Washington Redskins tight end Jordan Reed said he knew he had suffered a concussion during a game against the Ravens on Oct. 9 and didn't tell anyone.

Reed missed the Redskins' most recent game against the Philadelphia Eagles. He was limited in practice Wednesday and wore a yellow noncontact jersey. Coach Jay Gruden said Reed hasn't been ruled out of Sunday's game at the Detroit Lions.

Reed reported symptoms — nausea, irritability and "a pretty bad headache" — to the team Tuesday and was asked to undergo testing.

"I took the concussion test and did pretty bad on it," he said. This is the sixth documented concussion in his pro and college career.

"A concussion is a concussion," he said. "You've got to take it serious every time and make sure you fix it."
