Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion) will be held out for the final three regular season games, according to multiple sources. The team reportedly doesn't want to risk further serious injury to Reed with the team eliminated from playoff contention. Reed has yet to practice this week.
FANTASY TIP: Logan Paulsen will be the primary tight end at Kirk Cousins' disposal now. Young quarterbacks typically rely heavily on their tight ends, meaning Paulsen could have intrigue as a sleeper TE in the final couple of weeks.

Baltimore Orioles 3B Manny Machado (knee) is progressing nicely in his rehab from left knee surgery, and he hopes to resume running in the next few weeks with the goal of being ready for the start of the 2014 season. He's mainly been doing pool work and stabilization exercise and is walking without any problems. "Pretty much, it's been going great," said Machado, who had physician Dr. Neal ElAttrache repair a torn medial patellofemoral ligament in a 75-minute procedure in Los Angeles on Oct. 14. "Every session I get stronger and better, and that's what we are looking for right now." Machado has also been doing upper-body workouts in the weight room to stay in shape.
