“It’s easy as long as everybody is doing their responsibility,” Wilson said. “It’s tough when they’re not. You’ve got double moves, you’ve got everything else out there. A guy is supposed to be where he’s supposed to be.”

Asked specifically about Wilson’s comments, Doughty accepted responsibility but said he wished the situation would have been handled privately.

“They know it’s my thing,” Doughty said. “If anybody asked me about that after the game, I would have told them. I sat in the locker room and was open to questions, and I left. I’d like to take care of that within our room. We know whose fault it is, and I’ll take the blame for that, and we’ll go out there and try to be better.”

Meriweather’s setback to cost him four more weeks

Safety Brandon Meriweather is expected to miss four more weeks because of the setback he suffered to his sprained left knee in the collision with receiver Aldrick Robinson before the Tampa Bay game Sept. 30.

Meriweather has a second-degree medial collateral ligament sprain and a third-degree (torn) posterior cruciate ligament, Shanahan said.

Right tackle Jammal Brown (left hip), who is eligible to come off the physically unable to perform list next week, might be moved to the active roster after the Redskins‘ bye week Nov. 11, Shanahan said.

Brown’s recovery from surgery has progressed to the point where he is performing conditioning and football drills.
