ASHBURN, Va. -- Washington Redskins tight end Jordan Reed still hasn’t been ruled out for the season. But he’s still suffering from the effects of a concussion that has sidelined him four straight games.

Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said Reed did not play Sunday because he had a headache -- and he still had one Monday. Reed will continue to see specialists. Shanahan has said they haven't yet shut him down for the season, though one league source said Saturday that it's a possibility.

“We’ll take a look at him each day, go through the protocol for a concussion, and hopefully one day he’ll wake up and say, ‘Hey, I feel good, I’m ready to go,'" Shanahan said.

Reed suffered two concussions while at the University of Florida, which caused him to miss practice time but not games.

Fullback Darrel Young left Sunday's game after he re-injured his hamstring. The Redskins will have a better feel for his status at practice Wednesday.

"He set himself back a little bit," Shanahan said. "I'm hoping it's not as serious as it was before."
