Trent Williams Injury: Washington Redskins' Offensive Lineman Limps Off With Knee Injury

The Washington Redskins could have ended this game against the Dallas Cowboys with one kick. Instead, Graham Gano pushed a 52-yard field goal wide right, and offensive lineman Trent Williams suffered a potentially serious injury. Williams had his right knee buckle while blocking for the kick and stayed on the ground for several minutes before limping off.

It looked like Williams had his leg caught underneath him trying to block Jay Ratliff. The good news is he limped off, but he certainly was walking gingerly as he came to the sidelines. Undrafted rookie Willie Smith would replace Williams if the Redskins get the ball back and Williams cannot return to the game.
