FF Today's Take: Jordan Reed (concussion) still needs to get clearance from doctors before participating in practice. He's shaping up to be questionable for Week 14 after suffering a headache prior to last Sunday's game.

Expected to play Sunday night
|Washington Redskins tight end Jordan Reed has been cleared to play Sunday night against the New York Giants, a source told FOXSports.com. (Fox Sports)|
FF Today's Take: Reed was limited in practice this week due to a concussion but has been cleared to play. He'll be a TE1 Sunday night against the Giants.

Expected to play this weekend

FF Today's Take: Reed missed last week's game with a concussion but should be back on the field Sunday night against the Giants and resume his TE1 status.

Will miss Week 12 with concussion

FF Today's Take: With Reed out, the Redskins will lean on Logan Paulsen and Fred Davis at the tight end position. Neither are recommended fantasy plays due to the expected committee approach.

Has yet to pass concussion tests
|Rookie tight end Jordan Reed missed a third straight day of practice because of a concussion that he suffered in last Sunday’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles. “He’ll go through the protocol again tomorrow and we’ll see how he does,” Shanahan said. (Washington Post)|
FF Today's Take: While the Redskins have yet to rule out their tight end, it's looking more and more like he won't play in Week 12. He does have an extra day however, as the Redskins don't play until Monday night. Fantasy owners of Reed should have plan B in place.

Suffered concussion in Week 11
|Washington Redskins tight end Jordan Reed was held out of practice on Thursday. Reed sustained a concussion in Week 11 versus the Philadelphia Eagles and was subsequently held out for the rest of the game. He will need to pass the NFL's concussion protocol before suiting up again. Because of the Monday night game time versus the San Francisco 49ers, Thursday marked the Redskins' first practice of the week, which allows plenty of time for Reed to get clearance. However, there is no guarantee of that happening. (WSOC-TV)|
FF Today's Take: With Washington playing on Monday night, owners would be wise to have another option in place for Reed. So unless there is a definitive report before Sunday that suggests he will suit up, it is probably best to assume he will not. Two solid fantasy options for this week that are likely readily available in leagues are Tennessee's Delanie Walker and Houston's Garrett Graham.
| Hankerson out, Morgan to start -- Wed Nov 20 2:00 pm --|
Hankerson placed on IR with torn LCL
|Redskins wide receiver Leonard Hankerson will miss the remainder of the season with a torn lateral collateral ligament in his left knee, coach Mike Shanahan said. Shanahan said Josh Morgan will start in Hankerson’s place. (Washington Post)|
FF Today's Take: Morgan will be third in line for targets in the passing game behind Pierre Garcon and TE Jordan Reed so his fantasy value will hover in the WR4/5 range.
| Jordan Reed questionable for Week 12 -- Mon Nov 18 6:15 pm --|
Concussion; Leonard Hankerson likely out for season
|Rookie TE Jordan Reed sustained a concussion Sunday. HC Mike Shanahan said Reed was undergoing the normal concussion protocol, and it won’t be known until later in the week if he’ll play Monday night against the San Francisco 49ers.
Shanahan also said Leonard Hankerson injured the LCL in his left knee during Sunday’s loss at Philadelphia, and MRI exam results were positive. The coach said it wouldn’t be known for a couple days whether the injury would require surgery, which would end Hankerson’s season. (Washington Post)|
FF Today's Take: Reed was in on just 33 snaps in Week 11, his lowest total in eight weeks and the results for Washington were predictable, especially since Pierre Garcon complained his ankle was "hurting him badly" following the team's loss to Philadelphia. Reed has emerged as an every-week starter in fantasy, making his potential absence next week a damaging one. Hankerson's loss likely clears the way for more playing time for Santana Moss, Josh Morgan and/or Aldrick Robinson.
|TE Fred Davis on shaky ground -- Wed Sep 18 9:45 am --|
Jordan Reed the preferred option in Week 2
|Fred Davis, who finished the game with one catch on two targets, wasn’t targeted after the third quarter and played only five snaps in the second half. Davis blew several assignments, according to multiple people with knowledge of the situation, and it’s believed that those errors are what prompted Shanahan to go away from him. (Washington Post)|
FF Today's Take: Jordan Reed played 29 snaps while Paulsen played 25 and Davis just 16 in Week 2. Perhaps it's just a wake-up call for Davis, but for now it appears Reed is the tight end to own in Washington.
