Jordan Reed left Thursday’s preseason game against the Atlanta Falcons in a sadly all-too-familiar situation for the Washington Redskins tight end.

The team announced that Reed is being evaluated for a concussion following a violent helmet-to-helmet hit from Falcons safety Keanu Neal after catching a pass from Case Keenum.

The hit knocked Reed’s helmet off and resulted in a penalty for Neal for lowering his helmet.

Reed has been one of the game’s top tight ends when healthy, but has lost 31 games over the course of his six-year career due to injury, suffering multiple concussions along the way.

With his head injuries adding up, another concussion would be cause for significant concern.
