Washington Redskins rookie tight end Jordan Reed is expected to sit out the game due to a concussion, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Saturday, per a source informed of Reed's condition.

The news was first reported by ESPN.

Reed hasn't practiced since injuring his head in Sunday's 24-16 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

Reed has 45 catches for 499 yards on the season -- both rank second for the Redskins -- to go along with three touchdowns.

Expect tight end Fred Davis to return to the lineup after being inactive the past five games.

Reed has provided some big plays, and his chemistry with RGIII continues to grow. This will be the second game that Reed has missed this season.

The rookie has the type of athleticism and pass-catching skills offensive coordinators covet in tight ends. The third-round draft pick's on-field play was compared to Aaron Hernandez by ESPN's Ron Jaworski earlier this season.

It's another big loss for a Redskins team trying desperately to resurrect its season.
