Washington Redskins tight end Jordan Reed will miss his second straight game to start the season as he deals with the lingering effects of a concussion, the team announced Friday. Defensive end Jonathan Allen also was ruled out of Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys (1-0) after sustaining a grade 1 knee sprain in Washington's 32-27 loss to Philadelphia in the season opener.

Tight end Vernon Davis will see more snaps in place of Reed, who did not attend practice on Friday after seeing increased reps throughout the week. "It just didn't work out this week as far as feeling 100 percent to play in a game," Washington coach Jay Gruden said of Reed.

The 29-year-old Reed sustained a concussion following a helmet-to-helmet hit by Atlanta safety Keanu Neal in a preseason game on Aug. 22. The hit drew a penalty and later a $28,075 fine. Reed has recorded 329 receptions for 3,371 yards and 24 touchdowns in six seasons with the Redskins, earning Pro Bowl honors in 2016. He had 54 catches for 558 yards and two scores in 13 games (eight starts) last season.

Davis, 35, had four catches for 59 yards and a touchdown in the season opener against the Eagles.
