Redskins Injury Report: Trent Williams Awaiting MRI

The Washington Redskins' starting left tackle Trent Williams will have an MRI Monday after hurting his right knee early in the team's loss to the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday.

Williams, the team's most prominent offensive lineman, re-entered the game after hurting his knee on the team's first offensive series, but left again in the second half. Williams reported that while he was fine moving to his left, he had trouble going to the right, and that he left the game for "precautionary reasons." It's unclear how serious the injury is to the man responsible for protecting Robert Griffin III, although Williams clearly felt comfortable allowing himself to continue playing at least temporarily in the game Sunday.

Evan Royster, who seemed like a candidate for a starting tailback position in training camp, sprained his knee in the fourth quarter and did not return. He only has five carries on the season behind Albert Morris.

A pair of Redskins backup cornerbacks also left the game Sunday, both with hurt hamstrings: Cedric Griffin is listed as a backup to DeAngelo Hall, while Crezdon Butler is a third-stringer.
