Pittsburgh Steelers — Placed starting right tackle Marcus Gilbert on injured reserve with a knee injury. Gilbert hasn’t played since sustaining the injury against Cincinnati in October.
Washington Redskins — Tight end Jordan Reed could be done for the season because of a strained toe muscle.
Redskins coach Jay Gruden thinks Reed was hurt on Mark Sanchez’s high throw on his first pass of a 40-16 loss to the New York Giants on Sunday.
Gruden said “there is a level of concern” with Reed, who leads the team with 54 catches and 558 receiving yards.
Gruden added that the Redskins will have to wait to see “if it’s one week, two weeks or the rest of the year.”
Reed has played in all 13 games so far this season, his sixth in the NFL. He’s never appeared in all 16 games of a season; his career high is 14 in 2015.
Rule 5 Draft
|Major League Phase|
1. Orioles: SS Richie Martin (Athletics)
Note: This draft allows clubs without a full 40-man roster to select certain non-40-man roster players from other clubs. Clubs draft in reverse order of the standings from the previous season. Players who signed with their current club at age 18 or younger and have played professionally for at least five years are eligible to be selected, as are those who signed at 19 or older and have at least four years of professional experience.
Not every club will make a selection, but those that do pick a player must pay $100,000 to the club from which said player was selected. Rule 5 Draft picks are assigned directly to the drafting club’s 25-man roster and must be placed on outright waivers in order to be removed from the 25-man roster in the subsequent season.
