Washington Redskins tight end Jordan Reed (concussion) is questionable for Sunday’s game against NFC East rival Philadelphia.

Reed has missed the last three practices and is in the NFL’s concussion protocol, and while it doesn’t appear likely that Reed will suit up for the game, head coach Jay Gruden has not yet ruled him out.

“He’s going to see the doctors again and then we’ll get a better indication, hopefully this evening,” Gruden said.

“[It’s] up to [the doctors], really,” Gruden said. “If they say he’s OK, he’s OK. If Jordan feels OK, then he’ll be fine, but we wait and see, A, how Jordan is feeling and then, B, what the doctors say. Actually, the doctors are first, Jordan’s second.”

Safety Su’a Cravens (concussion) is also listed as questionable. Cravens has taken part in a bit of individual drills in practice this week, but he did not participate in team activities today. There’s no clear indication on his recovery path.

“My sense is I just wait, see what the doctor says, a independent doctor,” Gruden said of Cravens. “My sense makes no difference whatsoever, you know what I mean?”

Cornerback Bashaud Breeland (ankle) and cornerback Dashawn Phillips (hamstring) are also listed as questionable for the game.

Rookie wide receiver Josh Doctson is again out with an Achilles injury, the fourth straight game he’ll miss. Gruden said Doctson’s recovery status doesn’t appear to be getting any clearer and that the Achilles is still bothersome.

Doctson, who is currently taking up a roster spot, has made things difficult for the Redskins roster management, as they are trying to avoid placing him on the injured reserve list, but they recognize the value of that spot.

“That’s going to be the No. 1 question here pretty soon,” Gruden said of Doctson’s roster spot. “You know, fortunately, we don’t have to worry about it right now. I want to try and keep it as long as we can because if he feels good tomorrow or next week, he’ll play. You know, he’s a huge asset to this football team, so we want to give him every chance to get well.”
