Fantasy Impact: HC Jay Gruden has made it clear that Reed won't play on Sunday without practicing by Friday. Keep an eye on the practice reports Thursday and Friday to before putting Reed in your lineup this weekend. The Redskins may not feel a pressing need to rush him back after Niles Paul had an excellent game in Week 2 against the Jaguars.

Redskins HC Jay Gruden said on Monday that Reed's status for the Week 3 matchup in Philadelphia is uncertain. Gruden said that if Reed doesn't practice by Friday, or he won't play against the Eagles. (Source: Mike Jones via Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Keep an eye on Reed's status throughout the week. The Redskins may be content to stick with Niles Paul after his 99-yard and a TD performance in Week 2 and simply give Reed another week or two to heal.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed, who has been dealing with a strained hamstring, is doubtful for Week 2 against Jacksonville. (Source: Jason Reid via Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: When healthy, Reed is a difference maker. However, in his brief pro career he has had trouble staying on the field. Monitor his status on Sunday morning, but it appears that Reed will be inactive for the team's home opener.

Washington tight end Jordan Reed had an MRI done on his "mild" hamstring strain, but the team is preparing to be without him for "significant time". Head coach Jay Gruden commented on how long Reed could be out for, "We'll see how it goes with the trainer. It'll probably be a week, or two, or three. We'll see." (Source: Washington Post)

Fantasy Impact: Who knows how long Reed will be out for? However, almost all can agree that Reed is almost a lock to miss Week Two. TE Niles Paul was the main beneficiary of Reed's absence on Sunday and that should remain going into Week Two. Either way, don't look at Paul as anything more than a desperation TE2 against the Jags.

Redskins tight end Jordan Reed injured his hamstring in Houston on Sunday. He doesn't know the severity of the injury, but reportedly wasn't moving well after the game. Reed only had one catch for four yards. He'll get an MRI on Monday. (Source: Tarik El-Bashir via Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Uh oh. We all knew about Reed's injury history going into the season, so hopefully you drafted a backup TE if you got him. Hamstring injuries tend to linger, so even though we don't know how bad it is, this could very well be the first of many hamstring issues for him.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed has been fighting through a thumb injury and was listed as questionable on the team's Week 1 injury report. Reed fully participated in Friday's practice and is expected to play. (Source: CSN Washington)

Fantasy Impact: Monitor the inactive report on Sunday and start Reed if he is active. The Redskins will be relying on the run game and underneath routes to manage the Houston pass rush. If he plays, Reed could be primed for a big outing.

Fantasy Impact: Reed should play this week, so don't hesitate to start him as a TE1 this week unless you have a better option available.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed had an unimpressive outing against the Ravens on Saturday night. He caught one pass for seven yards and had a big play nullified by a penalty.

Fantasy Impact: Consider this performance an aberration. Reed is the real deal as a pass catching TE and should be a starter in 12-team leagues that use TEs.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed only played on about three drives against Cleveland but did catch two passes for 20 yards including a first down conversion.

Fantasy Impact: Reed has continued to look good all summer and there is no reason to believe he won't have a breakout campaign in 2014. He is athletic and excels at finding soft spots in coverage. Comcast SportsNet beat reporter Rich Tandler believes Reed could lead the team in TD receptions this year.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed finally got back to practicing on Thursday after a stomach virus took him out of commission since Saturday. He had watched practice on Tuesday, but actually worked with the team on Thursday and continued practicing long after practice finished. (Source: Washington Post)

Fantasy Impact: The athletic, receiving tight end is back in action and is poised to post TE1 numbers this season as the third receiving option on his team, behind Pierre Garcon and Desean Jackson. The only problem is his injury frequency. However, if he can stay healthy, an 800 yard, 7 TD season is very probable, to say the least.

Fantasy Impact: There are big expectations for Reed this season, but he is still only a second-year player learning a new offense. Reed needs all the practice reps and game snaps he can get if he is to deliver for fantasy owners in 2014.

During the Patriots-Redskins joint practice sessions, reporter Mike Reiss and Patriots coaches considered Reed to be one of the best offensive players on the field. His big highlight was a great catch on an out route right in between CB Darrelle Revis and S Devin McCourty. (Source: ESPN Boston)

Fantasy Impact: The only thing keeping Reed from delivering TE1 value this year is his penchant for missing games due to injuries, especially concussions. His concussion history is reminiscent of Austin Collie's and one has to wonder how many more concussions he will have to suffer before his health takes precedence over his career. For now, keep him penciled in as a solid TE1.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed missed Saturday's practice due to illness. He should be ready in plenty of time for the team's August 18th matchup against the Browns at FedEx Field. (Source: John Keim via Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Breathe a sigh of relief, fantasy owners. The very promising second-year TE has a history of injuries, including missing several games in 2013 with a concussion. Continue to target Reed as a mid to low-end TE1.

TE Jordan Reed has not been spotted at practice today. No information about his omission has been released as of 3:24 PM on Saturday, August 9. (Source: Mike Jones via Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Uh oh. Let's hope it's nothing severe. The athletic tight end did miss seven games last season, six of them from a concussion. Reed was also pretty injury prone in college, so much of his success on this level will depend on his health. Stay tuned!

Jordan Reed continues an impressive offseason in early camp practices, prompting fellow TE Niles Paul to say 'that's a Pro Bowl tight end right there.' (Source: Washington Post)

Fantasy Impact: Second year TE Jordan Reed has breakout potential this season as part of a talented corps of pass catchers that also includes Pierre Garcon, DeSean Jackon and Andre Roberts. Keep an eye on the Redskins offensive line play. If the starters look good, and Reed stays healthy, he has the potential to exceed 1,000 yards and seven TDs.

The Washington Redskins’ 17-6 opening day loss at the hands of the Houston Texans didn’t leave much for fans to be optimistic about offensively, as RGIII and co. looked completely hopeless and hapless. Now, things could be getting a bit more difficult. Tight end Jordan Reed, who emerged last season as one of Griffin’s favorite targets, left the game early with a hamstring injury....

Washington tight end Jordan Reed left yesterday's game with a hamstring injury and Jay Gruden called it "a concern" yesterday saying that he "could miss significant time," according to the Washington Post. Today Gruden called it a "mild hamstring sprain," but he added that "it 'could be some time ...' before he returns." It appears safe to assume that he will miss this week's matchup against th...
