Vernon Davis expected to start

FF Today's Take: Kirk Cousins will be without his best weapon on Saturday against the Bears. Reed has played the last couple weeks but has been limited an ineffective. with Reed out, Vernon Davis will get the start and is a viable punt TE play.
| No more clarity regarding Jordan Reed's status -- Thu Dec 22 6:55 pm --|
No practice Thursday
|HC Jay Gruden didn’t commit one way or the other when asked about Jordan Reed.
“He didn’t do much today, obviously. Did not participate today,” Gruden said. “So, I really don’t have anything to compare it to. Obviously, (the shoulder) still bothering him a little bit, and we’ll have to gauge it tomorrow before we leave.” (The Washington Post)|
FF Today's Take: Owners should plan on being without Reed again, as he clearly wasn't right in Week 15 before getting ejected on Monday night and will only have four full days of rest before facing the Chicago Bears on Saturday. Vernon Davis is probably the best replacement option owners have in most leagues, but it should be noted Chicago has been among the stingiest defenses against tight ends this season.

Separated AC joint in shoulder
|Washington TE Jordan Reed, listed as questionable for Sunday vs Eagles due to a shoulder injury, is expected to play, per sources. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: Reed has been battling a shoulder injury for a couple weeks but should be in the lineup today albeit less than 100 percent. Reed's availability further boosts Kirk Cousin's QB1 status against an Eagles defense that is in shambles.
| Jordan Reed eyeing Week 14 return -- Thu Dec 8 8:25 pm --|
Injured shoulder feeling better

FF Today's Take: Don't go dropping Vernon Davis or any of your other tight end options quite yet. A Grade 3 AC joint separation is a "complete separation of the joint" and "both sets of ligaments in the shoulder are torn as well as the capsule that surrounds the joint", so it is highly unlikely Reed has his range of motion back. Consider him a high-risk option with a poor matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 14.

|Redskins tight end Jordan Reed has been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. Arizona because of a shoulder injury. Defensive end Anthony Lanier also is out coach Jay Gruden said. (http://www.espn.com/nfl/team/_/n)|
FF Today's Take: Reed is dealing with a serious shoulder injury that could keep him out multiple weeks so it's no surprise he'll miss Week 13. Vernon Davis will get the start and be a viable TE option however, the Cardinals have given up the fewest fantasy points to the tight end position making Davis more of a TE2.
| Jordan Reed sidelined Wednesday -- Wed Nov 30 1:15 pm --|
Separated AC joint in shoulder
|Tight end Jordan Reed remained sidelined as the Washington Redskins returned to practice Wednesday following Tuesday’s day off.
Reed, who separated the AC joint in his left shoulder in the Thanksgiving Day loss to Dallas, wore his jersey, but only watched as his teammates went through individual and unit drills. Reed hasn’t yet been ruled out for Sunday’s game in Arizona. (Washington Post)|
FF Today's Take: It's going to be a tough for Reed to play but he has yet to be ruled out. It's unlikely he'll get in any full practices this week. Reed owners should be looking for other options (Vernon Davis?) in Week 13.

Grade 3 AC joint separation
|Redskins tight end Jordan Reed, the team’s leading receiver, suffered a Grade 3 AC joint separation in his left shoulder. Reed’s left arm is in a sling, and the team is taking his situation “day by day,” Gruden said. (Washington Post)|
FF Today's Take: Reed does have a few extra days to heal but it won't be a surprise if he sits out Week 13. Reed owners should be eyeing Vernon Davis on the waiver wire.
| Matt Jones misses practice Friday -- Fri Oct 28 10:00 am --|
Rob Kelley expected to start
|Josh Norman has his helmet on, participating in the team portion of this light practice. Same for TE Jordan Reed. RB Matt Jones a no-go. (Mike Garafolo on Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: It appears Jones is going to sit this week leaving the running back duties to Rob Kelley and Chris Thompson. Thompson is the preferred option in PPR leagues with Kelley handling early-down work. RB Mack Brown has been activated from the practice squad.

TE, CB awaiting final clearance from concussion protocol
|Jordan Reed and Josh Norman, both recovering from concussions, have been cleared to travel to London tonight. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: Reed is Kirk Cousins' favorite target, so while Vernon Davis has filled in well during his absence, Reed's return should be viewed as a positive for everyone except owners of Jamison Crowder, who figures to once again lose red-zone looks now. Norman will almost certainly be tasked with following A.J. Green around. While Green should still be started in all leagues, Washington's chances of slowing him down improve greatly with Norman on the field.

Tight end declares himself 'symptom free'
|ASHBURN, Va. -- Washington Redskins tight end Jordan Reed reached this same point a week ago as a limited participant in practice. But he then missed two more days when his concussion symptoms returned.
Reed is confident this time is different.
"I'm feeling 100 percent," Reed said. "I feel symptom-free. Running back Matt Jones was a new addition to the list of injured players. The Redskins' starting back felt pain in his knee when he tried to cut. Gruden said he was OK when running straight ahead. If Jones can't play, Gruden said rookie Robert Kelley would be the starter but that third-down back Chris Thompson would remain a key part of the game plan.
FF Today's Take: Jordan Reed owners will be given a pretty good indication on his playing status if he is on the plane when the team travels to London. He still needs medical clearance so check back later in the week. The backfield situation, however, isn't so clear with Matt Jones (knee) looking iffy to play against the Bengals. Rob Kelley would get the start and split carries with Chris Thompson if Jones was held out of action. Kelley has a 4.4 YPC on 17 rushing attempts this season but without knowing how the team will deploy the carries all Washington runners are risky fantasy bets for Week 8.

Concussion will keep target monster from playing against Lions
|Master Tesfatsian (@MasterTes) on Twitter: "TE Jordan Reed will be out vs. the Lions with a concussion #Redskins" (Twitter)|
FF Today's Take: Master is a trusted source for the Washington Post and it looks like Reed is a scratch for this week. TE Vernon Davis and WR Pierre Garcon will likely pick up more targets.
