Reed, Bowen sit out practice
By John Keim
ASHBURN, Va. -- Washington Redskins tight end Jordan Reed and defensive end Stephen Bowen did not practice for a second consecutive day, though it remains uncertain what their status will be for Monday night's game against the San Francisco 49ers.
Safety Jose Gumbs (ankle), corner Josh Wilson (infected toe) and fullback Darrel Young (hamstring) were limited.
If Reed can't play, then Fred Davis will get his first shot to play since Oct. 13 at Dallas. Davis has been inactive in large part because the Redskins like Reed better as a pass catcher and Logan Paulsen better as a blocker. Davis does not play special teams, so the Redskins keep Niles Paul as the third tight end.
The coaches say Davis' practice habits have improved since they started making him inactive. Davis is a free agent after the season.
