Jordan Reed sits, RG III 'making progress'

ASHBURN, Va. -- Washington Redskins tight end Jordan Reed didn’t practice -- and quarterback Robert Griffin III created a mini-stir by stretching with the team for the first time since his Week 2 injury. But Griffin bolted after they were done stretching, and there is still no concrete timetable for his return.

But the immediate question and concern surrounds Reed, the second-year tight end. Coach Jay Gruden said there is still a chance he will play Monday against Seattle. He is listed as questionable on the injury report. Washington will work him out Sunday.

"We’ll stretch him out a little bit and if he doesn’t feel he can run full speed, then we’ll hold him out," Gruden said.

Reed said he has not yet tested his injured hamstring by running full speed. Both he and Gruden said there was no setback in his recovery, and the Redskins held him out just to give him another day of rest.

"He feels OK," Gruden said. "I know how these things are ... He’s been running, but full speed? I can’t tell. I haven’t seen him run in a long time, I don’t know what his full speed is now. That’s what we’ll look at [Sunday]."

Cornerback Tracy Porter (hamstring) is out for Monday, which is no surprise considering he hasn’t practiced all week. Left tackle Trent Williams (knee) was limited and will be questionable for Monday. But Gruden and Williams have expressed confidence about his availability.

Guard Shawn Lauvao was a full participant and is expected to start Monday. Linebacker Akeem Jordan also was a full participant, meaning he could play for the first time this season.

Defensive end Kedric Golston (groin) and safety Trenton Robinson (ankle) were limited. Tight end Niles Paul (concussion) was a full participant.

As for Griffin’s appearance during the stretching, Gruden said "he’s making progress." But both he and Griffin declined to say where he was in his recovery. Griffin was walking without a boot.
