RICHMOND – Redskins tight end Jordan Reed returned to the practice field on Tuesday after fighting an illness since last Saturday, but did only light conditioning drills.

Reed is expected to participate fully in practice on Thursday back in Asburn. Washington coach Jay Gruden said it was either food poisoning or a viral illness that kept Reed off the field.

Either way, he’s feeling better just one day after again vomiting on his way to practice. Meanwhile, linebacker Ryan Kerrigan, defensive end Jarvis Jenkins, center Kory Lichtensteiger and wide receiver Santana Moss were given the day off.

Gruden says rest, not injuries, played a role in that decision. Moss did come up hobbling during a joint practice last week against the New England Patriots.

Injured safety Phillip Thomas (hamstring) and running back Chris Thompson (ankle) worked out on the drill field as they try to return from injury.
