Jordan Reed has Grade 3 AC joint separation, status going forward unclear
The Washington Redskins may be without tight end Jordan Reed for a bit of time.
Coach Jay Gruden revealed on ESPN980 on Friday that Reed’s MRI revealed a Grade 3 AC joint separation in his left shoulder, a rather significant injury, via Liz Clarke of the Washington Post. Reed has his left arm in a sling, and according to Gruden, they’re taking the injury “day by day.”
Washington’s next game is on Dec. 4 against Arizona, and Washington is hopeful that they will have Reed available for it. Gruden emphasized, however, that it was too soon to tell whether Reed would be able to sufficiently recover in time.
Reed managed to play through Thursday’s game after suffering the injury, and he managed 10 catches, too. That has to encourage Gruden and the team, but it sounds like an issue of pain management and movement at this point.
