Josh Doctson, Chris Thompson active for Redskins vs. Jaguars
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. Wide receiver Josh Doctson will play for the Washington Redskins Sunday at the Jacksonville Jaguars after spending part of the week in concussion protocol.
Running back Chris Thompson and safety Montae Nicholson, who popped up on Washington’s injury report Friday with illnesses, are also active.

Defensive lineman Matt Ioannidis (shin) and offensive linemen Morgan Moses (ankle) and Ty Nsekhe (knee) are all active after being listed as questionable Friday.
Running back Samaje Perine and cornerback Greg Stroman are the Redskins’ most notable healthy scratches.
The Redskins also waived Kapri Bibbs over the weekend, so there will be just three running backs active: Thompson, Adrian Peterson and Byron Marshall.
Stroman, a rookie, played every game this season before Sunday’s scratch. He had a particularly bad game in last week’s blowout loss to the Giants -- filling in at returner, he was called for an illegal fair catch attempt and muffed a punt.
Quarterback Colt McCoy (leg), linebacker Ryan Anderson (hamstring), tight end Jordan Reed (ankle/foot) and guard Tony Bergstrom (knee/ankle) were ruled out on Friday.
For the Jaguars, kicker Josh Lambo (groin) was among their inactives. Jacksonville signed free agent kicker Kai Forbath to fill in this week. Running back Carlos Hyde was a healthy scratch a week after his worst performance yet for the Jags, his second team of 2018.
