Redskins tight end Jordan Reed did not practice for a second consecutive day and his status for next Monday night’s game against the San Francisco 49ers is now in serious jeopardy.

Reed sustained a concussion in Sunday’s 24-16 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. He has missed two consecutive practices and Washington coach Mike Shanahan has “no idea” if Reed will be able to practice on Friday.

“You don’t know about a concussion,” Shanahan said. “If you’ve ever had a concussion, you really don’t know until the next day. You wake up and see how you feel and the doctors will go through their tests.”

Reed did not pass the necessary off-field tests on Thursday, Shanahan said. He needs to do that, participate in non-contact drills one day and then make it through a full practice the next without experiencing more concussion symptoms before being cleared by team doctors.

There is still time. If Reed wakes up feeling better on Friday, he can practice on Saturday – an option this week thanks to the Monday night game. If not, the Redskins will turn back to Fred Davis, who hasn’t played since the Oct. 13 game at Dallas. He’s in a similar situation to wide receiver Josh Morgan, who was upset about being benched last weekend, but will return to the lineup on Monday thanks to the season-ending left knee injury to Leonard Hankerson.

“I think it’s only awkward if you just avoid the situation,” Washington offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan said. “Josh and Fred are two of my favorite guys that I coach, just as people. I like being around them. They’re good dudes. They’re fun to be around. I know last week was tough for them.”

In other injury news, defensive lineman Stephen Bowen (right knee) did not practice for the second day in a row. Cornerback Josh Wilson was limited with an infected toe. Safety Jose Gumbs (ankle) was limited as well. Fullback Darrel Young was a new addition to the injury list. He has a sore hamstring and was limited in Thursday’s practice. Cornerback E.J. Biggers, who suffered a right knee injury in the Philadelphia game, practiced fully.
