Reed Questionable, but Plans to Play
Jordan Reed separated his shoulder in the Redskins loss to the Cowboys on thanksgiving. Without him last week the Redskins passing attack was clearly weaker. Reed is still in pain, and it has been reported all week that he was uncomfortable in practice. Despite all that he plans to play Sunday.
The Redskins are basically in a must win scenario. They are currently the 7th seed in the NFC and need to win 3 of the last 4 of maybe even all 4 games to make the playoffs. Reed should help open up the passing attack against the Eagles, but the game will most likely come down to how the defense responds after two poor performances in a row.
