ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — Washington Redskins tight end Jordan Reed says he knew he had suffered a concussion during a recent game and didn’t tell anyone.
Reed missed the Redskins’ most recent game against the Philadelphia Eagles. He was limited in practice Wednesday and was wearing a yellow noncontact jersey.
Coach Jay Gruden says Reed hasn’t been ruled out of Sunday’s game at the Detroit Lions.
The 26-year-old says he’s not getting too excited about the possibility of getting back into game action. He suffered a concussion on a hit to the back of the head in the third quarter of a game at Baltimore on Oct. 9 and didn’t leave the field.
The NFL announced new protocol that will require an athletic trainer in the press box to stay in contact with on-field doctors to determine if a player has a concussion.
