CHICAGO — Washington Redskins defensive end Jason Hatcher and tight end Derek Carrier are both active for Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears after being listed as questionable.

Hatcher has a pinched nerve in his neck and practiced just once this week. Carrier was inactive last week against the Dallas Cowboys because of a high left ankle and Achilles’ sprain.

As expected, running back Chris Thompson is inactive. Thompson tore the labrum in his left shoulder against the Cowboys and was ruled out on Friday. The other inactive players are inside linebacker Perry Riley (foot), strong safety Jeron Johnson (hamstring), quarterback Robert Griffin III, left guard Arie Kouandjio, tight end Je’Ron Hamm and wide receiver Andre Roberts.

Running back Pierre Thomas is also active. The Redskins signed the nine-year veteran on Friday to add depth to the backfield after Thompson’s injury. Coach Jay Gruden said that Thomas could play a few snaps on Sunday as the team’s third-down back.

For the second consecutive week, inside linebacker Keenan Robinson is also active. He missed three games with a variety of shoulder issues and did not play any snaps last week. Robinson said this week that he expects to be able to play a limited number of snaps on Sunday.
