Trent Williams Injury: Redskins Tackle Has Bone Bruise, According To Report

The knee injury that Washington Redskins right tackle Trent Williams suffered in Sunday's loss to the Cincinnati Bengals is reportedly just a bone bruise according to a report.

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.

The Redskins, looking to bounce back from consecutive losses, face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday Sept. 30 at 4:25 p.m. ET.

Trent Williams Injures Right Knee, Leaves Game Vs. Bengals

A slow start for the Washington Redskins against the Cincinnati Bengals got worse when offensive tackle Trent Williams appeared to hurt his right knee. His return is questionable.

Williams injured his knee when attempting to plant his foot to make a block. It buckled in the turf, leaving him in serious pain.

He was tended to by trainers and helped off the field. After being looked at on the trainers table, he has started to test it out by walking around on the sideline, which is obviously a good sign.

In the meantime, he will be replaced by Jordan Black. who is making his first appearance in a game since playing for the Jacksonville Jaguars on Jan. 2, 2011.
