ATLANTA--The Redskins got out of their game against the Falcons with just one injury and one situation to be monitored.
Running back Matt Jones made a run for no gain with 3:35 left to play. Soon after that there was a press box announcement that Jones was questionable to return to the game with a toe injury. He did not return, although he might not have even if healthy. The Redskins were in passing mode when they got the ball back with 24 second left and when they got it in overtime and Chris Thompson was the running back.
After the game, Jay Gruden said that Jones had a sprained toe and offered no more details.
I saw Jones as he left the locker room. He was wearing street shoes and walking normally. The absence of crutches or a walking boot is a good sign, although it does not necessarily mean that he will be able to go up to MetLife Stadium on Sunday and be able to run and cut on the field turf there.
And Trent Williams may or may not be injured. When reporters tried to interview him in the locker room after the game a team spokesman that Williams was being evaluated for a concussion and could not be interviewed. A short time later the reason for Williams not talking was changed to him feeling ill as he came into the locker room.
In any case, as long as he is not in the concussion protocol program it seems likely that all is well with Williams but we won’t know for sure until Jay Gruden’s news conference.
