Jordan Reed dealing with concussion, MCL sprain

Jordan Reed started the season hot, but, as has been the case throughout his career, the Washington Redskins' tight end is again hurt.

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.

Through four games in 2015, Reed compiled 24 receptions for 278 yards and a touchdown, averaging a career-high 11.6 yards per catch. The pass-catching tight end was a dynamic security blanket for quarterback Kirk Cousins in the Redskins' quick pass attack.
