Redskins Linebacker Rocky McIntosh Likely To Play Against Bears

The Redskins suffered a pretty big loss last week when linebacker Rocky McIntosh was forced to miss the game against the Indianapolis Colts due to a mild concussion. McIntosh is having a career year in Jim Haslett's 3-4 scheme, and has solidified a struggling unit.

Luckily for the Redskins, McIntosh appears to be much better now. He practiced today, and it sounds like he expects to play against the Chicago Bears on Sunday. Via TBD's Mike Jones.

With McIntosh out, H.B. Blades started at linebacker against the Colts.
