ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Bills receiver Eric Moulds participated in a no-pads workout Friday but his status remained questionable for Sunday's game against Washington.

It was Moulds' first practice since suffering a groin injury in Buffalo's 22-16 win against Cincinnati on Oct. 5.

"We'll work him out Sunday morning and see how he looks," coach Gregg Williams said. "He moved around pretty good."

Moulds, the Bills' leading receiver, was not available for comment after practice. He said earlier this week he was hopeful he would return after missing last weekend's 30-3 loss to the New York Jets. The Bills (3-3) managed only 193 total yards against the Jets.

Starting defensive tackle Sam Adams (sprained right ankle) also took part in Friday's practice but saw no change from his questionable status.

Linebacker Takeo Spikes was listed as probable after sitting out of practice ill.

The Redskins, meanwhile said starting running back Trung Candidate (sprained ankle) and left guard Dave Fiore, who has missed the last three games with a sore knee, would not play Sunday.

Washington also will be without starting defensive tackle Jermaine Haley, who has a hand injury.
