Redskins tight end Jordan Reed said his bruised right quadriceps remains sore and that he is day-to-day.

The rookie left last week’s game after taking a helmet to the leg. He didn’t practice Wednesday and didn’t expect to practice Thursday. Reed said he remains unsure of his status for the Redskins’ game on Sunday at Oakland.

“Yeah, it’s day-to-day right now, so if I feel good tomorrow, I’ll be out there tomorrow,” Reed said Thursday.

“It’s always hurting. When I bend it is when it really starts hurting,” he added, describing how his leg felt.

Reed has gotten off to a solid start as a rookie, recording 13 catches for 106 yards and a touchdown, which leads all of the Redskins’ tight ends.
