The problem is, Reed just can't stay healthy. The 29-year-old has missed the Redskins' first two games of 2019 and already been ruled out for Monday's contest against the Bears, as he continues to recover from a concussion he suffered August 22 vs. Atlanta.
On Sunday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that Reed's playing career could be in jeopardy, as he has struggled to recover from his latest concussion.
Here's a timeline of Reed's concussion and injury history, dating back to his college days as a Florida Gator.
November 2010: In his freshman year at Florida, Reed suffered his first documented concussion in a 31-7 loss to Florida State. He returned for the team's bowl game vs. Penn State on Jan. 1, 2011.
October 2011: Reed suffered a concussion at some point during the 2011 season, but did not appear to miss any games due to the injury.
September 2012: The tight end suffers his third concussion in college, but did not miss any games for the Gators. Reed returned to action after the bye week.
November 2013: As a rookie, Reed suffered a concussion against the Philadelphia Eagles. He would not return at any point later in the season, landing on injured reserve. He became close to returning multiple times, but the symptoms kept returning.
September 2014: In Washington's season opener, Reed pulled his hamstring against Houston. The injury would force him to miss the next four weeks.
November 2014: Reed re-injuries his hamstring in a 27-7 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He would miss the following week with the injury.
October 2015: In a Week 4 clash with the Eagles, Reed suffered multiple injuries, including his fifth documented concussion. He left the game originally with an ankle injury, returned, then suffered the concussion. He would miss the Redskins next two games.
October 2016: In a Week 5 matchup vs. Baltimore, Reed suffered his sixth documented concussion. He initially tried to play through the injury, but entered the protocol following the game. He would miss the team's next two games.
November 2016: In a Thanksgiving clash with Dallas, Reed suffered a Grade 3 separation in his shoulder. While the tight end would finish the game (and score two touchdowns), he would miss two of the team's next four games with the injury.
October 2017: A hamstring injury Reed suffered against the Cowboys in Week 8 would eventually put Reed on IR, costing him the team's final nine games of the season.
December 2018: Reed would suffer a toe strain against the Giants in Week 14. The tight end would miss Washington's final three games of the season.
August 2019: In the team's third preseason game, Reed suffered the seventh documented concussion of his football career after being struck by Falcons' safety Keanu Neal. He has missed the Redskins first three games of the 2019 season and counting.
