Jordan Reed subject to additional concussion testing this week

← return to Redskins Watch

Tight end Jordan Reed will again be subject to the NFL’s concussion protocol after experiencing a slight headache after warming up before the Washington Redskins’ loss to the New York Giants on Sunday.

Reed returned to practice last week after sitting out the Redskins’ loss to the San Francisco 49ers on that Monday. He passed concussion tests on Tuesday, and both he and coach Mike Shanahan professed Reed would be ready to face the Giants before he felt discomfort following a workout roughly three hours before the game.

The tight end is currently second on the team with 45 catches and 499 yards and also has caught three touchdown passes.

Strong safety Reed Doughty also sustained a concussion, his second of the season, in the second quarter, meaning he will also need to pass testing before he’s able to return to practice. Doughty missed the Redskins’ game against the Denver Broncos on Oct. 27 after leaving the game against the Chicago Bears the previous Sunday.

Inside linebacker London Fletcher sprained one of his ankles, Shanahan said, while cornerback DeAngelo Hall is also experiencing soreness in one of his hips. Each player will undergo additional evaluation over the next two days.

Tight end Niles Paul, who was not at the facility all last week and was inactive on Sunday, has recovered from his illness enough to be at Redskins Park on Monday, but is “not totally out of it,” Shanahan said.
