Trent Williams is day-to-day with a bone bruise

The Redskins’ starting tackles are now bookends, in a bad way.

With right tackle Jammal Brown already missing due to a hip injury, left tackle Trent Williams is out with a foot injury suffered in Buffalo on Thursday night.

“He has a bone bruise,” coach Mike Shanahan said, via comments distributed by the team.  “He’s pretty sore right now.  We’ll have to play it day-by-day.  I know it’ll be a few days.”

Shanahan said it’s “wait and see” as to whether Williams will play in the team’s second preseason game, next Saturday at Chicago.

“It’s always disappointing when somebody goes down, but it’s the nature of the game,” Shanahan said.  “That’s why you build depth.  Like we talked about at the beginning of the year, we got a few [offensive linemen] in the draft, got a couple in free agency, so we have a little bit more depth than we had a year ago.  And it’s a good thing we do.”

He’s right.  Because they have a young franchise quarterback who needs to be protected.

    He’ll be fine and the Redskins will be fine. No one will stop RGIII and the Redskins from the 10+ year dominance they are about to embark on brother!!! HTTR.

    Hulksters right….look out NFC east!! Willie Smith is getting better and he’s going to fill the role nicely I think….unless he becomes the right tackle.

    No big deal. Last time he got a little something from Fred Davis for the pain & was back out there in no time!!

    At least he didn’t headbutt his twitter wife in the forehead.

    Put him on a shelf. He’s too important to wear down in preseason.

    Doesn’t matter when you have the most overrated qb coming out of the draft throwing the ball sister.
