Redskins strong safety Brandon Meriweather again handled a limited workload in practice on Thursday while remaining under observation following the concussion that knocked him out of last Sunday’s game.

Meriweather went through individual drills for a second consecutive day. If he doesn’t experience any setbacks, he will practice fully on Friday, Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said.

Meanwhile, defensive end Kedric Golston remained limited by an abdominal injury that he suffered in Sunday’s game, Shanahan said. Place kicker Kai Forbath didn’t take part in any of Thursday’s action as was previously planned, and it’s expected that he will test out his injured groin by kicking either Friday or Saturday.

The Redskins also listed defensive end Stephen Bowen as limited with a knee injury on their practice report.

Nose tackle Barry Cofield was a full participant despite the fact that his broken hand is still healing. Cofield for the first time in two weeks practiced without his club cast on his hand. Shanahan said that Cofield will also be able to play without the club on Sunday.
