Trent Williams Has Bone Bruise In Knee, Considered Day-To-Day
ASHBURN – Trent Williams sustained a bone bruise in his right knee during the Washington Redskins’ 38-31 loss to Cincinnati on Sunday, according to head coach Mike Shanahan, and is considered day-to-day.
Williams was injured on the second offensive play while trying to block Bengals defensive end Michael Johnson. He attempted to return on multiple occasions, but finally left the game after the fourth play of the third quarter and was replaced by Jordan Black. He played only 14 of 76 offensive plays.
The left tackle declined to comment when asked about his health Monday morning and walked into the training room. Black said minutes earlier he had not been told whether or not he would be starting for Williams at Tampa Bay next weekend.
“If I’m gonna be the guy at left tackle this week, it’s easier to go into a game knowing you’re the starter than going into a game watching on the sidelines,” Black said. “As far as that goes, for me personally, getting a week of practice, preparing for an opponent, will be a help.”
