Redskins missing TEs Reed, Paul against Giants

Tight end Jordan Reed is inactive for the second consecutive

game because of a concussion, leaving the struggling Washington

Redskins without their second-leading receiver.

Reed, a rookie third-round draft pick out of Florida, has 45

catches for 499 yards and three touchdowns.

Also out for Washington against the New York Giants on Sunday

night are tight end Niles Paul, who is sick, and fullback Darrel

Young, who has a hamstring injury.

Giants receiver Hakeem Nicks is active after missing last week’s

loss to the Dallas Cowboys with an abdominal injury.

As expected, New York defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul

(shoulder), running back Brandon Jacobs (knee) and cornerback Corey

Webster (ankle) are all inactive.
