If there was concern about how quickly Jordan Reed would get up to speed after missing the Redskins’ offseason program and part of training camp those worries should be put to rest now.

Reed is ready to contribute and the playmaking tight end proved it Monday night against the Eagles. Reed played 25 snaps on offense and hauled in five passes (on six targets) for 38 yards.

“I was happy with how Jordan played” offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan said “I thought he did a real good job. Every ball we threw to him he separated caught the ball got up the field fast.”

Added head coach Mike Shanahan: "I though Jordan for his first game really took advantage of his opportunities when he was in there both in the running game and the passing game."

Indeed he did. Reed was one of Robert Griffin III’s most trusted targets in the third and fourth quarters are the Redskins mounted a furious comeback bid.

On Washington's second drive of the third in fact Reed twice got open and hauled in drive-extending passes as Griffin was flushed from the pocket.
