Redskins LT Trent Williams is a candidate for an extension.
Williams is signed through 2015, but will count $13.7 million against the cap. He graded out as a top-15 left tackle by Pro Football Focus this year despite playing through multiple injuries. A three-time Pro Bowler, Williams was drafted prior to the new CBA and is already one of the highest paid offensive linemen in the league. The Redskins could lower his cap hit by extending him this offseason. Jan 17 - 4:14 PM

Redskins LT Trent Williams suffered a high-ankle sprain in Sunday's loss.

Williams has the whole offseason to heal, but it's a fitting coda to a season where he battled through all manner of injuries. True to form, Williams still missed only one game, and was dominant when on the field. Going on 27, Williams will make $10.25 million in the final year of his rookie contract next season.

Redskins LT Trent Williams (shoulder) will be a game-time decision for Week 17.

Williams re-injured his shoulder in Saturday's win over the Eagles. He's unlikely to get in much practice time, but has a chance to play this week. Washington promoted OL Rishaw Johnson to provide depth.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
