Reed, 25, has had an injury-plagued career and has yet to play more than 11 games in an NFL season. When healthy, he's been a solid weapon for Washington, notching 95 receptions for 964 yards and three touchdowns in 20 games between the 2013-14 seasons. He suffered two concussions during the 2013 season, and a bad hamstring cost him five games last year.

Reed gives Washington an athletic option at tight end who can create mismatches against linebackers with his speed and against safeties with his size. He's forged a solid rapport with quarterback Kirk Cousins, though his inability to stay on the field continues to be a concern.

He's certainly far more dynamic than Derek Carrier, who caught four passes for 39 yards in the team's loss to the New York Jets.

It's been a rough season for Washington's passing game, with DeSean Jackson injuring his hamstring early in the season and missing time. Reed's return will give Washington a vital weapon in the passing game as Jackson continues to recover.
