Reed exited Sunday's win over the Philadelphia Eagles with a concussion. Coach Jay Gruden said Monday the tight end is in concussion protocol while also dealing with a right knee MCL sprain.
Gruden conceded that the concussion is a concern for Reed, who has a long history of head trauma dating back to college. Reed missed the final six games of 2013 after suffering two concussions in a three-week span. The 25-year-old tight end has yet to play more than 11 games in a season.
