Reed Doughty starts for Kareem Moore
Redskins free safety Reed Doughty started in place of Kareem Moore in Sunday's 17-14 victory over the Chicago Bears, a move Doughty said was more situational than a demotion for Moore.
"Chris [Horton] and me and Kareem have all been switching off," Doughty said. "They're just going to play us as they see fit, what kind of situations we're in."
Doughty played the bulk of snaps against the Bears, though Moore did enter in the second half. Moore, who missed the first two games with a knee injury but started four weeks in a row, has struggled against the run recently, and he appeared in Doughty's place in the second half, when the Bears began to pass more frequently.
"I had an idea I'd play a lot," Doughty said. "They said we're going to switch off some, depending on the situation. I really don't know what makes them do it."
Doughty said Horton, who has 15 starts in his NFL career, also worked some with the first unit during the week. Doughty and Moore each finished with two tackles Sunday.
"We all know we have to be ready at all times," Doughty said.
