Trent Williams Injury Update: Washington Redskins' LT Practices On Wednesday

Washington Redskins left tackle Trent Williams, who's missed each of Washington's last two games with a high-ankle sprain, practiced in a limited capacity on Wednesday. According to ESPN 980, Williams pegged his health at 70 percent and the two-year veteran "didn't sound optimistic" about his chances of suiting up Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers. SB Nation DC Redskins editor Daniel Shiferaw quotes Williams as saying, "I can't watch [practice] no more."

If there's a team that desperately needs protection on its quarterback's blind side, it's Washington, whose opponents have sacked John Beck 13 times in the two games Williams missed. The 10 sacks--and yes, it's 10, not nine, as initially scored--they allowed against the Buffalo Bills last Sunday is a franchise-worst. Though Williams could not have prevented all of those sacks, he certainly would have helped plug some holes in the Redskins' porous offensive line.

Washington made Williams the No. 4 overall selection in the 2010 NFL Draft.
