Trent Williams, Injured Linemen Go Through Individual Drills At Practice
ASHBURN – Though he did not participate in team drills at practice Monday, Trent Williams said he believes he could do so as early as Tuesday after sustaining a bone bruise in his left foot.
“I feel a lot better, a lot better,” Williams said. “If [head coach Mike Shanahan] lets me go, I’m going to go.”
The Washington Redskins’ left tackle injured the foot in the first quarter of the team’s 7-6 victory at Buffalo on Thursday. He clarified that he had an MRI, not x-rays, on the foot, which showed no break, and he did participate in the Redskins’ walkthrough and individual drills Monday.
“I think he’s still a little bit sore,” Shanahan said. “Gonna be day-by-day. We’re not really sure how quickly it’s going to improve, but you know, he went through walkthroughs today in the bubble and he did a little bit out there today, so that was encouraging.”
Right guard Chris Chester, who sprained his left ankle in practice a week ago, and backup left guard Maurice Hurt, who sat out Saturday with inflammation in a tendon in his left knee, each also partook in individual drills but sat during the team portion.
All three could be cleared to play Saturday, when the Redskins continue their preseason at Chicago.
