Tuesday’s practice brought with it a new injury, this time to reserve offensive lineman Jah Reid. Following practice, John Harbaugh revealed that Reid was going through the NFL concussion protocol, putting his status in doubt for Saturday night’s game against the Washington Redskins. “Jah got a little head dinger,” Harbaugh said. “I don’t know the extent of it or how long he will be, but he hit his head [Monday]. So, he’s doing the concussion protocol.”
As per usual, several veteran players got the day off today.
Owen Daniels got a more official sounding description for his reason for not practicing after John Harbaugh had originally called it “old guy fatigue.”
In addition to Daniels and Reid, it was the usual suspects who missed practice Tuesday.
And Jimmy Smith sat out another day.
Some rare good news on the injury front comes from Kelechi Osemele, who is coming off of back surgery. Osemele has certainly looked healthy out on the field and has been dominant at times.
