FFToday's Take: Reed has played in only six games this season and hasn't played since Week 8 due to a hamstring injury. Vernon Davis has been a disappointment the last two weeks but will once again get the start with Niles Paul filling the No.2 tight end role.

FFToday's Take: Reed hasn't played since Week 8 and will once again sit due to a hamstring injury. Vernon Davis will get the start on Thursday against the Cowboys and is in a good sport for a bounce back game after a goose-egg in Week 12.

Vernon Davis gets plus matchup
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Nov 22, 2:00 pm
|Redskins’ tight end Jordan Reed (hamstring), defensive lineman Terrell McClain (toe), safety Montae Nicholson (concussion) and offensive lineman Chase Roullier (hand surgery) have officially been ruled out for Washington’s Thanksgiving night game against the New York Giants.
It’ll be the fifth missed game this season for Reed, who caught one pass for five yards against the Dallas Cowboys on Oct. 29 before suffering a second-quarter injury. (Washington Post)|
FFToday's Take: Perhaps Reed can see the field in Week 13. Until then, it's the Vernon Davis show at tight end. He'll be on the TE1 radar against a Giants defense giving up the most fantasy points to the position.
| Jordan Reed, Pryor ruled out|
Pryor dealing with ankle injury

|Redskins tight end Jordan Reed has been ruled out for Sunday's game at New Orleans. Center Spencer Long and receiver Terrelle Pryor also have been ruled out. Pryor will see a specialist Monday for an ankle injury. (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: Reed can't get over the hump with his hamstring injury and Pryor has been a fantasy afterthought for weeks. In their absence, Vernon Davis and slot receiver Jamison Crowder should see plenty of targets against the Saints with DB Marshon Lattimore locked up on Josh Doctson.

|Tight end Jordan Reed and left tackle Trent Williams both are working off to the side, going through agility drills and some resistance training. Terrelle Pryor is not at practice yet today. It's uncertain the reason for his absence. Jamison Crowder, who was absent Wednesday, has returned. (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: It sounds like Reed will classified as "limited" with his hamstring injury. Until he gets in a full practice, fantasy owners should not consider him for lineups in Week 11. Vernon Davis and Jamison Crowder should be popular targets for Kirk Cousins against the Vikings.

FFToday's Take: So it goes with Reed. He was limited in practice Wednesday and Thursday but missed on Friday. Vernon Davis will once again be on the TE1 radar in a matchup against the Vikings.

Redskins receivers do individual drills

|Redskins TE Jordan Reed, G Brandon Scherff, WR Jamison Crowder, TE Niles Paul, C Spencer Long, G Shawn Lauvao all are going through individual drills. All did not play Sunday. (ESPN)|
FFToday's Take: Reed and Crowder missed Week 9 but hope to be back on the field in Week 10 against the Vikings. Both are dealing with hamstring injuries.
| Jordan Reed out, Crowder questionable|
Vernon Davis to start at TE
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 3, 1:30 pm
|Washington ruled out TEs Jordan Reed and Niles Paul for Sunday at Seattle. OT Trent Williams doubtful, RB Rob Kelley and Jamison Crowder Q. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Reed will miss Week 9 with a hamstring injury while Crowder will go through a workout on Saturday to determine his status. Crowder has missed practice all week. If he sits, Ryan Grant should see increased work along side Josh Doctson and Terrelle Pryor.
| Jordan Reed listed as questionable|
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Sep 30, 1:10 pm
|The Washington Redskins head into Monday night’s matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs with running back Rob Kelley (rib), wide receiver Jamison Crowder (hamstring) tight end Jordan Reed (rib/sternum) as questionable. The Pro Bowl tight end is confident he can play Monday evening as he’s been regaining strength and functionality in his core. As he’s been limited in practices recently, Reed’s worked with the wide receivers during individual drills. (Redskins.com)|
FFToday's Take: It sounds like both Kelley and Reed will give it a go Monday night. It would be wise for Reed owners to grab Vernon Davis off the waiver wire (if possible) in case he's a surprise inactive. Kelley should slide back into the starting role over Samaje Perine.

Vernon Davis becomes viable TE2

|Washington TE Jordan Reed (rib) is considered a game-time call, per source, but is more unlikely to play vs. Raiders. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: The Redskins and Raiders play Sunday night, leaving Reed owners in a bind but grabbing Vernon Davis off the waiver wire would be a prudent move. Reed injured his ribs and suffered a SC joint ligament sprain in his shoulder last week against the Rams.

#Redskins TE Jordan Reed (rib/sternum) was limited in practice today, Gruden says. "Pain is becoming manageable...see how he does tomorrow." (Redskins on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Reed is shaping up to be a gametime decision on Sunday night football against the Raiders. Owners should have plan B in place.

Rib cartilage injury and SC joint ligament strain
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Sep 20, 5:00 pm
|Redskins tight end Jordan Reed sat out of practice Wednesday because of his rib cartilage injury and a SC joint ligament strain. Reed suffered the injuries during the Redskins' 27-20 win over the Los Angeles Rams in Week 2.
"The plan is we’ve got to get him healthy and the concern is he’s not healthy right now," Redskins coach Jay Gruden said. (Washington Times)|
FFToday's Take: Add rib and shoulder issues on to Reed's already ailing foot. This doesn't sound promising for Jordan Reed's chances of playing against the Raiders but we'll have to see if he's able to practice later in the week. Vernon Davis is next up on the depth chart and would be a serviceable TE2 should Reed sit.

Rib injury for RB, chest contusion for TE
By: Doug Orth | Mon Sep 18, 5:15 pm
|Redskins HC Jay Gruden says RB Rob Kelley (rib cartilage) and TE Jordan Reed (chest contusion) are day-to-day. Nothing major. (NFL.com - Ian Rapoport)|
FFToday's Take: It appears Kelley got lucky, as the team had feared a fractured rib. Gruden hinted Monday he expects to have a better idea about his running back's status by Wednesday. Reed is unlikely to miss any time with the chest injury, although his toe remains a concern. As of now, expect both players to play next Sunday night against the Raiders.
