Reed, Bowen sit out again

ASHBURN, Va. -- Washington Redskins tight end Jordan Reed has not yet passed a concussion test and sat out his third straight day of practice, a bad sign for his availability in Monday's game against the San Francisco 49ers.

If Reed can't play, then Fred Davis will be active for the first time since the Redskins played at Dallas on Oct. 13. Davis, a pending free agent, wants to prove he can still play and remind everyone he can still make big plays. Reed is their most athletic tight end and one of their best players in the open field. Before Davis injured his Achilles' tendon, he was viewed as a strong open-field runner after the catch and praised for his athleticism. But Reed surpassed Davis on the depth chart as the primary pass-catching tight end.

Also, defensive end Stephen Bowen did not practice again because of a sprained knee. Bowen first injured his knee in a win over the Chicago Bears on Oct. 20 and re-injured it again in Sunday's loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fullback Darrel Young (hamstring) did not practice but said he would play Monday.

Corner Josh Wilson (toe infection) practiced.
