Redskins Injury Updates: Trent Williams, Jordan Reed, Chris Baker

By on 11/17/2014 08:51:00 PM

Adding injury to insult, Washington Redskins Pro Bowl left tackle Trent Williams left Sunday's 27-7 loss to Tampa Bay early with a knee injury.  The Redskins suffered a host of other injuries as well.

When Williams' leg was rolled up on during the first quarter of the Redskins NFC matchup with the Bucs, he feared he had suffered a potentially season-ending injury.  Fortunately, Jay Gruden has confirmed that Williams avoided a more serious ACL injury, and is day to day with a sprained MCL and sprained right ankle.  While the injury is not considered serious, it seems likely that the left tackle will be unavailable this upcoming Sunday.

In addition to the injury to Williams, Redskins Insider Tarik El-Bashir reports the following Redskins injuries:

Defensive lineman Chris Baker suffered a bruised sternum but is not expected to miss any time.

Left guard Shawn Lauvao suffered a concussion late in the game.  He will have to undergo the NFL mandated concussion protocol before returning to action.

Tight end Jordan Reed, who missed four games earlier in the season with a hamstring injury, is again struggling with a hamstring strain.  Its unclear whether the two injuries are related.  His status for this weekend's game is undecided.

Outside linebacker Trent Murphy suffered a partial PCL tear, but should be able to play on Sunday.

The Redskins will look to improve upon their 3-7 record with a tough road tilt against the San Francisco 49ers this Sunday.
