Coach Bill O'Brien said Keke Coutee (hamstring, questionable) will be a game-time decision Week 11 against the Redskins. BOB said Coutee "has a chance" to be out there Sunday. For now, we'd estimate Coutee has a better than even shot to return, sliding in between DeAndre Hopkins and Demaryius Thomas. Coutee is a WR4/5 play.
Jordan Reed admitted he's still feeling the effects of offseason surgery on both of his big toes. "I feel like I’m starting to come over the curve," Reed said. "[But] I’m still dealing with the pain." Reed has managed to stay healthy through 10 weeks, not missing a game, but that doesn't mean he feels 100 percent. Reed is seeing a healthy 6.5 targets per game, up from last year, but those targets are of lower quality with Alex Smith compared to Kirk Cousins. Reed has yet to top 65 yards in a game and hasn't scored since Week 1. Smith is more to blame than Reed.
