On Thursday, Nov. 28, 2013, Redskins HC Mike Shanahan addressed the media following afternoon practice at Redskins Park in Ashburn, VA.
On the injury report:
“Did not participate… [Tight end] Niles Paul did not – still sick. DY [fullback Darrel Young] – hamstring – did not participate. [Tight end] Jordan Reed was limited, but he did pass [his concussion test] and [safety Jose] Gumbs was full with the ankle.
On if he anticipates Reed playing this Sunday:
“If he passes every day, yes.”
On his level of concern with whether or not Paul will be able to play this weekend:
“You never know. He’s sick enough to miss two days, so he’s not feeling well. We’ll just have to wait and see.”
On Paul missing two days of practice:
“He’s sick. He’s not here. He hasn’t come to any meetings. He’s feeling ill. The doctors said he should just get some rest.”
On if there is a chance Young will play this weekend:
“Yeah, I think there’s a chance. I think we’ll have a better idea tomorrow. He tried a couple days ago and he was on the treadmill and got a pretty good workout in. But as he pushed off, he felt a little twinge in there, which isn’t a good sign. I’ll get a better feel tomorrow.”
