The Redskins announced they will open camp without their top offensive weapon, as tight end Jordan Reed was placed on the physically unable to perform list, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports.
A team spokesman said Reed was suffering from a sprained toe. Keeping him out of practice was believed to be a precautionary move, said a person with knowledge of the situation.
Reed, who missed time late in the season with a joint separation of his left shoulder, spent the offseason training primarily in Miami but did take part in the mandatory minicamp in June. He practiced without limitation.
Reed last season earned Pro Bowl honors after recording 66 catches for 687 yards and six touchdowns. In 2015 he had 87 catches for 952 yards and 11 touchdowns.
While the regular season PUP list requires a player to miss six weeks before returning to practice, during training camp he can return to the field as soon as the medical staff clears him.
