Report: Redskins TE Jordan Reed unlikely to play vs Cardinals

Reed suffered a Grade 3 AC separation last week

NFL: Washington Redskins at Dallas Cowboys Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Jordan Reed toughed it out on Thanksgiving Day following a shoulder injury that would have kept most people off the field. Reed caught 2 TD passes vs the Dallas Cowboys after suffering a Grade 3 AC separation. The tight end was in serious pain following the game, and needed help from teammate Vernon Davis to even get his shirt off.

Adam Schefter is reporting that the injury will keep Reed out of Sunday’s road game against the Arizona Cardinals. Reed has been at practice this week, but has had his left arm taped up and down at his side. He has been catching passes one-handed, but is still in pain. If Reed can’t go this week, he will have another week to heal up for a critical road game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Vernon Davis has been having a very steady year with the Redskins and would get the start if Reed sits. Derek Carrier will also be active, and could see more action in the desert.
