Reed Visits Specialist To Check Toe; No Timetable For His Return
Following up on the ongoing story. ... Jordan Reed hasn't practiced yet, and he isn't even on site for training camp today. Indeed, head coach Jay Gruden announced that Reed had traveled to Charlotte to see a specialist about his big toe injury.

Reed remains on the physically unable to perform list, and leaving town to get a second opinion makes it worth wondering when he'll return to practice.

The team has remained optimistic the injury wasn't going to be a long-term one.

When healthy, Reed is among the game's best but last season he played just 12 games. When he missed two midseason games with a concussion the Redskins' offense stayed in form thanks to Vernon Davis, who had 44 catches for 583 yards and two touchdowns.

The positive here?

Fantasy owners looking for an elite-level producer at the position might get a bargain with Reed as this latest injury news scares others away.

It will take some nerve to draft and rely on Reed, but the upside is obvious. So Reed's health is clearly something worth watching. The addition of Terrelle Pryor could also give them another dangerous red zone option -- also something worth watching.

And we'll be monitoring all of it very carefully in coming weeks.
