Jordan Reed was added to the Washington Redskins’ injury report on Thursday because he was limited in practice with a strained quadriceps.

Reed, who has an extensive injury history — including with his left quadriceps — participated as normal in practice on Wednesday.

“He just had a little tweak today,” coach Jay Gruden said. “I think it’s minor. We just held him out of a period or two.”

The Redskins have two other tight ends on the roster in Derek Carrier and Anthony McCoy, who was inactive for the season opener against the Miami Dolphins because he had only joined the team the previous week.

Gruden said McCoy has “picked [the offense] up very well” this week during practice, but conceded that “the injury report will have a major effect on whether or not we dress three tight ends.”

Wide receiver DeSean Jackson (strained left hamstring), cornerback Justin Rogers (plantar fasciitis) and inside linebacker Martrell Spaight (concussion) did not practice on Thursday. Nose tackle Terrance Knighton, who bruised his ribs in the opener, returned to practice in a limited fashion after sitting out on Wednesday, and right tackle Tom Compton was again limited in practice with a bruised left calf.

Left tackle Trent Williams (unspecified ankle injury), cornerback DeAngelo Hall (bruised ribs), center Kory Lichtensteiger (unspecified finger injury) and outside linebacker Jackson Jeffcoat (bruised right calf) all completed a full practice on Thursday. Williams, Hall and Lichtensteiger were limited in Wednesday’s practice.
