A day after sitting out Thursday’s practice, free safety Ed Reed returned to Friday’s session, but he didn’t exactly dispel the notion that he might miss Sunday’s home contest against the Arizona Cardinals.

The seven-time Pro Bowl selection was not wearing his helmet nor was he carrying one. He took part in light drills but did not appear to be making any contact with teammates.

Reed suffered a stinger in Monday night’s 12-7 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars, but did not show any aftereffects during Wednesday’s practice – in which he fully participated.

Cornerback Danny Gorrer was present, but stood on the sideline. Gorrer suffered a thigh injury during Thursday’s practice.

Wide receiver Lee Evans (left ankle), left guard Ben Grubbs (strained ligaments in right toe), inside linebacker Dannell Ellerbe (hamstring) and rookie running back Anthony Allen (thigh) were absent.
