The 2013 NFL season is coming to a close, and several teams are shutting down their best players who may be dealing with injuries in hopes of preserving them for the offseason training program and organized team activities.
The Washington Redskins have announced that starting tight end Jordan Reed will be held out of the teams’ remaining two games as he deals with a concussion.
Washington Head Coach Mike Shanahan said Reed will miss the final two games after a specialist recommended Reed not practice the next three weeks. Reed last played Week 11 against the Philadelphia Eagles before suffering a concussion that has held him out since.
The rookie TE caught 45 passes for 499 yards and three touchdowns, in eight games in 2013. Backup Fred Davis will now likely start.
