• Left tackle Trent Williams (bone bruise, left foot) and left guard Maurice Hurt (left knee tendon) likely will play against Chicago, coach Mike Shanahan said.

For Williams, playing with his teammates is a matter of leadership.

“I feel it’s my duty to be out there with the team,” Williams said. “If I’m not only out there but for 10 plays, I feel like I need to be out there to help set the tone. We’re a young offense trying to get direction, and I feel I can help us get that.”

• Right guard Chris Chester (sprained left ankle) might play. Outside linebacker Markus White will not play after he fractured a rib and bruised his kidney during Wednesday’s practice.

• The Redskins signed defensive tackle Marlon Favorite to replace Chris Neild (knee), who is on injured reserve.
