Jordan Reed TE WAS 1 month ago3 Comments

Reed underwent a "little procedure" on his sore knee, but is expected to be ready for training camp, ESPN's John Keim reports.

Reed reported general knee soreness during Redskins OTAs last week, and after further evaluation, the team has decided to take a head-on approach to the issue. Rather than let it linger and hope it resolves itself, Reed underwent a seemingly minor procedure. It will shut him down for the remainder of OTAs, but if coach Jay Gruden's assertion holds true, Reed will be out on the field with his teammates when Redskins camp opens July 24.

Reed was evaluated for soreness in his knee as Redskins OTAS opened Tuesday, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports.

Staying healthy has been Reed's biggest challenge through two seasons, but this doesn't sound like anything serious. While he's already missed 16 games in his career, Reed has impressively caught 76.6 percent of his targets for 7.8 YPT, despite dealing with poor quarterback play. There is some concern that Niles Paul could eat into his targets, but if healthy, Reed is one of the league's better receiving threats at tight end.

Reed was targeted four times in Saturday's 27-24 win over the Eagles, finishing with just two catches for five yards.

We called Reed a "boom-or-bust" fantasy prospect before this game, and he came down firmly on the bust side of the equation Saturday night. He has topped 25 receiving yards just once in his last six contests, making it difficult to have much faith in him as a fantasy prospect in Week 17.

Reed (non-injury) is active for Saturday's game against Philadelphia.

As previously noted, Reed was never in any danger of missing this game with his non-injury issue. It seems reasonable to categorize him as a boom-or-bust fantasy tight end for the remainder of the year, as he followed up a 123-yard game three weeks ago with just six catches for 38 yards in the two games since then.

Reed (non-injury) is probable for Sunday's game against Philadelphia.

Reed always has the potential to have a productive receiving day, but his big games have been difficult to anticipate in 2014. After catching nine passes for 123 yards against the Colts three weeks ago, Reed posted just six catches for 38 yards in the two games since.

Reed (non-injury) didn't take part in practice Wednesday.

Reed's absence Wednesday wasn't related to an injury, but the true reason has yet to be revealed. As the week progresses, expect his status to receive clarification, though he won't be a great fantasy option Saturday against an Eagles defense that has surrendered a combined 11 catches for 105 yards and no touchdowns to tight ends over the last three games.

Reed caught three passes on four targets for 13 yards Sunday against the Giants.

In an injury plagued season Reed has recorded 39 catches for 390 yards and no touchdowns.

Reed had three catches on seven targets for 25 yards Sunday against the Rams.

A week after catching nine passes on 11 targets for 123 yards against the Colts, Reed posted his sixth game this season with fewer than 55 yards. Making matters worse, Sunday's game was just his eighth this year. Starting quarterback Colt McCoy suffered a neck injury late in the fourth quarter, and unless he recovers quickly, Robert Griffin could be back under center in Week 15 against the Giants, though Reed hasn't done nearly enough on a consistent basis to warrant significant fantasy attention.

Reed (hamstring) had nine catches on 11 targets for 123 yards Sunday against the Colts.

Reed, who did not play in Week 12 against the 49ers due to the hamstring injury, was heavily used in the second half to post his first 100-yard game of the season. Quarterback Colt McCoy seems very comfortable throwing to his tight end, something he may have to do even more in Week 14 against the Rams if wideout DeSean Jackson is unable to play after suffering a leg injury against the Colts.

Reed (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against the Colts.

Reed was able to practice all week, including a full session Friday, which will allow him to slot back into the starting lineup after missing last weekend's game against the 49ers due to the injury. He returns to a decent matchup, as the Colts are allowing the 13th-most passing yards per game this season.
