Recent Injury Bite

Redskins TE Jordan Reed spoke to the media on Thursday for the 1st time since we learned of his toe issue. He revealed that the toe bothered him all last year. It felt better this spring but became a problem again when he had stem-cell treatment. "That kind of flared it up a bit on me," Reed said. "Now I'm just letting it calm down before I get out there." The specialist he visited earlier this week recommended only rest. "I've just gotta take my time, let it heal and strengthen up, then get back out there," Reed added. He remains the biggest injury risk at his position.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed suggested that he fractured his foot at some point. "The cleats prior to this were more narrow and pressing on the bone that I had the fracture in," he said, discussing his new footwear. "These cleats are wider and the orthotics are softer so I don't feel it." It's possible that Reed misspoke or was misquoted, but it sure sounds like he let it slip that his foot was broken. Of course, we don't know when it happened or what the exact injury was. The Redskins have been saying Reed is dealing with a toe issue. (And he might have that, too.) The whole situation is murky. What we know is that Reed remains 1 of the biggest injury risks in football.

After Washington TE Jordan Reed visited foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson on Tuesday, HC Jay Gruden said the check revealed "nothing earth-shattering," according to The Washington Post. He added that "everything looked pretty good." That's obviously good news for a player who has yet to practice in training camp. Reed put in a mild workout on a side field during Wednesday's practice.

Redskins HC Jay Gruden revealed on Tuesday that TE Jordan Reed is visiting a specialist to check on his sprained big toe. Gruden labeled Reed "day-to-day," but we're officially worried. Sending Reed to a specialist is a sign that the team is a least a bit concerned about his status. And toe injuries have a tendency to linger anyway. Reed, of course, was already 1 of the biggest injury risks in fantasy football. Our model gives him a 79.5% chance of injury this season.

Redskins HC Jay Gruden said Thursday that the "hope" is for TE Jordan Reed to get back on the field in "about a week." He's dealing with both toe and ankle injuries. “I don’t think it’s a significant injury where anybody should worry,” Gruden said. Considering Reed's injury history, we're not just sweeping this one under the rug. He's already the most likely TE to get hurt this season.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed was placed on the PUP list to open training camp. The Washington Post's Master Tesfatsion reports that Reed is dealing with a toe injury but adds the PUP move is "precautionary." This sounds like a minor issue -- but we're talking about a guy who's missed 18 games through 4 NFL seasons. Reed is the most likely TE to miss time with injury this year, according to our algorithms.
