ASHBURN, Va. (AP) - Washington Redskins tight end Jordan Reed will miss the rest of the season because of lingering effects from a concussion.
Coach Mike Shanahan said Thursday that Reed traveled to Pittsburgh to see a specialist, who recommended that the rookie not practice for the next three weeks.
Reed has missed four games since he was hurt Nov. 17 against Philadelphia. Despite the injury, he remains second on the team in both receptions with 45 and yards receiving with 499.
Shanahan says Reed will be placed on injured reserve. The coach did not announce a corresponding roster move.
