Redskins placed LT Trent Williams (knee) on injured reserve, ending his season.

He will require knee surgery. Going on I.R. now allows Williams to get the procedure out of the way and onto his rehab as soon as possible. Still one of the NFL's most dominant pass protectors when healthy, Williams will end up making only ten starts this year. Williams hasn't played a full 16-game season since 2013.

Redskins LT Trent Williams (knee) admitted he's unlikely to play again this season.

Williams could undergo surgery as soon as next week and estimates a six-month recovery. Despite being injured most of the year, Williams was named to his sixth straight Pro Bowl on Tuesday. Ty Nsekhe will finish out the year at left tackle for Washington.

Redskins declared LT Trent Williams, LB Zach Brown, WR Robert Davis, OG Kyle Kalis, DE Terrell McClain, S Montae Nicholson and C Demetrius Rhaney inactive for Week 15 against the Cardinals.

Williams has been hampered by a knee injury for much of the year and will likely undergo surgery after the season. Now that they're out of playoff contention, the Redskins may decide to go ahead and shut Williams down. Ryan Anderson (ankle), Ryan Grant (ankle), Maurice Harris (concussion), Morgan Moses (ankle) and Chase Roullier (hand) are all active for Week 15.

Redskins LT Trent Williams (knee) is questionable for Week 14 against the Chargers.

Morgan Moses (ankle) also drew the questionable tag. Williams didn't practice on Wednesday or Thursday and could be headed for a game-time decision. Ty Nsekhe would be a candidate to fill in on Kirk Cousins' blind side if Williams can't get the green light.

Redskins LT Trent Williams (knee) is active for Week 13 against the Cowboys.

Williams missed Week 12, but is a warrior who plays through just about anything you could imagine. Inactive for the Redskins are TE Jordan Reed, S Montae Nicholson, LB Pete Robertson, DL Caraun Reid, C Chase Roullier, WR Brian Quick and DL Terrelle McClain.
Thu, Nov 30, 2017 06:58:00 PM's Ian Rapoport reports Redskins LT Trent Williams (knee) will play Thursday against the Cowboys.

Williams sat out on Thanksgiving against the Giants. A final decision will likely be made following pre-game warmups. Even at well less than 100 percent, Williams' return would be a big boost.
Thu, Nov 30, 2017 03:42:00 PM

Redskins LT Trent Williams (knee) plans to continue playing even with Washington essentially out of playoff contention.

Williams has been dealing with a knee injury which will ultimately require surgery, but he is not ready to shut it down. "I still think there’s some merit to me finishing out this season, regardless if we’re in playoff contention or not," Williams said. "There’s still some outstanding opponents that I would like to go up against." While he wants to keep playing, Williams was held out of the game Thanksgiving night and was not able to practice on Monday. His status looks like it will be a week-to-week proposition the rest of the way.

Redskins declared OT Trent Williams, DL Terrell McClain, S Montae Nicholson, TE Jordan Reed, DL Caraun Reid, C Chase Roullier and LB Martrell Spaight inactive for Week 12 against the Giants.

Williams has been battling a right knee injury all season and couldn't get the green light playing on a short week. Ryan Anderson (knee), Zach Brown (Achilles), Ryan Grant (calf), Matt Ioannidis (hand, thigh), Anthony Lanier (knee), Morgan Moses (ankle, eye), Ty Nsekhe (core), Samaje Perine (finger) and Brandon Scherff (knee) are all active for Thursday night's Thanksgiving nightcap at FedEx Field.

Washington LT Trent Williams (knee) is officially active for Sunday's Week 10 game versus the Vikings.

LG Shawn Lauvao and C Spencer Long are also active after missing Week 9. The timing of getting their best offensive lineman and starters Long and Lovou couldn’t be better for Washington as they host a Minnesota defense averaging 3.0 sacks per game, seventh in the league. With all missing time over the past three weeks, Kirk Cousins had been sacked 14 times (11.3 percent of his dropbacks) the past three weeks after being sacked eight times over his first five games (4.8 percent of his dropbacks).

According to ESPN Redskins reporter John Keim, LT Trent Williams (questionable, knee) will be a game-time decision against the Vikings in Week 10.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said Williams is expected to play, though Keim's report isn't as definitive. Regardless, it sounds like Washington's beat-up offensive line is finally trending toward full health. A five-time Pro Bowler, Williams hasn't seen the field since Week 7.
Sun, Nov 12, 2017 09:38:00 AM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Redskins LT Trent Williams (questionable, knee) is expected to play Week 10 against the Vikings.

He only got in one limited practice this week, but apparently that was all the Redskins needed to see. Williams is one of the better blind-side protectors in football, so this is obviously a plus for signal-caller Kirk Cousins. T.J. Clemmings had been filling in for Williams at left tackle.
Sun, Nov 12, 2017 08:22:00 AM

Redskins LT Trent Williams (knee) is questionable for Week 10 against the Vikings.

Williams was back at practice Friday for the first time in nearly a month. His return would push T.J. Clemmings to the bench. Shawn Lauvao (stinger) and Spencer Long (knee) are also listed as questionable for the Redskins.
Fri, Nov 10, 2017 02:03:00 PM

Redskins LT Trent Williams (knee) is doubtful for Week 9 against the Seahawks.

Spencer Long (knee) is also doubtful for Sunday's game. Williams' replacement at left tackle, T.J. Clemmings, was a major liability in last week's loss to Dallas. The Redskins' O line needs to get healthy ASAP.
Fri, Nov 3, 2017 02:03:00 PM

Redskins LT Trent Williams is dealing with a bone bruise and ligament damage in his right knee.

Williams has been fighting through both injuries most of the season, but he was forced to sit out Week 8 after aggravating the issue the week before. "I've been dealing with it and it just hasn't gotten any better," Williams said. "It's progressively gotten worse." Williams will need surgery at some point, but the plan now is to rest a couple weeks to see if the bruise improves. That suggests Williams will miss at least this week's game against the Seahawks, and the tackle admits there is a "small chance" he will not be able to finish the season. It is bad news for an offensive line as injured as any in the league.
