Following Friday’s practice, Jordan Reed expressed his confidence in his ability to be out there on Monday night.  Per John Keim of ESPN, Reed was quoted stating, “It feels good being back out there running around and just getting use to the injury.  I’ll get out there this week.”

 

Coming from the man himself, the vote of confidence in his availability is definitely a great sign, his involvement in the game plan is still yet to be seen.  With Vernon Davis turning in an excellent showing in his absence week 3, the coaches could feel more comfortable with easing their star tight end back into action.

 

There are four notable names added to the injury report after practice on Friday.  Kirk Cousin’s absence is not injury related as his wife is currently in labor.

 

New names to the report include D.J Swearinger (Hamstring), Jonathan Allen(shoulder), and Jamison Crowder(Hamstrings).

 

There’s nothing to suggest that these injuries are anything more than “tweaks” as they were all able to take part in some drills, none being forced to exit.

 

Rob Kelley was again limited today, but according to this update by JP Finlay, he will be active Monday night vs. Chiefs:

Most notably, They saw Jordan Reed (Ribs/Sternum), Rob Kelley(Ribs), Mason Foster (shoulder), and Samaje Perine (hand) all on the field today to some extent

Reed sat out last weeks contest vs. the Raiders after sitting out one practice, and logging a few as a limited participant before being deemed unhealthy enough to play. Today, he’s back practicing some which is an encouraging sign.  With Vernon Davis playing red hot, we feel more comfortable letting Reed take his time to get healthy.

 

Running backs Rob Kelley and Samaje Perine were back doing running back drills today after both being banged up vs. the Raiders.  While their statuses are not crystal clear, with their return, along with Chris Thompson, the Redskins can keep trying to pound the ball as they did last week.

Throw in Mason Foster rejoining the pass-rush that just seems to get better and better each week, the teams health outlook leading up to their game with the chiefs is looking better barring any injuries at practice.
