From the article...

"Rookie tight end Jordan Reed will sit out the remainder of the season because of the concussion that he suffered last month, Washington Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan said Thursday.

According to Shanahan, Reed was examined by a specialist who recommended that Reed not practice for at least three more weeks. Reed will be placed on the injured reserve list, Shanahan said."

This kid is making me nervous. He has the ability, but damn if he doesn't get injured a lot. Hope he can get everything figured out and be a contributor for at least 13 games next year.

Also, Lance Lewis signed with the Cowboys. I thought the Redskins would sign him back once Reed went on IR. But this means they still have a roster move to make

Sadly Reed has had prior concussions. I hope his talent and career isn't being cut short.

Hate to say it but I don't think we can really count on reed for a future starter, IMO we should look at TEs in FA or draft especially if Fred walks

Yeah with his injury history I wouldn't put all my eggs in his basket. Since Fred D. is probably gone after this year we should look into acquiring another solid young backup. I hope the kid is okay though, even though I'd love to have him as a starter risking his future health isn't worth it. Now he can get take all the time he needs to get healthy.

What bothers me most about this is that because we are not a winning team there wasn't even a penalty give to Philly on the play that took him out. The officials turned a blind eye to the helmet to helmet collision in that game. It's a joke for the NFL to claim they are protecting players by fining players after the fact. Penalty need to be accessed during games.

Have I just not been paying attention or is it extremely rare for a concussion to take a player out of action for more than a week or two? It seems odd that Reed missed so much time for typically a fairly simple recovery for a concussion.

If Shanny is gone, I think maybe Fred Davis stays.

I'm kind of thinking maybe the 'skins put Reed on IR simply because they want to save him for next season. Might as well. I remember back in the good ol' days, Joe Gibbs used to store guys on IR that were healthy enough to play.

If I'm correct his injury was after the catch and at that point he becomes a runner and the H To H rule does not apply.

WTF?

(SIGH) :doh:

I totally missed that he was let go. Thought he was still on the team filling Hankersons spot. I really liked this kid and thought maybe... just maybe this kid as big as he was might develop into something special.

....and now he's with Dallas. Lewis was my pick in the off season to make the team. Now he's a cowgirl. :(

SBXVII 12-20-2013 12:20 PM

Re: Jordan Reed on IR
 
So what LB was brought in to fill the empty spot or did the team have someone on the PS that I missed also?

I'm in a conundrum over the hits. I for one would love for the players to just play and hit. They are making tons of money because of the risk. You take away the risk then they should lower the pay for the players.

However I'm also of the mind that if a player gets knocked out of a game the person who it him should be taken out of the game as well. and... if said player (Reed) has to sit out a few games due to injury then the player that caused it should be forced to sit out as well. Until the injured player can come back. Maybe if the league punished with playing time AND monetary then tackling might change. I also think rules should apply to both sides of the ball though like a face mask, defenders can't grab a face mask but the runner or WR can stiff arm the face mask of the defender. Both should be illegal. If a defender is not allowed to use the crown of his helmet to tackle then the runner or WR should not be allowed to lower his helmet and use his crown to get more yards. or just give them leather helmets again so stop the hard hits. lol.
