When speaking to the media on Monday, head coach Mike Shanahan provided some insight on the extent of the injuries. Shanahan confirmed that Williams had suffered a bone bruise on his right knee. The left tackle was injured early in the first quarter and tried to return multiple times before finally staying out of the game in the third quarter.
Griffin's injury was to his hamstring, Royster strained his patella tendon and Helu was battling a nagging turf toe injury, all three of which were classified as day-to-day issues.
The Redskins will try to rebound from consecutive losses when they face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday Sept. 30 at 4:25 p.m. ET.
Mike Jones, the Redskins' beat writer for The Washington Post, tweeted that:
"Source says Trent Williams has only a bone bruise in his right knee."
Williams was injured on the second offensive play in the Redskins' 38-31 loss to the Bengals. He was blocking a defender when he went to the ground and had to be attended to by trainers before limping off the field. The offensive lineman tried to return to the game multiple times, but continued to have trouble and eventually stayed out of the game in the third quarter.

Williams was injured on the second play of the Redskins' 38-31 loss on Sunday to the Cincinnati Bengals. Williams was engaged with a defender when he fell to the field. After being attended to by trainers, Williams limped off the field and went to the locker room after testing his knee. Jordan Black replaced Williams when he left the game. Williams returned to the game in the second quarter.
Though he was seen walking through the locker room with a limp, Williams said after the game that he was not concerned that the knee injury would be serious. Williams also said he felt his knee gave out on the play which the injury occurred.
Williams injured his right knee when his leg buckled in the turf while trying to make a block. He comes back into the game, but is far from 100 percent as he still has a limp when walking. Fans will want to see how it holds up on the team's final few drives of the half.
