Redskins' Jordan Reed: I'm going to play, '100 percent'

Tight end Jordan Reed is officially questionable to play versus the St. Louis Rams on Sunday with a quad injury.

To hear Reed tell it, there is no question about the matter.

"Yeah, I'm going to play," he said, via the Washington Post. "One hundred percent."

Reed missed most of the preseason with a hamstring injury. The talented tight end missed 13 games his first two NFL seasons.

The third-year pro caught seven passes for 63 yards and a touchdown in Week 1. He was Kirk Cousins' go-to target and should continue to see a plethora of passes thrown his way with DeSean Jackson on the shelf.

Facing a brutalizing Rams pass rush on Sunday, Cousins will look to get the ball out of his hands quickly, which means Reed, as the quarterback's security blanket, should see his stats will pop off the page again.

Reed's talent has never been in question, his health seemingly always is. This week at least, the tight end isn't worried about the injury part.
