Big left tackle Trent Williams left Sunday’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles with an ankle injury, limping to the locker room in the first half. Williams would briefly re-enter the game but was in too much pain to continue and be effective.
After the game, Williams was seen with a walking boot on his right foot. It has been reported that Williams sustained a high ankle sprain – an injury that can persist for multiple weeks. It’s particularly significant for Williams, who uses his right foot planting on the outside as a left tackle. It’s likely that the tackle will miss a couple weeks.
In addition to Williams, the Redskins offensive line also lost center Kory Lichtensteiger for the season with a torn ACL injury. His fellow lineman, Williams, had some sharp comments about the play where Lichtensteiger suffered the injury.
It was a dirty play. The refs missed it.
As for Williams himself, it’s likely he will be on the sidelines for a few weeks nursing his own high ankle injury. Jammal Brown could move from the right tackle spot over to the left side to fill in.
