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

Brigance, now the Ravens senior adviser to player engagement, and further the mission of his foundation, which equips, encourages and empowers people living with ALS, commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.
