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.
Briefly speaking to reporters in the locker room before today's practice, McIntosh -- who suffered the concussion against Green Bay and was inactive against the Colts -- was asked how he was feeling.
"Good," he said. "And Coach Shanahan will handle all you guys' questions."
With McIntosh out, H.B. Blades started at linebacker against the Colts.
