Injured Redskins TE Jordan Reed to miss game at Cardinals
ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — Washington Redskins tight end Jordan Reed will miss Sunday’s game at the Arizona Cardinals with a sprained left shoulder.
Redskins coach Jay Gruden announced Friday that Reed would sit out. It’ll be the third game missed this season by Reed, who leads the Redskins with 59 catches. He has 630 yards receiving and five TDs.
Reed hurt his shoulder in Washington’s Thanksgiving Day loss at Dallas, then was sidelined for practice all week.
Gruden said he hopes that with an extra week of treatment, Reed would be available to play at NFC East rival Philadelphia on Dec. 11.
Also out for Washington (6-4-1) against Arizona (4-6-1) is defensive end Anthony Lanier (lower leg).
Starting offensive linemen Brandon Scherff and Ty Nsekhe, cornerback Bashaud Breeland, defensive lineman Ricky Jean Francois, running back Chris Thompson and long snapper Nick Sundberg were all listed as questionable for Washington.
