“Not at all,” Reed said, according to ESPN’s John Keim, when asked if he was worried about the opener. “I’ll be back out there soon.”
Reed will visit a specialist regarding his injury, and the Redskins said there was no timetable for his return.
While head coach Jay Gruden shared Reed’s positivity, he opted against making any guarantees.
“From every indication I’ve received from the doctors and trainers and from Jordan, I feel he’ll be ready for the season,” Gruden said. “But you never know, so we’ll still have to wait and see. Things are odd from time to time, but I have total faith that he’ll be ready.”
With the Redskins losing wideouts DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon in free agency, the oft-injured tight end is Washington’s most established receiving threat, and any missed time could significantly hinder the team’s offense.
