Jordan Reed TE WAS 29 Days

Robert Griffin III believes Jordan Reed is "one of the most talented tight ends in the league."

"He's a guy that runs some of the best routes I've ever seen," RGIII continued. "Our offensive coordinator, Sean McVay, has said that you can't cover the guy. If (Reed) knows what he's doing, where he's going and he knows how he's trying to get there, you can't cover him." Reed is going to be a big part of the offense and has a chance to catch the second-most balls on the team, behind Pierre Garcon. The real concern with Reed is that he's a massive risk for concussions. He enters training camp as a mid-range TE1 with gobs of upside.

Redskins OC Sean McVay promises second-year TE Jordan Reed "is going to be a key player in our offense."

McVay spent 2013 as Washington's TEs coach, which can't hurt Reed's chances. "He's an elite route runner for the position, and he still competes with the toughness," McVay said of Reed. "He's got great feet, so he can cover guys up in the run game. I think what we'll try to do with him will maximize his skillset. He's done a great job this offseason, so he's in position to have a great year."

Jordan Reed had "another eye-opening day" at Tuesday's minicamp practice.

Reed is over his latest concussion bout, practicing without issue and doing work. "Reed is going to be such a big part of this offense if he can stay healthy," said reporter Chris Russell. With DeSean Jackson running vertical routes up the sideline and Pierre Garcon attracting attention, the middle of the field is going to be wide open for the athletically gifted Reed. He's a mid-range TE1 with significant upside if you can stomach the injury risk.

Jordan Reed he admitted to hiding a concussion that he sustained two weeks before the one that ended his season.

Reed also sustained two concussions while at the University of Florida. "I was in a bad spot for a long time," he said recently. "I didn't know if they would ever go away, but I'm past it now." Concussions can become cumulative, meaning each one a player has causes more severe symptoms and therefore gaining medical clearance takes longer. Reed brings tons of upside into the season, but also substantial injury risk.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden believes the addition of DeSean Jackson could benefit second-year TE Jordan Reed.

"We have, obviously, one of the more talented young tight ends in the NFL," Gruden said of Reed. "He's going to be a great guy to help in the middle of the field. If people want to cloud DeSean and cloud Pierre, he's going to be a guy that's very much needed in the passing game." Gruden acknowledged some concern with Reed's injury history, but the upside here is appetizing. Reed is the No. 7 tight end off the board in early fantasy drafts. His Average Draft Position is in the middle of the seventh round.

Jordan Reed said he dealt with headaches and nausea for two months last season, and "wasn't completely honest" with the coaching staff early on.

Reed's injury first publicly surfaced in Week 11, but it sounds like he may have had issues before then. Reed also suffered a concussion at the University of Florida. Reed is now 100 percent, but another concussion could lead to a protracted absence.

The Washington Post reports Jordan Reed has fully recovered from the concussion symptoms that ended his rookie season and is back to training.

Reed should be full-go for the start of offseason workouts this spring. The new Redskins coaching staff reportedly "loves" Reed. Sean McVay, the Redskins new OC, was Washington's tight ends coach in 2013. There's obviously some long-term concern surrounding Reed because of the amount of time it took him to recover, but he's going to enter summer as a mid-to-high TE1.
