Redskins TE Reed evaluated for concussion


ASHBURN, Va. — Washington Redskins tight end Jordan Reed was being evaluated for a concussion and missed practice Wednesday, putting his status for Sunday’s game vs. the Philadelphia Eagles in question.

Reed played the entire game in the Week 5 win over the Baltimore Ravens, but when he returned for work Tuesday, he complained of concussion-like symptoms. He has not yet officially been diagnosed with a concussion, however.

Reed has suffered at least four concussions in college and the NFL. He missed the final four games in his rookie season of 2013 because of a concussion. And he missed two games with a concussion last season.

Redskins coach Jay Gruden said the Redskins were taking the cautious approach.

“I’m not considering it a concussion until we get all the results,” Gruden said. “He just had some symptoms it doesn’t mean it is. We just want to make sure we take all the right steps.”

Reed leads the Redskins with 33 receptions for 316 yards and two touchdowns. The Redskins like to use all three of their tight ends; they also have veterans Vernon Davis and Niles Paul, who has also played fullback this season.
