can to make sure that he’s looked at carefully, and when the doctors say that he’s ready to go, he’ll be ready to go.”
In other injury news, left tackle Trent Williams did not practice following a left knee sprain in Sunday’s loss to Atlanta. Fullback Darrel Young, who left that game with a recurring hamstring injury, was limited in practice on Wednesday.
