Reed suffered a Grade 3 AC joint separation on his left shoulder when he was pushed to the ground by a Cowboys' defender in a play where he jumps for a pass thrown out of the back of the end zone in the second quarter of their 31-26 loss against the Dallas Cowboys.
Even after sustaining an injury in the first half, he decided to continue playing in the second half which shocked both Kirk Cousins and Jay Gruden. Reed said that he wanted to be out there for the team and they trusted him to be available in certain situations like that.

Reed also said that he's going to play in their game against the Cardinals if he's able to do it. He continued, "It's day by day right now, I'm still trying to figure that out."
For now, the most crucial factor for Reed is the strengthening of his shoulder to determine if he can go in Arizona. The tight end declared that he did not wear a sling that will support his shoulder to make himself hold his arm up and keeping his strength on his shoulder.
Reed also admitted that the injury was very painful right now when doing things like getting dressed and even sleeping. He said that it was definitely uncomfortable to reach over his head because it is still pretty painful right now.
