Redskins tight end Jordan Reed has seen multiple specialists as he tries to overcome his latest concussion.

Reed, who has been diagnosed with at least seven concussions, has yet to play this season after taking a helmet-to-helmet hit in the preseason on Aug. 22 against the Atlanta Falcons.

Over the weekend, ESPN reported the Redskins fear Reed’s injury could be career-threatening, given his history. The 29-year-old was at the Redskins’ loss Monday to the Chicago Bears and was spotted in the locker room after the game.

Coach Jay Gruden said Monday he is not worried about Reed having to possibly retire because of the injury.

“We are just trying to get to the bottom of it and figuring out the best way to make him more comfortable, get him back in the lineup,” Gruden said. “We are trying to see if there is anything else we can do to try and help him a long in that way to get into practice and start to feel better.”



The Redskins have not indicated when they expect Reed to return. The tight end hasn’t been able to fully practice while in concussion protocol.

“If he has to see a specialist every day, I really don’t care,” Gruden said. “The big thing is to get him healthy and make sure he has a great state of mind so when he does come back he feels really good and confident that this thing will not linger.”
