Trent Williams, London Fletcher Each Listed As Questionable For Monday
The Washington Redskins have listed left tackle Trent Williams and linebacker London Fletcher as questionable to play against the New York Giants on Monday on their official injury report. Each player has a sprained left ankle, while Williams also has a bruised left thigh.
“You’re keeping your fingers crossed,” head coach Mike Shanahan said Friday. “They’ve both got significant injuries, and you’re hoping over the next few days they’re ready to go.”
Fletcher, who sprained the ankle against Carolina on Nov. 4, has played in each of the Redskins’ last two games despite Shanahan’s belief that he wouldn’t be able to do so. Fletcher has played in every game since debuting with St. Louis in the first game of the 1998 season – a streak of 235 consecutive games.
Receiver Pierre Garçon (right foot), cornerback Josh Wilson (left shoulder) and linebacker Chris Wilson (hamstring) are all considered probable. Shanahan said earlier in the week that he expects Garçon, who missed six games this season – including the first meeting with the Giants – to play the remainder of the year, barring a significant setback.
New York announced Saturday that tight end Travis Beckum will not play after experiencing soreness in his right knee – the same knee in which he tore the ACL last season. Safety Kenny Phillips was listed as doubtful after aggravating a sprained MCL in his right knee, while right tackle David Diehl, receiver Domenik Hixon and defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul are all considered questionable to play.
