Redskins QB Case Keenum is looking forward to playing with Jordan Reed

Case Keenum, Redskins

The Washington Redskins may have lost their opening game, but Case Keenum performed well for them at the quarterback position. In fact, he is excited to play with one of the team’s more established wideouts in Jordan Reed.

He played well enough with the Redskins’ offense despite lacking the team’s star tight end and kept the game close against the Philadelphia Eagles. Now that Reed is looking close to return to full health, he’s looking forward to giving him some passes.

“He’s a special player,” Keenum said to the media, via Redskins Wire’s Zachary Neel. “I haven’t played with many players like him; I’ve never played with a player that can do what he does. I’m excited to get him back out there.”

Reed had to sit out tune-up games and the season opener due to the concussion he suffered during the preseason. However, he announced that he is feeling better over the past couple of days, as reported by the Associated Press.

”I feel a lot different,” Reed said. ”I’ve put in a lot of hard work to play well this year and be at my best.”

Head coach Jay Gruden told reporters that Reed has joined plenty of team drills and is looking close to game shape. However, they will not risk to play him until the team doctors give him the clearance to play football.

It’s important to note that Reed is yet to play a full season for the Redskins. The most games he played in a season was in 2015, where he started nine of the 14 games he appeared in.

However, his health doesn’t affect his on-field productivity. He has notched 3,371 yards on 329 catches, scoring 24 touchdowns and averaging 10 yards per reception. He will be a great target for Keenum, who has a career pass accuracy of 62%.
