Injury Update: Redskins Expected To Be Without Jordan Reed and Rob Kelley

The Redskins may be without two of their top offensive players when they host the Raiders on Sunday Night Football.

As of now, both are considered ‘questionable’ to play, but ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting TE Jordan Reed (rib/sternum) and RB Rob Kelley (rib) are both unlikely to play.

Reed is one of the best pass-catching tight ends in the league, while Kelley is the Redskins primary running back and is averaging 4.9 yards-per-carry through two games.

The absence of Kelley would mean the Raiders should see more of rookie Samaje Perine and Chris Thompson, who has established himself as one of the best third-down running backs in the league.

Reed, who Schefter says will be a game-time decision, will be replaced by former 49ers TE Vernon Davis if he is unable to play.

Officially, the status of both players won’t be announced until 90 minutes before kickoff.
