Payne (ankle) returned to practice Saturday but is still questionable to play in Thursday's preseason game against the Jets, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

While Payne practicing is a good sign for his health, the team wasn't in pads and it doesn't look like the Redskins are going to force the rookie back onto the field. Payne had originally aimed to make a return this week, so his status for Thursday depends entirely on whether or not he can start putting together full practices in the next few days.
