Redskins Could Be Thin At Tight End Against Raiders

by Chuck Carroll

ASHBURN, Va. (CBSDC) — The Washington Redskins may be thin at tight end this weekend as they search for their first win of the season against the Oakland Raiders.

Rookie Jordan Reed sat out Wednesday’s practice with a thigh contusion suffered in Sunday’s loss to the Detroit Lions. A timetable for his return is unclear, but Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said the rookie is receiving treatment three times a day.

“That’s a good sign,” said Shanahan. “He’s improved a lot in the last 24 hours and hopefully he can keep that progress going.”

Fred Davis continues to nurse a sprained ankle incurred on the final play of last Friday’s practice. He was limited Wednesday.

Davis tested the ankle before Sunday’s game, but was unable to go.

Shanahan is hopeful Davis will be able to do a little more in Thursday’s practice.

In other injury news, kicker Kai Forbath (groin) and linebacker Brandon Jenkins (ankle) also sat out practice Wednesday.
