Redskins tight end Jordan Reed will not play in Monday’s game against the San Francisco 49ers with continuing concussion symptoms.
Reed was listed as “out” on the team’s injury report submitted on Saturday afternoon. He did not practice all week after sustaining a concussion in last Sunday’s 24-16 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.
That takes away Washington’s second-leading receiver in receptions (45) and yards (499). He also has three touchdowns on the season. That means tight end Fred Davis, a former starter who has been inactive the past five games, will play on Monday.
Reed was scheduled to undergo concussion testing again on Saturday. No word on if he passed, but even if he did the window to play against San Francisco had closed. Reed needs to be cleared for an off-field workout, but also must go through a non-contact practice and then a full-contact practice before he can play. The Redskins are off on Sunday.
Three other players were listed as questionable for the 49ers game. Defensive end Stephen Bowen reinjured his right knee during the Philadelphia game. He’s already playing with a torn posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) in that knee. Fullback Darrel Young suffered a strained hamstring during practice on Wednesday. And safety Jose Gumbs is also questionable with an ankle injury. He was limited in practice on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
Two other players were listed as probable: Cornerback Josh Wilson has a toe injury, but practiced on Friday. Corner E.J. Biggers escaped serious damage from a knee injury during the Eagles game. An MRI on Monday came back clean and he practiced on Wednesday Thursday and Friday.
San Francisco will be without starting cornerback Tarell Brown. He has a rib injury. Offensive left guard Mike Iupati (sprained MCL), also a starter, and wide receiver Quinton Patton (foot) are out, too.
Tight end Garrett Celek (hamstring), wide receiver Mario Manningham (knee) and defensive tackle Ray McDonald (ankle) were all listed as questionable to play Monday. McDonald and Celek did not practice on Saturday.
Manningham was limited in practice all week. The former New York Giants star has four receptions in two games for San Francisco since returning from torn anterior cruciate (ACL) and posterior cruciate ligaments (PCL) last Dec. 23.
