A few key Redskins have injuries to keep an eye on but coach Jay Gruden seems confident that they will be available to play against the Giants on Sunday.
The injury that looked the worst when it happened was the knee injury suffered by left tackle Trent Williams in the fourth quarter. He spent a few minutes down on the field before walking slowly to the sideline and then getting carted into the locker room.
Gruden said that Williams has a patella contusion and he is day to day. Although he might miss some practice time this week it seems likely he will play on Sunday.
Running back Alfred Morris left yesterday’s game after carrying the ball just twice after aggravating a rib injury he suffered against the Saints. “I think he’s going to be OK based on what I’m hearing,” said Gruden.
Tight end Jordan Reed suffered an MCL sprain but he returned to the game.
Reserve cornerback Deshazor has a hamstring strain, we should get updated on his status on Wednesday. Third-down running back Chris Thompson left the game to be evaluated under the NFL’s concussion protocol and it was determined that he did not suffer from a concussion.
