Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said cornerback Josh Wilson practiced fully on Tuesday, two days after suffering a blow to the head that left him dizzy late in Washington’s 23-10 victory over the New York Giants.
Wilson -- who recorded an interception, four tackles and three pass breakups – didn’t finish the game. On Tuesday, Wilson was tested for concussion-like symptoms. But Shanahan said that the cornerback displayed no lingering effects from the hit.
Defensive end Stephen Bowen was limited in Tuesday’s practice with a knee injury, and right tackle Jammal Brown returned to practice for the first time since suffering a strained groin during pre-game warm-ups Dec. 11. Brown participated in a limited capacity, as did fullback Mike Sellers, who hyperextended his elbow in the same game and, like Brown, missed the Giants’ game.
Running back Roy Helu, who on Sunday suffered knee and toe injuries, participated in drill work Tuesday but didn’t practice. Shanahan said he expected Helu to be able to participate in Wednesday’s practice.
The Redskins didn’t release an official injury report Tuesday because NFL rules only require teams to submit them on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. The Redskins practiced Tuesday – normally a day off – because they have a shortened week. They play on Saturday against Minnesota.
