SANTA CLARA -- Defensive ends Ray McDonald and Justin Smith did not practice Wednesday for the 49ers on the first day the team began its on-field preparations to face the Washington Redskins on Sunday.McDonald did not play the final 2 12 quarters against the Cleveland Browns due to a left hamstring strain. His status for Sunday's game remains unclear.Smith's day off was not injury-related, the team reported. He watched practice but did put on pads to participate. Coach Jim Harbaugh chose to give Smith a day of rest. Smith has played 166 consecutive games, a streak that began during his rookie season in 2001 with the Cincinnati Bengals.Smith has played nearly every snap for the 49ers' defense this season. He was so exhausted in the fourth quarter against the Cleveland Browns that he removed himself from the game for two plays. On the second play, the Browns scored on a 45-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Colt McCoy to Joshua Cribbs.
The Redskins had three starters who did not practice Wednesday. Receiver Santana Moss (hand) has been ruled out for the game. Safety Oshiomogho Atogwe (toe, knee) and tight end Fred Davis (ankle) did not participate.The injury-depleted Redskins, who lost starting running back Tim Hightower to a season-ending injury two weeks ago, will not have newly acquired Tashard Choice, either. Choice, claimed off waivers from the Dallas Cowboys, has a hamstring injury that will keep him out of action.Here are the practice participation reports that both teams submitted to the NFL:49ERS PRACTICE REPORT
