Left tackle Trent Williams did not participate in the Washington Redskins’ practice Wednesday. Williams suffered a bone bruise on his right knee during last Sunday’s loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. The Redskins have listed his status as day to day. It’s not clear if Williams will be able to play Sunday in Tampa against the Buccaneers. Jordan Black replaced Williams during last Sunday’s game.
According to Coach Mike Shanahan, wide receiver Pierre Garcon was a limited participant in Wednesday’s practice. Garcon has missed two games because of a foot injury.
Garcon said he felt better but he did not know yet if he will be able to play in Tampa.
Safety Brandon Meriweather participated in Wednesday’s practice on a limited basis, Shanahan said. Meriweather has missed all three games since aggravating a knee injury.
According to Shanahan, cornerback Cedric Griffin did not practice due to a hamstring injury.
Running back Evan Royster was limited by a knee injury.
Wide receiver Leonard Hankerson has had an ailing back but practiced fully, Shanahan said.
Shanahan said the Redskins signed Ryan Grant because he was atop the team’s list of available running backs. The Redskins paced running back Roy Helu on the injured reserve list because of turf toe Wednesday.
The Redskins spoke to Tim Hightower, Shanahan said. But the veteran running back, who was released by the Redskins before the season, re-injured his knee during his rehab and will undergo arthroscopic surgery, according to Shanahan.
Shanahan said it will be nice to have the regular officials back if they return this weekend. He said the $25,000 fine given to his son, offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, for a run-in with the replacement officials last Sunday will teach him a lesson.
