ASHBURN, Va. -- The Washington Redskins caught a break when the Kansas City Chiefs released their injury report. They might be in good shape with their own as well.

The Chiefs will be without linebacker Justin Houston (elbow), who has a team-best 11 sacks this season, tight end Anthony Fasano (concussion/knee) and offensive tackle Branden Albert (knee) for Sunday’s game (1 p.m. ET, CBS).

Meanwhile, the Redskins listed safety Reed Doughty (concussion), tight end Jordan Reed (concussion), safety Brandon Meriweather (chest) and fullback Darrel Young (hamstring) as questionable. Both Doughty and Reed expressed confidence they would play, though that’s usually the case with players. Meriweather also sounded hopeful about playing and Young has expressed optimism for each of the past two weeks (only to sit).

Both Doughty and Meriweather were full participants in practice. Jordan Reed had expected to play last week as well, but a game-day headache sidelined him for a second consecutive game.
ASHBURN, Va. -- Washington Redskins linebacker London Fletcher was a full participant in practice, clearly a sign that his consecutive games streak is not in much jeopardy.

Fletcher has played in 252 consecutive games, but sprained his left ankle near the end of Sunday’s loss to the New York Giants. Fletcher didn’t want to discuss his injury, but the fact that he was full-go says plenty.

Also, tight end Jordan Reed (concussion), safety Reed Doughty (concussion), safety Brandon Meriweather (chest), fullback Darrel Young (hamstring) were limited. Doughty had been cleared to practice Wednesday while Reed was able to return because he passed his tests Thursday.

Meanwhile, for Kansas City tackle Branden Albert (knee), tight end Anthony Fasano (concussion/knee) and linebacker Justin Houston (elbow) did not practice. Everyone else was full-go.

ASHBURN, Va. -- Four Washington Redskins did not practice Wednesday and two others were limited, a tough way to begin a week in which they’re trying to snap a four-game losing streak.

Tight end Jordan Reed (concussion), safety Brandon Meriweather (sternum contusion), safety Reed Doughty (concussion) and left tackle Trent Williams (foot contusion) did not practice. Doughty, however, was cleared to practice but the coaches kept him out.

Fullback Darrel Young (hamstring), linebacker London Fletcher (ankle) and corner DeAngelo Hall (hip and back) were limited. Tight end Niles Paul, who missed last week with an illness, was a full participant in practice.

Williams was walking in a protective boot Monday, but said, “I feel fine. Got a bone bruise. It’s fine, though.”

Reed missed Sunday's game with a concussion suffered against Philadelphia and missed the past two games. He said he was going to play Sunday even though he felt more symptoms.

"I wasn't going to say nothing, but they noticed it in me and got it out of me," Reed said.

He had two concussions at Florida.

"It's worse now," Reed said. "In college I didn't miss games."

For Kansas City, tackle Branden Albert (knee), tight end Anthony Fasano (concussion/knee), linebacker Justin Houston (elbow), receiver Dexter McCluster (not injury related) did not practice. Defensive end Mike DeVito (knee) and safety Kendrick Lewis (knee) were limited.
