You have to think that he's contemplated retirement at some point, don't you?

I don't think so. He's admitted that when he thinks he's been concussed he tries to hide it from the team to keep playing.  He'll probably keep trying to play until a terrible injury or until he's hurt so much nobody will hire him.

If the Redskins were smart they'd work out an injury settlement with  him coupled with a contract to join the coaching staff. Then he wouldn't be out on the street and he wouldn't be playing. But Dan Snyder owns the team so that ain't happening.

That just leaves me shaking my head. Hard to believe.

Jordan Reed (concussion) was ruled out for Week 3 against the Bears.

Reed is still in the concussion protocol and remains week to week given his unfortunate history of concussions. Low-end streamer Vernon Davis will be Case Keenum's starting tight end against Chicago on Monday Night Football.

I bet the Redskins knew that they were going to hold Reed out for an extended period because of his concussion history.  But they've acted like he could play each week to cause their opponents to gameplan for him.  Dastardly soma#####es.

NBC Sports' JP Finlay reports Jordan Reed (concussion) could be out "weeks."

Reed is understandably taking his time with a return from his preseason concussion. The tight end has been a limited participant in some practice drills, but he's still not cleared for contact. At some point, the Redskins will have to debate placing him on injured reserve, though that hasn't been reported quite yet. Vernon Davis will continue to start in his absence.

At some point you need to quit wasting the roster spot, don't you? I think I'd rather have a less skilled player for 16 games than a talented one for maybe six a season. Just seems like the offense can never really gel if the positional players are on a rotisserie.

Another one of those players you hate to roster but can't drop.

I see the opposite: a player you can never count on to play and shouldn't be rostered.

He was just dropped in one of my dynasty leagues.  I left him on the WW as I drove by.

I was referring to dynasty leagues, but I just posted he was dropped and I didn't pick him up, so that sort of nullifies my statement.

Gruden doesnt sound like he believes Jordan Reed is considering retiring

At this stage does it matter what Jordan Reed is considering?  If you’re the Redskins, don’t you sit the guy down and say enough is enough?  He can’t go a game without getting his brain scrambled or suffering an injury of some sort.  But the brain stuff is alarming.

The Redskins expect Jordan Reed (concussion) to return this season.

"I’m not worried about that, no," was coach Jay Gruden's response when asked if Reed's career was in doubt. "He has seen specialists, and we are just trying to get to the bottom of it and figuring out the best way to make him more comfortable, get him back in the lineup." Despite Gruden's positivity, Reed remains without a timetable for a return.

Jordan Reed (concussion) ruled out for Week 5.

Coach Jay Gruden said Reed will be back at some point this season, but the return doesn't seem particularly imminent. Vernon Davis (concussion) is also sidelined. This means Jeremy Sprinkle could play a near every-down role for the Colt McCoy-led Redskins offense. Opportunity rules all in fantasy football, but the passing game couldn't ask for a worse matchup than against the Patriots. Sprinkle remains nothing more than a thin streamer option.

Did not practice today. 

Vernon Davis did but was limited.

I think the team is going to go with Davis this weekend.

Redskins placed TE Jordan Reed (concussion) on injured reserve.

Reed missed the first five weeks in the concussion protocol, and he's unfortunately still experiencing concussion symptoms. Fired coach Jay Gruden said Reed would be back this year, but there's not much reason to bring him back with the Redskins in a full tank. Reed is eligible to return in Week 14. With Vernon Davis sidelined, Jeremy Sprinkle will start Sunday's game against Miami.

Finally dropped this guy in dynasty and no one picked him up. Guess I could now put him on IR but I’ve lost all interest.

He just got dropped in my dynasty. I'm thinking about adding him to my IR, simply because it's open.

That's what I did. He should retire but if he doesn't...I'm not gonna let any off-season hype like he had this year go to waste. People always fall for it.

While I should know better I definitely fell for it this year.

Such a good player when he plays. Also the lack of other targets available was just too tempting to pass up.

Not only that but an OL that looked like it was a recipe for checkdowns and short passes. And a starting QB(at the time) that imo doesn't really look downfield much. A HC(at the time) that passes quite a bit. A set of DB's that can't really cover so there was a good chance they would be throwing to catch up often.

There were plenty of opportunity markers there for both Reed and Chris Thompson imo, but as usual they just can't stay healthy. As long as you aren't playing draft-and-go I don't think it's all that big a miss. You just end up dropping them when they get hurt and going with the hot FA pickup. If someone was EXPECTING big production from either, that was obviously a mistake. But as a high-upside late rounder I didn't think the cost was too much at all.
