WASHINGTON (CBSDC) – Redskins’ tight end Jordan Reed will miss Monday’s game against the 49ers, ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting.
Reed, who has been suffering from concussion symptoms all week, did not practice again Friday.
Head coach Mike Shanahan said Friday Reed had not yet passed the league-administered concussion test, making him unlikely for the next game.
Reed has 45 catches for 499 yards as a rookie, which ranks second in both categories on the Redskins.
This could open the door for Fred Davis to prove his value to the team. Davis has been inactive for six of the Skins’ ten games this season, including each of the last five games.
This is an opportunity we know Davis would welcome, as he intimated in an interview with Chad Dukes and Grant Paulsen a few weeks back.
“I feel useless right now,” Davis told 106.7 The Fan on Nov. 6. “But I know when the time comes, I’m going to have to make a statement.”
“If I was able to speak with my play, trust me, there would be no questions,” Davis said later in the interview.
It looks like he may finally get the chance to answer at least some of those questions.
