Redskins tight end Jordan Reed has procedure, out until training camp

ARLINGTON, Va. -- Washington Redskins tight end Jordan Reed underwent a "little procedure" on his knee and will miss the rest of the spring workouts. It’s yet another injury issue for Reed, who has battled a few of them in his first two seasons.

Reed had his knee examined last week, the first of the organized team activity sessions.

"He’ll be fine," coach Jay Gruden said, speaking at Army Navy Country Club before the Washington Redskins Charity Golf Classic, where they granted a wish for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. "He’s going to take this time to get his knee stronger. He’s having a little issue. Nothing serious."

Gruden said he expected Reed to be ready for the start of training camp in late July.

Injuries have slowed Reed in his first two seasons. He missed seven games as a rookie and five last season. The tight end is a valuable weapon when healthy and part of the game plan -- he has a combined 95 receptions his first two seasons. The Redskins also have Niles Paul and Logan Paulsen at tight end.

Reed joined linebacker Ryan Kerrigan on the sidelines. Kerrigan had arthroscopic surgery last month -- he said via text that he needed to have bone spurs removed. He has not yet ruled out the June 16-18 minicamp.
