Trent Williams, London Fletcher Held Out Of Redskins’ Practice For Third Day
ASHBURN – The Washington Redskins kept linebacker London Fletcher and left tackle Trent Williams out of practice again Thursday because of injury, though Mike Shanahan said it’s still too early to determine their availability for Monday.
“All you can do is worry about something you control,” Shanahan said. “They’re getting a lot of treatment every day. They both want to play. They’re both doing everything they can to play. We’ll just take it day by day and see the progress that they make.”
Both have been slowed by left ankle injuries, though Williams has also been bothered by a bruised left thigh.
Williams has taken pride this season in playing while hurt.
“When you’re less than 100 percent, it makes it that much harder,” Williams said. “I just feel like for me to be a huge asset to this team, I have to play hurt and I have to be able to finish games.”
