Tackle Trent Williams Has a Bone Bruise in His Knee

An MRI conducted on tackle Trent Williams’ right knee revealed that he has a bone bruise, and not a season-threatening injury, according to a source familiar with the results of the test. It’s not yet known how much time Williams will miss, Mike Jones and Mark Maske of the Washington Post report.

Williams, charged with protecting quarterback Robert Griffin III’s blind side, injured his knee on the second play of Sunday’s game, returned briefly in the second quarter and played three snaps in the third quarter before leaving the game for good.

He had an MRI conducted on his knee Monday morning.

“He should be OK,” said the source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to speak for the Redskins. “Not serious. He has a bone bruise.”
