Redskins Injury Update: Jordan Reed, Trent Williams, Niles Paul

By on 10/01/2014 11:30:00 AM

Not a whole lot of good news came out of the Washington Redskins loss to the New York Giants last Thursday night, but with the long rest following the short week, Jordan Reed, Trent Williams and Niles Paul are all optimistic they will be ready to go against the Seattle Seahawks on Monday night.

Tight end Jordan Reed was finally able to get back on the practice field on Tuesday, the first time since straining his hamstring in week one against the Houston Texans reports The Washington Times. Reed has been injury prone in his short career and his return would be a boost to the Redskins offense and current starting quarterback Kirk Cousins.

Left tackle Trent Williams said his right kneecap was "a little bit dislocated" but believes he should be able to play come Monday, even though he was absent from Tuesday's practice according to The Washington Times. “[I’ll] let it calm down a little bit,” Williams said. “Probably get re-evaluated before the game, leave it up to Coach (Gruden). Hopefully, I can be out there.”

Tight end Niles Paul took a big shot Thursday against the Giants, sustaining a concussion and laid motionless on the field momentarily. He also did not participate in practice Tuesday, but has passed each stage on the concussion protocol to date and believes he will be available against the Seahawks. 

With still five days until game day, there is still time for improvement. Come Sunday into Monday we should have a better idea of their availability for the game.
