The Redskins got one tight end back in practice on Wednesday, but were without the services of another.

Rookie Jordan Reed, who missed all of last week’s practices and Monday’s game with a concussion, returned in a limited capacity Wednesday, Coach Mike Shanahan said. Meanwhile, tight end Niles Paul missed practice with illness.

Reed will continue to be evaluated on a daily basis. If there are no setbacks, he should play Sunday night against the New York Giants, Shanahan said.

Fullback Darrel Young did not take part in the team portion of practice, Shanahan said. Young missed Monday’s game with a hamstring injury. Safety Jose Gumbs, who had been hampered by an ankle injury, practiced fully.
