Red­skins’ Reed didn’t re­port con­cus­sion in game against Ravens

Baltimore Sun - - SPORTS -

Wash­ing­ton Red­skins tight end Jor­dan Reed said he knew he had suf­fered a con­cus­sion dur­ing a game against the Ravens on Oct. 9 and didn’t tell any­one. Reed missed the Red­skins’ most re­cent game against the Philadel­phia Ea­gles. He was lim­ited in prac­tice Wed­nes­day and wore a yel­low non­con­tact jer­sey. Coach Jay Gru­den said Reed hasn’t been ruled out of Sun­day’s game at the Detroit Lions. Reed, 26, who signed a $46.75 mil­lion, five-year ex­ten­sion in the off­sea­son, suf­fered a con­cus­sion on a hit to the back of the head in the third quar­ter at M&T Bank Sta­dium and didn’t leave the field. Reed re­ported symp­toms — nau­sea, ir­ri­tabil­ity and “a pretty bad headache” — to the team Tues­day and was asked to un­dergo test­ing. “I took the con­cus­sion test and did pretty bad on it,” he said. This is the sixth doc­u­mented con­cus­sion in his pro and col­lege ca­reer. “A con­cus­sion is a con­cus­sion,” he said. “You’ve got to take it se­ri­ous ev­ery time and make sure you fix it.” FUNDRAISER: The Bri­g­ance Brigade Foun­da­tion will team up with Hard Rock Cafe Bal­ti­more to raise money for fam­i­lies bat­tling amy­otrophic lat­eral scle­ro­sis at the sec­ond an­nual Soiree with O.J. — A Rockin’ Good Time at 7 p.m. Fri­day.
