Redskins HC Jay Gruden says Jordan Reed might have played his last game of the season

Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden has some concerns when it comes to the recent injury to tight end Jordan Reed.

Reed suffered a toe injury in Sunday’s embarrassing 40-16 loss to the New York Giants, which caused him to leave the game midway through the first quarter.

And Gruden isn’t exactly sure if or when Reed will return to the field this season for the team.

From the AP:

Gruden said “there is a level of concern” with Reed, who leads the team with 54 catches and 558 receiving yards.

Gruden added that the Redskins will have to wait to see “if it’s one week, two weeks or the rest of the year.”

NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport expanded further on Reed’s situation on Monday afternoon, and it sounds like Gruden’s fears may be warranted.

Here what’s Rapoport had to say via Twitter:

#Redskins TE Jordan Reed, who suffered a foot sprain in Sunday’s loss, is having a precautionary MRI. The injury isn’t believed to be major, but given the timing of it, he may have played his last down this season with three games to go.

Losing Reed would be yet another tough blow to the Redskins’ offense, which will see their fourth quarterback under center this season when Josh Johnson gets the start on Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars..

And while Washington still has a shot at making the playoffs with a 6-7 record at this point in the season, the decimated offense could make that accomplishment much hard to achieve.
