Redskins injury report: Amerson limited
By John Keim
ASHBURN, Va. -- Washington Redskins cornerback David Amerson was limited again in practice, but coach Mike Shanahan said he passed his tests and if that continues he’ll play against Chicago on Sunday.
Amerson suffered a concussion in Sunday’s 31-16 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. The Redskins could use him against the Bears and their big receivers -- 6-foot-4 Brandon Marshall and 6-foot-3 Alshon Jeffery -- this weekend.
Meanwhile, every other player was a full participation in practice, including nose tackle Chris Neild who was hurt in the first half of the Sept. 29 win at Oakland.
For Chicago, linebacker James Anderson (back), tight end Martellus Bennett (knee), defensive tackle Stephen Paea (toe) and cornerback Charles Tillman (knee) were limited in practice.
