ASHBURN, Va. -- Washington Redskins cornerback David Amerson was limited in practice, three days after suffering a concussion in the 31-16 loss at the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. But Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said he's hopeful that Amerson will be fine Thursday.
Amerson said earlier on Wednesday that he has not felt any lingering affects from the concussion, which occurred thanks to a blindside hit on a second-half kick return. The Redskins can't afford to lose Amerson in a week where they're facing two big receivers in 6-foot-4 Brandon Marshall and 6-foot-3 Alshon Jeffery. At 6-foot-1, Amerson is the Redskins' tallest corner.
Meanwhile, backup nose tackle Chris Neild was limited with a calf injury. Linebacker Brandon Jenkins (ankle), center Will Montgomery (knee), corner Jerome Murphy (ankle) and tight end Logan Paulsen (knee) all practiced in full. Long snapper Nick Sundberg underwent surgery to repair the meniscus in his right knee and now faces a five-month recovery.
For Chicago, tight end Martellus Bennett (knee), defensive end Julius Peppers (not injury related) and corner Charles Tillman (knee) did not practice. Linebacker James Anderson (back), defensive tackle Stephen Paea (toe), safety Anthony Walters (hamstring) and safety Major Wright (knee) were limited.
