Tight ends Jordan Reed and Niles Paul and fullback Darrel Young will be listed by the Washington Redskins as questionable to play Sunday against the New York Giants.

Reed, who is recovering from a concussion sustained in the second quarter of the Redskins’ loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Nov. 17, practiced each of the last two days after passing tests for the first time on Tuesday.

Paul has not been at the facility at all this week as he recovers from an illness. Coach Mike Shanahan said Paul, who injured his ribs Monday against the San Francisco 49ers, has been having headaches and experiencing nausea and has been receiving antibiotics.

Young strained a hamstring at practice last week and missed the game against the 49ers. He and Shanahan each said Friday his availability for Sunday would be a game-time decision.

Paul filled in for Young as the Redskins’ fullback on Monday. Shanahan wouldn’t share the Redskins’ plans if neither player is able to play, but it stands to reason the Redskins could have tight end Logan Paulsen assume those snaps.

If Paul is to play, Shanahan said, it’s likely only to be on special teams. He has been the Redskins’ primary kickoff returner each of the past three games.

Free safety Jose Gumbs, who sprained his left ankle in the Redskins’ loss to the Denver Broncos on Oct. 27, is considered probable after completing a full practice each day this week.

The Giants ruled defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, running back Brandon Jacobs and cornerbacks Trumaine McBride and Corey Webster out for Sunday’s game because of injury, while wide receiver Hakeem Nicks and cornerback Terrell Thomas are each listed as probable.
