On Friday, Nov. 29, 2013, Redskins HC Mike Shanahan addressed the media following afternoon practice at Redskins Park in Ashburn, VA. 

.

On the injury report:
“[Tight end] Niles Paul – still sick with that illness. DY [fullback Darrel Young] – hamstring, was questionable and [tight end] Jordan Reed is questionable with the concussion. [Safety Jose] Gumbs was full.”
 
On where Paul has been recovering from his illness:
“He’s at home.”
 
On Paul’s illness:
“Yeah, he just told me he’s sick. I didn’t get into detail exactly what it was, but he’s just not feeling well – nauseated, headache.”
 
On if this illness is unusual:
“Yeah, he talked to the doctors and I was talking to [team physician] Dr. [Tony] Casolaro and I was talking to [Head Athletic Trainer] Larry [Hess] and [he’s] just not feeling good. [They] gave him a lot of antibiotics, but he was feeling better today so that’s a good sign. We’ll see how he is tomorrow.”
 
On Young’s participation in practice:
“We didn’t ask him to do anything today. He took just a few reps. We didn’t want to overdo it, but that’s a positive sign.”
 
On how Paul and Young are listed on the injury report:
“Both of them – questionable.”
 
On if Paul’s lack of practice will impact his playing time:
“Yeah, probably if he did play it would be more a special teams role than it would offense or defense. Special teams you have a much better chance, so we’ll take everything into consideration.”
 
On if Young’s status will be determined during pregame warm-ups:
“Yes.”
 
On who would play fullback in the absence of Paul and Young:
“We don’t talk about those plans.”
 
On who will fill the vacant roster spot:
“Yeah, we’re going to bring [cornerback] Chase Minnifield up.”
 
On why Minnifield earned the promotion:
“Well anytime you’re dealing with that cornerback position, we feel like he’s earned a right – the way he practices, the way he handles himself and he can play the corner or he can play inside in a Nickel situation. We just like the way he’s developed and how he’s handled himself, and that’s what you’re constantly doing, evaluating guys in practice. We just thought he would be a guy that we should bring up, and we’ll see how it goes. Hopefully, we stay healthy.”
 
On what tight end Jordan Reed provides in third-down situations:
“Well, anytime you have a guy that has that type of talent, you can feature him in one-on-one situations. A lot of times he has to be double-teamed. If you’re not double-teamed, it’s hard to cover him, so [it’s] pretty nice having a guy with that type of talent.”
