Avoid all Washington players in Week 5

FFToday's Take: Hopefully you're not in a position where you need to play the Redskins quarterback. In other news, WR Terry McLaurin (hamstring) will be a gametime decision. Tight ends Vernon Davis and Jordan Reed will miss with concussions meaning Jeremy Sprinkle will likely start at tight end.

|TE Jordan Reed And C Chase Roullier have been ruled out. WR Terry McLaurin and RG Brandon Scherff are questionable. Will be a game time decision for both. (John Keim on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: McLaurin came up lame on Thursday with a hamstring injury and didn't practice on Friday. This isn't good. Owners should have plan B in place. Paul Richardson and Trey Quinn would likely be the top wide receiver targets against the Giants if McLaurin can't go. Robert Davis would also see increased action.
| Jordan Reed out for Week 2|
Missed practice Friday

|The Redskins will once again be without key players for a game. Tight end Jordan Reed was ruled out of Sunday's game vs. Dallas Cowboys with his concussion. Defensive end Jonathan Allen also was ruled out after suffering a Grade 1 knee sprain in the season opener. (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: Reed did more in practice this week but is still in the concussion protocol. He missed practice Friday. Vernon Davis will once again be a tight end streamer in a matchup against the Cowboys.

Didn't make the trip to Philadelphia

|Was told Jordan Reed did not make the trip to Philadelphia. (John Keim on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Reed suffered a brutal hit in the Redskins third pre-season game and remains in the concussion protocol. Vernon Davis will get the start but is more of a TE2 given the poor offensive situation in Washington and a tough matchup against the Eagles.

Remains in concussion protocol

FFToday's Take: Reed has suffered seven documented concussions, so there is no guarantee he'll be ready this week or anytime soon. Desperate fantasy owners may want to pivot to proven backup Vernon Davis, although a Week 1 matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles isn't the greatest.

In concussion protocol
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Aug 27, 11:45 am
|Redskins coach Jay Gruden said he expects tight end Jordan Reed to be available for the season opener at Philadelphia. Reed entered the concussion protocol after a hit in Thursday's preseason win at Atlanta. "We're quite confident that Jordan will be fine," Gruden said. That's good news for a team whose passing game revolves largely around Reed. (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: Reed suffered a vicious hit in the Redskins third pre-season game. Given his history of concussion, it's somewhat surprising Reed hasn't called it a career. The tight end has looked fresh in camp but comes with big red flag for injury risk.

Injured in Redskins third pre-season game

|Injury updates: Redskins TE Jordan Reed is being evaluated for a concussion and is out for the game ... #Packers rookie 1st round pick LB Rashan Gary has left the game with an unspecified injury. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Reed has a past history of concussions to go along with foot and toe issues so a firm diagnosis wouldn't be good. Reed has yet to play a full 16-game season and has scored only 4 TDs in his last 19 games.
