FANTASY FOOTBALL INJURY FALLOUT: JORDAN REED THANKSGIVING HERO BUT SUFFERS GRADE 3 SHOULDER SEPARATION

It was an absolute roller coaster ride for those fantasy football owners of Washington Redskins tight end Jordan Reed on Thanksgiving.  First Reed suffers a shoulder injury in the second quarter that sent him to the locker room as reminders of how fragile and injury-prone the guy has been throughout his career came back into the forefront of our memories.  Then Reed returned and went all Tony Gonzalez on the Dallas Cowboys as he caught 10 balls and 2 touchdown passes from QB Kirk Cousins.  Alas postgame testing on Reed's shoulder showed a Grade 3 separation which means ligament damage and a complete separation out of the joint.  There are two ways to look at this of course, with the first being that playing on Thursday will allow Reed some extra time to possibly play in Week 13.  However such a serious shoulder injury is more likely to keep Reed out and so his fantasy football owners should already plan on picking up Vernon Davis off waivers.  Davis has played well as a backup to Reed this season and the Redskins love throwing the football all game long so he is about the best possible replacement you can find on the wire.  Made the play for Davis and hope this is just a one-game loss at most.  With Reed though you can never be too sure.
