Washington tight end Jordan Reed out against Eagles

Friday September 19th, 2014

Washington tight end Jordan Reed will not play Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles, the team announced Friday.

Reed will miss his second straight game after he injured his hamstring during Week 1. He had one catch for 4 yards in the season opener. As a rookie last season, he had 45 catches for 499 yards and three touchdowns.

Backup tight end Niles Paul leads the team with 12 catches for 185 yards and a touchdown this season.

Wide receiver DeSean Jackson is questionable for Sunday's game against his former team. Jackson injured his shoulder last week against the Jaguars and was limited during Friday's practice.

Quarterback Robert Griffin III was also hurt against the Jaguars when he dislocated his ankle during the first quarter, and backup Kirk Cousins will start for Washington. Griffin will not be placed on injured reserve

Washington plays the Eagles at 1 p.m. on Sunday in Philadelphia.
