Left tackle Trent Williams and linebacker London Fletcher did not participate in practice Wednesday, but both are expected to play when the team takes the field Monday night against the New York Giants.
Williams suffered a deep bone bruise when he was kneed by teammate Kory Lichtensteiger in his left thigh on Thanksgiving against the Dallas Cowboys, but was able to finish the game. However, Williams said the injury got more painful as the week went on. He says he'll be able to play in the team's next game, but that he will wear thigh padding to prevent further injury.
Fletcher aggravated a sprained ankle, and although he's listed as questionable, he's likely to play. He had previously sprained the ankle the week before against the Philadelphia Eagles, yet was able to play Thursday. Besides, the 37-year-old hasn't missed a game yet in his 15-year NFL career, having played in 235 straight games since entering the league in 1998.
