The #Redskins have downgraded Jordan Reed (concussion) to out for Sunday’s game.— Washington Redskins (@Redskins) September 7, 2019
And made the following roster move: Waived WR Robert Davis and signed TE J.P. Holtz to the active roster.
There was a lot of hope that Jordan Reed would be able to play tomorrow against the Eagles. He suffered a concussion after a dirty helmet-to-helmet from Falcons safety Keanu Neal. That was on August 22nd, and Reed has still not been cleared.
The Redskins will reportedly sign J.P. Holtz from the practice squad so they have 3 tight ends available for tomorrow's game. This will give Vernon Davis the start, and make Jeremy Sprinkle his backup. This is not good news for a team with a new jouneyman QB, a very questionable left side of the offensive line, a new RB, and a very inexperienced WR corps.
Tight end J.P. Holtz is indeed being promoted from the practice squad to the 53-man roster, per source. Another sign that Redskins at a minimum concerned about Jordan Reed for tomorrow. As I reported earlier, I'd be surprised if 86 goes based on what I heard overnight.— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) September 7, 2019
Ben Standig from the Athletic is reporting that the corresponding roster move will be releasing WR Robert Davis. The Comeback Kid was the feel good story of the summer after returning from a devastating broken leg/knee injury. This means the Redskins will have 5 WRs on the roster tomorrow, and all of them should be active. Standig reports the Redskins hope to bring him back after the game.
