Trent Williams Injury: MRI Negative On Redskins' Left Tackle

Not only did the Washington Redskins lose their home opener to the Cincinnati Bengals, 38-31, on Sunday, but they were hit with a number of injuries as well. Cornerback Cedric Griffin, left tackle Trent Williams and running backs Evan Royster and Roy Helu all suffered injuries in the loss.

When speaking to the media on Monday, head coach Mike Shanahan provided some insight on the extent of the injuries. Shanahan confirmed that Williams had suffered a bone bruise on his right knee. The left tackle was injured early in the first quarter and tried to return multiple times before finally staying out of the game in the third quarter.

Griffin's injury was to his hamstring, Royster strained his patella tendon and Helu was battling a nagging turf toe injury, all three of which were classified as day-to-day issues.

The Redskins will try to rebound from consecutive losses when they face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday Sept. 30 at 4:25 p.m. ET.
