Washington Redskins defensive end Stephen Bowen and fullback Darrel Young are inactive because of injury and will not play Monday against the San Francisco 49ers.

Bowen tore the PCL in his right knee in the Redskins’ victory over the Chicago Bears on Oct. 20, but experienced soreness in practice leading up to last Sunday’s loss to the Philadelphia Eagles and did not participate at all in two of three practices this past week.

Young, who has a history of hamstring strains, pulled the muscle in practice on Thursday but was able to practice in a limited manner on Saturday.

With Bowen inactive, Chris Baker will step in as the starting defensive end on the right side. And, with Young injured, tight end Niles Paul is likely to assume Young’s snaps.

The Redskins had previously ruled tight end Jordan Reed out as he recovers from a concussion sustained in the first half of the game against the Eagles, leading to the return of Fred Davis, who is active for the first time in the last six games.

Davis, who last played Oct. 13 in a 31-16 road loss to the Dallas Cowboys, has caught just three passes for 25 yards after catching 24 for 325 in seven games last season before tearing his left Achilles’ tendon.

The Redskins have also turned back to wide receiver Joshua Morgan, who was inactive last week as the team needed to clear a spot on the game day roster for wide receiver/return specialist Nick Williams. Morgan will be the top Z receiver, or flanker, in the absence of Leonard Hankerson, who tore the ACL and LCL in his left knee in the game against the Eagles.

Lance Lewis, who was signed off the practice squad last Tuesday to fill Hankerson’s roster spot, is active and figures to help on special teams.

Third quarterback Rex Grossman, left guard Josh LeRibeus, free safety Jose Gumbs and outside linebacker Brandon Jenkins are also inactive. Gumbs is still recovering from a sprained left ankle sustained Oct. 27 against the Denver Broncos.
