Reed caught four of seven targets for 56 yards in Sunday's 29-27 win over the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Reed finished tied for second on the team in targets, but finished fourth in yardage as Kirk Cousins spread the ball around. Reed has managed at least 56 yards in each game this season, but he has only gone as high as 70 and has still not reached the end zone. Perhaps a Week 4 matchup versus the Browns will present Reed with a breakout opportunity as the first month of the season comes to an end.

Reed led the team with five catches for 70 yards on seven targets in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

Reed saw his total targets drop after being peppered with 11 in Week 1, but he led the team in receiving yards as Kirk Cousins spread the ball around. Reed is still a favorite target of Cousins' and ranks first among NFL tight ends with 18 targets through two weeks. He will face a favorable matchup versus a Giants squad that he torched for 195 yards on 14 receptions last season.

Reed caught seven passes (on 11 targets) for 64 yards in Monday night's loss to the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

Reed got off to a quick start Monday, catching three of four targets for 39 yards on Washington's opening drive, but received more defensive attention as the game wore on. In the end, he still led the Redskins in receptions and targets, even though the Steelers grew privy to keeping him under watch. After a decent showing Monday, Reed will turn his focus to Week 2's matchup against the Cowboys, who held him to seven catches for 78 yards in two meetings last season.

Reed won't play in Wednesday's preseason contest against the Buccaneers, Master Tesfatsion of the Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Redskins are holding out the bulk of the starting unit, but for Reed the absence will be greeted warmly after tending to a sprained thumb this preseason. He'll aim to replicate his 11-touchdown 2015 campaign once the regular season kicks off on Sep. 12 against the Steelers.

Reed (thumb) caught two passes for 28 yards and a touchdown on four targets in Friday's preseason game against the Bills.

EDGE Analysis

Reed may have shown some rust with an early drop, but he made up for it by breaking wide open for a 20-yard touchdown in the second quarter. His lengthy injury history is more of a concern than the current issue, as Reed's sprained thumb should be back to full health by Week 1, if it isn't already.

Reed (thumb) is expected to play in Friday's tilt against the Bills, Master Tesfatsion of the Washington Post reports. Reed said during Monday's practice, "I definitely need to get out there on that field and go against somebody else other than our own team, work on dodging tackles and getting out of the way."

EDGE Analysis

After missing the first two preseason games with a sprained thumb, Reed is confident he'll be on the field come Friday night. While an official report may not come until Friday morning, the tight end has gone on record saying he feels physically fine for Friday's matchup. He was active in individual drills and during 1-on-1's in Monday's practice.

Reed (thumb) didn't play in Friday's preseason victory against the Jets, the Associated Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

A sprained thumb has contained Reed to street clothes for back-to-back games to kick off the preseason. If he's given the all-clear this week, he'll likely make his sole appearance before the regular season Friday against the Bills.

Reed (thumb) was a full practice participant Saturday, the Redskins' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

On Tuesday, Reed was ruled out for Thursday's incoming preseason contest with a previously undisclosed thumb issue, which may have been a ruse to help the tight end avoid any unnecessary contact. At the conclusion of Saturday's practice, the Redskins placed the ball at the 50-yard line and gave Kirk Cousins 50 seconds to direct the offense. During the drive, Cousins connected with Reed three times, including a touchdown as the clock wound to zero. With his health not much of a question, Reed should be considered ready to roll moving forward.

Reed (thumb) won't play Thursday against the Falcons.

EDGE Analysis

This is the first we've heard of Reed dealing with a thumb ailment, so the severity of the issue is unclear. In the wake of a breakout campaign in 2015, Reed finds his name near the top of fantasy TE rankings, though said status hinges on him staying healthy, especially given the injury issues that slowed him over his first two NFL seasons.

Reed was held out of minicamp on Tuesday to rest his sprained ankle, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Reed is also expected to sit out of practice on Wednesday as the Redskins plan to proceed with caution at this point in the offseason. He's proven to be a bit injury-prone over the past few seasons, but this ankle issue shouldn't linger into training camp later this summer.
