In his news conference Monday afternoon, Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan offered good news on the health of left tackle Trent Williams, who left Sunday's loss against the Dallas Cowboys after suffering an injury to his left knee. Tests conducted on Williams' knee showed no damage, as noted previously in this StoryStream, but Shanahan received word Monday that Williams' injury is less severe than initially anticipated.
Williams has a grade-one MCL injury in his left knee, which Shanahan called "a good sign." According to the Redskins' official Twitter account, the team will "evaluate his status" leading up to Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks, and there's a chance he could take the field without missing any time due to the injury.
Williams, the No. 4 overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, anchors the Redskins' offensive line.
