Trent Williams: Tests reveal no tear in knee ligaments

Washington Redskins left tackle Trent Williams said that tests conducted on his left knee indicate there are no torn ligaments, but the second-year pro doesn’t yet know if he will miss playing time.

Williams went down in a heap while blocking on the field goal unit during Graham Gano’s missed 52-yarder in overtime. Williams limped off the field with the help of the team’s trainers.

After the game, Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said that head athletic trainer Larry Hess told him that Williams’s medial collateral ligament (MCL) “didn’t look good,” but the coach didn’t have any further details on the injury at the time.

Monday morning, Williams had his knee wrapped, but said it was “just sore,” and that he was relieved not to have suffered a tear.

Williams last season suffered a sprain to the same knee in a Week 2 loss to Houston (a 30-27 overtime defeat) and missed two games.

Williams has missed two games this season with a high ankle sprain.
