Eagles Vs. Redskins: Trent Williams Injury Update, Tackle Suffers High Ankle Sprain

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.

Via the Examiner’s John Keim:

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.
