Redskins TE Jordan Reed to miss at least eight weeks after being placed on IR
There has been plenty of speculation regarding the potential return Washington Redskins tight end Jordan Reed. Unfortunately, it appears his status for the 2019 NFL season has now taken a turn for the worst.
Reed still has yet to make his season debut after suffering a concussion during the preseason. According to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, he is reportedly going to be placed on injured reserve.
Redskins are placing TE Jordan Reed on injured reserve, per source.
Reed will now have to miss at least eight weeks if Washington hopes to have him return at some point this season, however, that hardly seems likely given his track record with injuries.
This team is currently in the midst of a tumultuous point in the year after the recent firing of head coach Jay Gruden. It is safe to say that there will not be much reason for Reed to try and come back during the 2019 campaign given they are still looking for their first win of the 2019 NFL season and will likely be ruled out of the playoffs within the next few weeks.
Regardless, there is still some concern regarding whether or not Reed should consider retirement. He has dealt with the injury bug throughout his entire career and his durability has seemingly taken a turn for the worst after suffering from lingering concussion symptoms for the last two months.
Reed will certainly have plenty of evaluating to do over the next couple of months before he is officially eligible to make his return.
