When the Washington Redskins take the field against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, they’ll have to do so without tight end Jordan Reed.
The former star tight end missed Week 1 against the Philadelphia Eagles with a concussion he suffered during the preseason.
According to a report from NFL insider Mike Garafolo, Reed will miss this weekend’s game against the Cowboys as well.
Here’s the news from Garafolo.

Reed suffered the concussion during the preseason in an arguably dirty play. He’s been the best receiving option on the Redskins in recent years, but hasn’t been able to stay on the field.
Reed has reportedly suffered seven diagnosed concussions during his NFL career – a dangerous number for any player. He racked up 558 yards on 54 receptions for two touchdowns during the 2018 season.
2018 marked one of the healthiest seasons of his career, but the 2019 campaign has not gone well so far.
The star tight end will miss his second-straight game as the Redskins take on a division-rival.
In his absence, Vernon Davis shined for Washington. He grabbed four receptions for 59 yards and a touchdown during the team’s loss to the Eagles on Sunday.
The Redskins face off against the Cowboys on Sunday afternoon at 1:00 p.m. ET on FOX.
