Currently dealing with concussions, Redskins tight end Jordan Reed and safety/linebacker Su'a Cravens have been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Eagles.
This week's injury report is brought to you by Inova, the Official Health System of the Washington Redskins.
The Washington Redskins will head into their first matchup with the Philadelphia Eagles this season without rookie wide receiver Josh Doctson, who has been ruled out of the game as he continues to deal with an Achilles injury.

Additionally, tight end Jordan Reed (concussion)and safety/linebacker Su'a Cravens (concussion) were downgraded to out for the game on Saturday afternoon.
Cornerbacks Bashaud Breeland (ankle) and Dashaun Phillips (hamstring) will be questionable for Sunday's showdown at FedExField.
Reed began feeling some concussion-like symptoms when he came to the Invoa Sports Performance Center on Tuesday.
Taking a "cautious approach," the Redskins had Reed evaluated before it was confirmed that he had suffered a concussion.
Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said that while Reed "took a couple shots" in Washington's Week 5 victory over the Baltimore Ravens, there weren't any that were alarming enough to remove him from the game.
But the team is in constant checking on the players' health.
"We're always monitoring them, too – the assistant coaches, position coaches are making sure they're OK," Gruden said. "The trainers are all over the place asking if they're OK. Sometimes they don't get symptoms until a day or two later – with the case of Jordan. These things are weird how they hit sometimes. They're not always plain to see to the human eye. We have to just take the symptoms for what they are, get them treated, and go from there."
With Reed – the team's leader in receptions and receiving yards through five games – unable to play this weekend, the Redskins will look to Vernon Davis and Niles Paul to produce at the tight end position.
Davis' approach to Sunday's division battle will remain unchanged, even though he'll be asked to play an increased number of reps.
"You just go out and do the same thing," Davis said. "Pretty much the same thing I've been doing – working hard, doing what I can do to help this team. Whatever they ask, I'm there. Preparation-wise, it's the same thing. You just come in, you work hard and you handle your responsibilities."
Cravens, meanwhile, returned to the practice field this week after missing last Sunday's game with a concussion suffered in Week 4. He participated in individual drills all three days of practice.
The 2016 second-round pick out of USC has collected 14 tackles on the season while being used as a situation player at inside linebacker.
Breeland is "very confident" he'll be able to play this weekend after missing the last two games.
"I feel like I'm ahead of schedule," Breeland said this week. "I felt good being back out there, planting and what not. But the injury felt pretty good. I feel like I'm about 90 percent."
