Jordan Reed again misses practice with concussion symptoms

Redskins tight end Jordan Reed again missed practice on Friday and has yet to pass the necessary tests to allow him back on the field following last Sunday’s concussion.

Reed appears unlikely to play in Monday night’s game against the San Francisco 49ers, though he has not yet been ruled out. He sustained a concussion in Sunday’s loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

“Still going through the [concussion] protocol,” Shanahan said. “We’ll go through the protocol again [Saturday], see how he does.”

Reed has to pass the tests just to begin off-field workouts and then must go through a non-contact and a contact practice. Saturday is the team’s final practice before the game.

Meanwhile, defensive end Stephen Bowen (right knee) and fullback Darrel Young (hamstring) did not practice, either. Young was hurt during practice on Wednesday, according to Washington coach Mike Shanahan. But Young said he remains hopeful that he can play on Monday night.

Cornerback Josh Wilson was back at practice after being limited with a toe injury earlier in the week. Cornerback E.J. Biggers again practiced in full despite a right knee injury that he sustained on Sunday.
