ASHBURN, Va. --?Washington Redskins tight end Jordan Reed reached this same point a week ago as a limited participant in practice. But he then missed two more days when his concussion symptoms returned.Reed is confident this time is different.Im feeling 100 percent, Reed said. I feel symptom-free.I feel back to normal.That would be good news for the Redskins as they prepare to play the Cincinnati Bengals in London on Sunday. Reed is among a handful of key players with an injury question. Corner Josh Norman was limited in practice because of his concussion. Like Reed, he must be cleared by an independent doctor before the Redskins depart Thursday night.Every day is different for these guys with concussions, Redskins coach Jay Gruden said. The goal is to work them a little more every day, and if they handle it, then theres a chance hes cleared. If symptoms return, theres a chance he wont.Left tackle Trent Williams was limited with a hyperextended knee. Though he still walked with a limp, Williams remained confident he would play Sunday.Running back Matt Jones was a new addition to the list of injured players. The Redskins starting back felt pain in his knee when he tried to cut. Gruden said he was OK when running straight ahead. If Jones cant play, Gruden said rookie?Robert Kelley?would be the starter but that third-down back Chris Thompson would remain a key part of the game plan.Reed has missed the past two games after suffering his fifth diagnosed concussion; he has admitted hiding others in thhe past.ddddddddddddThe Redskins have still moved the ball in his absence, with 910 yards combined in his two missed games. But Reed is a dangerous receiving threat for quarterback Kirk Cousins and still leads Washington with 33 catches, despite missing the two games. Vernon Davis has helped with eight catches for 129 yards and a touchdown in Reeds absence.Reed missed two games with a concussion last season and the final four games of 2013, his rookie season, with another one. In 2013, he also said he suffered a concussion earlier in the year but did not tell the coaches.But because he has dealt with this injury in the past, Reed knew what to expect now. When he didnt feel right last week, he told the doctors, and they shut him down.When Ive had concussions in the past, sometimes it takes a little longer, Reed said. I was just staying patient and staying prayed up and getting ready for [symptoms] to go away.As for Williams, he could barely walk after Sundays loss in Detroit, needing the wall to steady his gait. But he joined his offensive line teammates for individual work on Wednesday, still limping a little. An MRI on Monday revealed no structural damage to his left knee.A sprain, I can get through that, Williams said. Bruises, I can get through that. As long as the doctor tells me theres nothing structurally wrong, Ill do whatever I have to do to get on the field.
