Trent Williams Injury Update: Washington Redskins' Lineman Has High Ankle Sprain, Mike Shanahan Confirms

Trent Williams, the Washington Redskins' starting left tackle, did indeed suffer a high ankle sprain injury in the Washington Redskins' 20-13 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. Coach Mike Shanahan confirmed the news in his Monday press conference, according to Redskins PR.

It remains unclear just how long Williams will be sidelined with the injury. Shanahan said that high ankle sprains tend to take "usually a couple of weeks." This isn't the first time Williams has been hurt during his brief NFL career. He suffered knee and toe injuries early in 2010.

Shanahan also confirmed that guard Kory Lichtensteiger will miss the rest of the season with a torn ACL and MCL, an injury he suffered on a hit after the play ended. He added that moving right tackle Jammal Brown to the left side to replace Williams is something the Redskins may consider.
