Date:

Redskins LT Trent Williams (shoulder) is active for Saturday's Week 16 game against the Eagles.

Williams was expected to play after practicing on a limited basis. His presence is an upgrade for Robert Griffin III and an offensive line that allowed seven sacks last week. The Redskins inactives are RB Roy Helu, LB Kennan Robinson, DE Jason Hatcher, WR Leonard Hankerson, LB Gabe Miller, CB Kenny Okoro, and OG Josh LeRibeus.

Redskins LT Trent Williams (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Week 16.

Williams was limited in practice the last two days, putting him on track to play against the Eagles. His return would be an upgrade for Robert Griffin III after Washington allowed seven sacks last week.
Dec 19 - 7:19 PM

Redskins LT Trent Williams left Sunday's Week 15 game against the Giants with a shoulder injury.

His return is questionable. Tom Compton will move over to the left side, with Tyler Polumbus taking over at right tackle.
Dec 14 - 3:24 PM

Redskins LT Trent Williams (ankle, MCL) is expected to return for Week 13.

It's a relief for the Redskins, as their protection of Robert Griffin III was simply abysmal in Week 12. Williams is among the best blindside protectors in the game, but it does remain to be seen how effective he'll be playing through two injuries. Either way, things can't go any worse for the Redskins than they did against the 49ers.

Speaking Monday, Redskins coach Jay Gruden confirmed LT Trent Williams has MCL and ankle sprains.

Grudes called Williams "day to day," but we'd consider him more week to week. Williams has shown a remarkable ability to play through pain during his five years in the NFL, but we'd expect him to miss at least one game, and likely more. It's a devastating blow for the reeling Redskins, as Williams is one of their only legit stars. Rookie Morgan Moses slid in on Robert Griffin III's blindside Sunday, and should remain there for however long Williams is sidelined.
Nov 17 - 3:05 PM

The initial diagnosis on Redskins LT Trent Williams is a sprained MCL in his right knee and a sprained ankle.

Considering how bad this injury looked initially, Williams is relieved to have avoided any ACL damage. However, the Redskins will likely be without their stud left tackle for at least a couple games. He was replaced by rookie Morgan Moses Sunday.

Redskins LT Trent Williams left Sunday's Week 11 game knee and ankle injuries.

He's been ruled out for the rest of the game. Williams partially dislocated his right knee earlier this season, but didn't miss any time. Rookie Morgan Moses has replaced him at left tackle.

Redskins LT Trent Williams (knee) is listed as questionable for Monday night against Seattle.

Williams is on track to play after practicing on a limited basis this week. Coach Jay Gruden said he feels "pretty good" about his chances of playing Monday. Washington would be forced to start Tom Compton if Williams is held out.
Oct 4 - 5:07 PM

Redskins LT Trent Williams (knee) participated in team drills in practice Friday.

Williams had been restricted to individual drills the first two practices of the week. The Redskins are optimistic Williams can play against the Seahawks on Monday night.
Oct 4 - 10:48 AM

Redskins LT Trent Williams says there's "nothing torn" in his right knee, and that he's "hopeful" of starting Monday's game against the Seahawks.

Williams didn't even undergo an MRI after departing last week's blowout loss, and has "no instability" in his knee. If there's a reason he could be held out, it's the Redskins' short turnaround between Weeks 5 and 6. Sitting Monday would give Williams over two weeks of rest. That could be the best course of action to keep him on the field for the rest of 2014.
Sep 30 - 1:19 PM

Redskins LT Trent Williams did not need an MRI exam on his injured right knee.

Coach Jay Gruden said Williams had no instability in his knee Friday morning. He will be listed as day-to-day, and could play Week 5 against the Seahawks. An elite left tackle, Williams avoiding a serious injury is a big boost for the Washington offensive line.
Sep 27 - 12:00 PM

Redskins LT Trent Williams will undergo an MRI on his injured right knee Friday.

Williams said after Thursday night's game that there was no ligament damage in his knee, but he thinks his kneecap popped out of place and back in when he was forced to leave the loss to the Giants. The Redskins can ill afford to lose Williams with immobile Kirk Cousins now at quarterback. He's an elite left tackle.

Redskins LT Trent Williams was forced from Washington's Week 4 game against the Giants with a strained right knee, and won't return.

The absolute last news the crumbling Redskins needed to hear. Williams appeared to be in a significant amount of discomfort on the sideline. His Week 5 status should be considered very much up in the air. Williams will likely undergo an MRI on Friday, but the Redskins may not update his status until Monday.
Sep 25 - 11:06 PM

NFL suspended umpire Roy Ellison one game for verbally abusing Redskins LT Trent Williams in Week 11 against Philadelphia.

Williams accused Ellison of calling him a "garbage-ass, disrespectful mutherf–––r." Ex-NFL head of officiating Mike Pereira disclosed this week that this wasn't the first time Ellison had been accused of verbally abusing players on the field. Pereira had to issue Ellison warnings about his behavior in the past.
