Washington Redskins tight end Jordan Reed, who suffered a left shoulder injury last week, is unlikely to play Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals, sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter on Thursday.Reed said Monday his range of motion was only 30 percent and that he remained in pain and needed help getting dressed.He?suffered an AC joint separation in the second quarter of the Redskins 31-26 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving Day when he jumped for a pass in the end zone that he couldnt catch.Reed missed the rest of the quarter and was told at halftime that he probably wouldnt be able to return. However, he did return and finished with a game-high 10 receptions for 95 yards and two touchdowns -- with eight catches and both scores coming after the injury. He also made a diving, one-handed 33-yard reception that set up a touchdown.Redskins coach Jay Gruden said he hopes to know more about Reeds status Friday, but added that itd be remarkable if the tight end was able to play given the amount of pain hes suffering.My level of optimism? I dont have any; Im even-keel right now. Im not expecting him to play or not to play, Gruden said. I dont really know. Ive just got to wait to see tomorrow how hes doing and well go from there.He has a history of getting hurt. He hasnt played a full 16-game season in his career, having missed 16 games during the past four seasons, including two this year.Reed has 59 receptions for 630 yards and five touchdowns in nine games this season. The Atlanta Braves have definite interest in Tim Tebow and are looking into signing him to a minor league deal, a baseball source told ESPNs Pedro Gomez.The Braves were one of five clubs that spoke one-on-one with Tebow after his Los Angeles workout Tuesday, the source said.The former NFL quarterback announced last month that he is interested in returning to baseball, a sport he hasnt played since he was a high school junior in 2005.He generated mixed reviews during his session that lasted more than two hours,?showing off a powerful bat and a few areas of needed improvement.ddddddddddddThe Braves were among the 28 MLB teams that attended Tebows workout at Dedeaux Field on the campus of USC.?Only the Chicago Cubs and the Oakland Athletics didnt attend.Tebow, 29, has been working out since late May with former big league catcher Chad Moeller, who runs a baseball school in Scottsdale, Arizona.Information from ESPN senior writer Jerry Crasnick and The Associated Press contributed to this report.
