Reed (shoulder) will be ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

With Reed unavailable this week, fellow tight end Vernon Davis is in line to serve as Washington's top option at the position Sunday, which vaults him into Week 13 fantasy lineup consideration.

Reed (shoulder) is a spectator at Friday's practice, Mike Jones of The Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Reed has not practiced since going for 95 yards and two touchdowns on 10 catches despite suffering a severe AC joint separation on Thanksgiving, making his absence Friday more of the same. Washington's star tight end is dealing with significantly limited range of motion, which resulted in a report Thursday that he's not expected to play against the Cardinals this weekend. Friday's injury report could confirm that expectation, which would result in Vernon Davis starting come Sunday.

Reed (shoulder) didn't practice Thursday, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

There has been no attempt by Reed to take the practice field this week. Instead, rehabilitation has been the name of the game. Earlier Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network relayed that Reed likely won't be available Sunday at Arizona, but head coach Jay Gruden was noncommittal in a post-practice media session, stating, "I'm not expecting him to play or not to play." Reed will undergo another evaluation Friday to explore whether suiting up is a possibility, meaning the release of the Redskins' last injury report this week should shed light on his upcoming availability.

Reed (shoulder) isn't expected to play in Sunday's game at Arizona, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Players are rarely ruled out in the middle of game preparation, but once the final injury report of the week is released Friday, the Redskins are a candidate to rule out Reed. With the most severe AC joint separation (Grade 3) in tow, his range of motion has been compromised, while head coach Jay Gruden called Reed's lack of activity Wednesday the result of "a lot of pain." Even if the Redskins decide to delay a decision until Sunday afternoon, Reed seems poised to yield tight end to veteran Vernon Davis for at least one week.

Reed (shoulder) was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice.

EDGE Analysis

In a post-practice media session, head coach Jay Gruden said Reed is "progressing slowly" through the Grade 3 AC joint separation in his left shoulder. Due to "a lot of pain," Reed didn't fit in much activity at all, implying that rehabilitation is dominating his schedule. Considering pain tolerance and range of motion have been cited as the determining factors for playing in a game, the tight end doesn't seem to be trending on the right path. If Reed is out or seemingly hindered Sunday in Arizona, Vernon Davis would elevate to the top TE consideration for Kirk Cousins.

Reed (shoulder) was on the sideline during the portion of Wednesday's practice open to the media, Master Tesfatsion of The Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Reed valiantly played through a Grade 3 AC joint separation last Thursday in Dallas, but adrenaline may have allowed the tight end to look like himself. Upon reconvening this week, he was an observer at Monday's practice, after which he said the range of motion in his left shoulder is approximately 30 percent. Similarly sidelined Wednesday, Reed will take a day-to-day to approach with potential practice reps, which will be dependent upon pain tolerance. His status will continue to be watched closely as the week unfolds.

Reed, who is dealing with a Grade 3 AC joint separation in his left shoulder, estimates that his range of motion at this stage is around 30 percent.

EDGE Analysis

The report notes with regard to his chances of playing Sunday against the Cardinals, that the tight end -- who did not practice Monday -- will be monitored day-by-day this week. Moreover, Reed acknowledged that he'll likely have to play through some level of pain the rest of the season. "Just gotta ice it, keep the range of motion up, keep the mobility going," Reed noted Monday. "Don't rest it too much because of the pain and try to get through it a little bit."

Reed (shoulder) is not participating in Monday's practice, but he's considered day to day going forward, ESPN's John Keim reports.

EDGE Analysis

Reed suffered a Grade 3 AC joint separation during last Thursday's loss to the Cowboys, making his status uncertain for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Jake Kring-Schreifels of Redskins.com reports. Although he impressively caught two touchdowns after sustaining the injury last week, Reed's upcoming involvement will hinge on his range of motion and ability to tolerate any further discomfort. Given his day-to-day tag, Reed's return to action at least seems possible soon, but given his importance to the Redskins, they'll certain want to avoid risking further damage. As a result, his situation will need to be continuously monitored for updates in the buildup to Sunday's game in Arizona.

Reed has been diagnosed with a Grade 3 AC joint separation in his left shoulder, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Without splitting hairs, such a diagnosis implies Reed suffered a complete separation of the AC joint when he took a hard fall Thursday at Dallas. The preceding explains why he wore a sling in the immediate aftermath, but his subsequent ability to play through the pain was commendable en route to 10 receptions for 95 yards and two touchdowns. Head coach Jay Gruden relayed that Reed may be able to suit up in the Redskins' next game in Arizona on Dec. 4, but the decision will depend on the tight end's range of motion and pain tolerance in the shoulder. Reed's activity level in practice Wednesday could give an indication whether he's trending toward active status. However, his Week 13 availability may come down to a game-time decision.
