Updated: December 19, 2013

Ashburn, VA ( – The Washington Redskins placed rookie tight
end Jordan Reed on season-ending injured reserve due to lingering effects from
a concussion.

“He did see a [concussion] specialist in Pittsburgh today. They recommended
that he stay away, or at least not practice, for the next three weeks,” said
Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan.

The 23-year-old has not played since he sustained a concussion on Nov. 17
against Philadelphia.

Reed, a third-round draft pick from Florida, leads all rookie tight ends in
the NFL with 45 receptions for 499 yards and three touchdowns despite missing
four games.
