Washington Redskins rule tight end Jordan Reed out against 49ers


On Friday afternoon, it was said that Washington Redskins tight end Jordan Reed was ‘running out of time’ in regards to his ability to play Monday night against the San Francisco 49ers.

That clock has apparently struck midnight as Reed has been deemed out for Monday Night Football, this according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter:

Due to a concussion, Redskins TE Jordan Reed will not play Monday night against San Francisco.

Given the Monday night game, Reed had an extra day to potentially past the NFL’s mandatory concussion test but Reed didn’t partake in practice all week and his playing status looked in doubt considering such.

The loss of Reed will be huge considering the Redskins will also be without wide reciever Leonard Hankerson, who underwent surgery earlier this week for a torn LCL and ACL.

Logan Paulsen and former starter Fred Davis are slated to pick up the playing time, though, how they’ll be used is unknown.

The Redskins will likely lean heavily on the feet of Robert Griffin and Alfred Morris considering their weakened passing game.
