Redskins TE Jordan Reed has multiple sprains, concussion

Monday October 5th, 2015

Washington Redskins coach Jay Gruden announced Monday that tight end Jordan Reed has multiple sprains and a concussion, according to the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. 

Reed left Sunday's victory over the Eagles in the fourth quarter with an apparent concussion, an injury that was confirmed by a team spokesman hours later. He appeared to suffer an ankle injury earlier in the game, but returned. He took a hit to the head with 42 seconds remaining, knocking him out of the game.

Reed has sprains to his MCL and ankle. 

Reed suffered two concussions while playing college football at Florida, and he dealt with concussion issues during his rookie NFL season in 2013. The Redskins shut him down for the final six games of that season due to lingering headaches. Reed also missed five games in 2014 with a hamstring injury.

The third-year pro leads the Redskins in receiving yards (278), and also shares the team lead for receptions with Pierre Garcon (24).
