Safety Reed Doughty and tight end Jordan Reed both said Friday that they anticipate playing Sunday versus the Kansas City Chiefs after experiencing problem-free recoveries from concussions this past week.

Doughty left last Sunday’s game against the Giants with a concussion, his second of the season, but hadn’t had any lingering effects. Reed, meantime, missed the past two games because of a concussion after suffering his first of the season against Philadelphia. He had hoped to play last week, but had experienced headaches Saturday and Sunday nights and was then held out.

The Redskins officially listed both players as questionable on the injury report. Also questionable for the Redskins are safety Brandon Meriweather (bruised sternum) and fullback Darrel Young (hamstring).

Listed as probable for Sunday’s game are linebacker London Fletcher (ankle), DeAngelo Hall (hip, back), left tackle Trent Williams (foot) and tight end Niles Paul, who missed all of last week and the Giants game with a bug.
