A lot went right for the Redskins in the first half of their Monday night game against the Chiefs.
One thing that was less than ideal, however, was when Washington had to watch its star left tackle hobble off midway through the second quarter.
Trent Williams left the primetime affair with a knee injury, and soon after, the team announced that he was questionable to return. The play in which No. 71 hurt himself seemed innocuous — the pass rusher he was fending off barely went after Kirk Cousins, and it didn’t appear as if Williams had to exert much energy on the play — but he began limping as soon as the sequence concluded.
Williams wasn't the only starter to depart the contest, either. Rob Kelley was also deemed questionable with an ankle ailment.
With Williams out, TJ Clemmings, who was waived at the end of the preseason, has taken over his spot on the line. That obviously will impact Jay Gruden’s offense in an evening where they were moving along nicely prior to the injury.
UPDATE - 9:33 P.M.
Deep breath, everyone. Williams has re-entered the game, proving for the umpteenth time that he's a very tough guy.
