According to Ben Standig of The Athletic, Reed cleared the protocol on Wednesday, and John Keim of ESPN reports that Reed “100 percent” wants to play football in 2020.
Reed has not played in a regular season game since December of 2018. The concussion suffered against Atlanta was his fourth reported concussion since entering the NFL. He’s had seven reported concussions if you include his college days.
The Redskins are likely to release Reed this offseason and save over $8 million in salary cap space.
