Redskins rule out safety Reed Doughty

AP

The Redskins will be missing both starting safeties on Sunday in Denver.

The club ruled out strong safety Reed Doughty on Saturday, the club said. Doughty suffered a concussion in the Oct. 20 win vs. Chicago.

Free safety Brandon Meriweather was suspended for Sunday’s game after drawing two personal foul penalties against Chicago.

According to the Washington Post, reserve safeties Bacarri Rambo and Jose Gumbs have each received a good deal of practice reps this week.

Doughty, 31, has recorded 26 tackles in six games (three starts) for Washington this season.

  1. A certain QB named Manning is drooling right now. This is going to be one scene where Rambo doesnt doesnt come out on top!

    Reed is not that great a cover guy but he has a nose for the ball.

    Jose Gumbs? Who is that?

  2. We could play with couple of extra defensive backs and still give up more than 5 TDs. Defense is absolutely atrocious. Haslett’s a one trick pony!

  3. listen up Guys!!!! The Redskins defense is awful but guess what Denver is dead last in total defense,with that said….The Redskins with a much improved RGIII could put up 100 points just as well!!!! However I hate those safeties the Redskins are going to start,Yuck!!!! Rambo is God awful and Jose Gumbs is just a special teams guy! Skins need a good day from Orakpo,Kerrigan and Cofield!!! Go Pass rush!!!!

  4. Awfully hypocritical to bash the name Redskins, but then use it to in a headline to entice clicks.

    5 more hours….

    Please, just one day…

    I promise I will not be upset anymore (I realize nobody cares if I’m upset except my mom, girlfriend, and dog) if PFT can make it one day without a “Change The Name” post

  5. To anyone who actually believes that the name “Redskins” is deviously being used to “entice”
    clicks…since that club is sooooo gold right now…

    I’ve got a great team in Jacksonville I can sell you…

  6. Sad to hear the Coloradan won’t be able to play in his home state. Reed is very loved in Johnstown, CO

    Mr. lance19, what you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    You “added” the word ‘devious’ and also implied that I said the club was “sooooo gold right now” (type like a valley girl much?).

    My point is – either boycott the name, or don’t. This site has pushed an agenda regarding the Redskins name for quite some time now, and then they nonchalantly use the name at the same time.

    Nothing devious about it. However, if they simply used “Washington”, it doesn’t hold the same value as Redskins, and that, my we todd did friend, is a fact.

    Clean it up

  9. And no mention of the absolute cheap hit to a defenseless player that concussed him. Yeah, Martellus Bennet, is your guy a punk? Merriweather didn’t concuss anybody.
