Safety Reed Doughty left the Washington Redskins‘ win Sunday over the Chicago Bears after suffering  a concussion.

Doughty suffered the injury on an onside kick by the Bears in the fourth quarter.

He is subject to the NFL’s rules for the treatment of players who suffer concussions and must be cleared by an independent neurologist to practice and play.

Defensive end Stephen Bowen returned to the game after suffering a knee injury and tight end Jordan Reed returned after suffering a hip contusion.
