The Washington Redskins announced on Thursday that they have place rookie TE Jordan Reed on season-ending injured reserve.
Reed hasn’t played since he suffered a concussion back in Week 11 and a recent report fro John Kiem of ESPN.com mentioned that he will meet with more concussion specialists on Thursday.
HC Mike Shanahan told reporters that the concussion specialist recommended Reed not practice for at least another three weeks, which further illustrates the seriousness of this situation.
Reed was a standout rookie who looks to be their long-term solution at tight end, but there is at least some questions regarding health moving forward. It will be interesting to see if the Redskins look to add some extra depth at tight end this offseason, considering that Fred Davis is likely to be playing elsewhere next year.
Reed finishes the 2013 season with 45 receptions for 499 yards and three touchdowns in nine total games.
