Reed’s status is still up in the air for Week 12 against the 49ers

Redskins tight end Jordan Reed is questionable for Week 12 as he needs to pass concussion protocol by Monday night. Washington is already without wide receiver Leonard Hankerson and losing Reed would leave RG3 with very few reliable targets against San Francisco.

Reed sustained the injury in Sunday night’s loss to the Eagles, but it wasn’t clear how it happened. The rookie tight end made his one catch on his only target of the game, but this is not when he went down. The injury must have occurred while blocking, leaving the severity of his concussion a mystery.

Coach Mike Shanahan didn’t help clarify the issue either when he only confirmed that protocol needs to be passed, adding no new information.

Reed has been the one main positive for the Redskins organization, playing very well and posting impressive numbers. The rookie has 45 receptions, 499 yards and 3 touchdowns. Reed has become one of Robert Griffin’s favorite targets as of late, and the team would suffer without his presence.

If Reed cannot go, Griffin’s numbers would be expected to drop significantly.

If he is able to play Monday night, Reed can be used as a middle of the pack TE1 against San Francisco. If unable to go, then Logan Paulsen would most likely fill the spot, but would not be a viable fantasy option.
