Redskins' Jordan Reed out vs. Falcons

Jordan Reed, tight end for the Washington Redskins, will be missing his fourth consecutive game this Sunday as the Redskins take on the Falcons.

From John Keim of ESPN.com,

Reed was unable to practice this week, which is why he was highly unlikely to play Sunday. In previous weeks, he was at least limited in practice. Reed suffered two concussions in his college career at the University of Florida.

Not having Reed has had an impact on Washington’s passing game. Reed, who had become a trustworthy target for Robert Griffin III, would have helped quarterback Kirk Cousins, who is making his first start of the season Sunday.’

Starting in Reed’s place could be Fred Davis, who was once a starting tight end for the team. It will be interesting to see how Washington can play in its first game this season without RG3 playing.

How do you think the Redskins will fair without RG3 and Reed in the lineup? Will back up QB Kirk Cousins lead the team to a victory, or just another disappointing defeat? Leave a comment below.
