Washington Redskins defensive back David Amerson was listed as questionable by the team for Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears.
But Amerson, who suffered a concussion in Sunday’s loss to the Dallas Cowboys, participated in Friday’s practice and again passed his mandatory neuropsychological tests for another day. If he does so again on Saturday then he will be able to play against the Bears at FedEx Field on Sunday.
Amerson was briefly knocked unconscious by a blindside hit from Dallas’ Cameron Lawrence on a third-quarter kickoff and did not return in that 31-16 loss. He was limited in practice on Wednesday and Thursday, but completed a full practice on Friday and says he has not had any recurrence of concussion symptoms.
Six other Redskins were listed as probable to play against Chicago. Tight end Fred Davis (ankle), linebacker Brandon Jenkins (ankle), center Will Montgomery (knee), cornerback Jerome Murphy (ankle), nose tackle Chris Neild (calf) and tight end Logan Paulsen (knee) are all expected to be available.
Meanwhile, the two Bears players listed as questionable were starting tight end Martellus Bennett, who has a knee injury, and starting cornerback Charles Tillman, who also has a knee injury. Neither player practiced on Wednesday and both were limited in Thursday’s practice.
