Washington Redskins tight end Jordan Reed left the Thanksgiving Day game against the Dallas Cowboys at AT&T Stadium. He took a big hit after being in mid-air in the first quarter.
He suffered a left shoulder injury. The 26-year-old was initially questionable to return, but was able to return and play through the injury.
He had 10 receptions for 95 yards and two touchdowns. The majority of these yards came in the middle of the field in the second half.
Head coach Jay Gruden said that Reed suffered an AC shoulder sprain. Gruden said Reed should be fine moving forward.
According to Sports Injury Clinic, “An AC joint separation or AC joint sprain is an injury to the ligament that holds the acromioclavicular joint together at the top of the shoulder. It is usually caused by fall onto an outstretched arm.”
There are several grades for this injury — and Gruden or the medical staff did not mention if it was a very mild sprain (grade 1) or a severe (grade 6) injury.
