Four Redskins sit out practice
By John Keim
ASHBURN, Va. -- Four Washington Redskins did not practice Wednesday and two others were limited, a tough way to begin a week in which they’re trying to snap a four-game losing streak.
Tight end Jordan Reed (concussion), safety Brandon Meriweather (sternum contusion), safety Reed Doughty (concussion) and left tackle Trent Williams (foot contusion) did not practice. Doughty, however, was cleared to practice but the coaches kept him out.
Fullback Darrel Young (hamstring), linebacker London Fletcher (ankle) and corner DeAngelo Hall (hip and back) were limited. Tight end Niles Paul, who missed last week with an illness, was a full participant in practice.
Williams was walking in a protective boot Monday, but said, “I feel fine. Got a bone bruise. It’s fine, though.”
Reed missed Sunday's game with a concussion suffered against Philadelphia and missed the past two games. He said he was going to play Sunday even though he felt more symptoms.
"I wasn't going to say nothing, but they noticed it in me and got it out of me," Reed said.
He had two concussions at Florida.
"It's worse now," Reed said. "In college I didn't miss games."
For Kansas City, tackle Branden Albert (knee), tight end Anthony Fasano (concussion/knee), linebacker Justin Houston (elbow), receiver Dexter McCluster (not injury related) did not practice. Defensive end Mike DeVito (knee) and safety Kendrick Lewis (knee) were limited.
