Cornerback David Amerson participated in the Washington Redskins’ practice Wednesday on a limited basis, Coach Mike Shanahan said.

Amerson suffered a concussion during Sunday night’s loss at Dallas but said earlier Wednesday he felt fine.

“He had no side effects so hopefully he’ll be okay tomorrow,” Shanahan said.

The only other Redskins player to be limited in Wednesday’s practice, according to Shanahan, was backup nose tackle Chris Neild, who is slowed by a calf injury.

Also, long snapper Nick Sundberg underwent surgery Wednesday to have the torn meniscus in his right knee repaired, Shanahan said. Sundberg, who is on the season-ending injured reserve list, faces a five-month recovery, according to Shanahan.

What’s ahead:

● The Redskins practice Thursday at 1 p.m.

● Robert Griffin III, Redskins try to block out the scrutiny.
