Redskins’ Doughty out for Sunday’s game

The Washington Redskins have ruled out safety Reed Doughty for

Sunday’s game against the Denver Broncos because of lingering

effects of a concussion.

The Redskins said Saturday that Doughty did not make the trip

with the team to Denver.

Doughty was injured in last week’s win over Chicago. He was

limited in practice on Wednesday and Thursday, but did not practice

on Friday.

Doughty’s absence leaves the Redskins without both starting

safeties as they face Peyton Manning and the Broncos. Brandon

Meriweather was suspended one game by NFL for helmet-to-helmet hits

against the Bears.
