Trent Williams, Mike Shanahan Expect Redskins Tackle To Play Against Packers

When the Washington Redskins offense takes the field on Sunday against the Green Bay Packers, Trent Williams should be back at left tackle, according to the latest out of Redskins Park.

Williams, the team's first-round selection in the 2010 NFL Draft, hasn't played since injuring his knee and toe during the final drive of the loss to Houston in Week 2. But he returned to full practice this week, and after Friday's session the rookie told reporters again that he expects to play.
