Redskins tight end Jordan Reed’s status for Sunday’s game in Oakland remains in some question because of a right leg injury.
The rookie was injured late in the third quarter against the Lions when he caught a pass from Robert Griffin III, then attempted to hurdle Detroit cornerback Bill Bentley. Reed was hit on the right knee/quad by Bentley’s helmet.
He did not practice Wednesday.
“It’s always hurting,” Reed said Thursday of the injury, which is presumably a bruise. “When I bend it, that’s when it really starts hurting. It’s the front of my quad.”
Reed had played a season-high 31 snaps against the Lions before exiting with the injury.
“It’s more frustrating that I can’t go out there and help the guys and be a part of the team,” he said
Asked if he expects to suit up against the Raiders, Reed said he doesn’t know yet.
“It’s day-to-day right now,” he said. “If I feel good tomorrow, I’ll be out there tomorrow.”
Reed isn’t the only Redskins’ tight end who is ailing. Fred Davis, who missed last week’s game because of an ankle sprain, was limited in practice on Wednesday.
