RICHMOND — Left tackle Trent Williams returned to practice after sitting out Friday with a bruised shin, while wide receiver DeSean Jackson got Saturday off to allow some soreness in his legs to subside.

Williams suffered the injury during Thursday’s practice when he got kicked while tangling with a defender. Williams said the kick left a dent in his shin. He practiced fully on Saturday, but did appear to limp late in the practice session.

Coach Jay Gruden said Jackson — Washington’s starting wide receiver opposite Pierre Garcon — does not have a serious injury.

“He just had a little soreness in his legs,” Gruden said. “Just trying to keep him fresh. He’s been running a lot.”

Backup linebacker Rob Jackson left Saturday’s practice with a shoulder injury. Jackson had his right shoulder wrapped in ice, but Gruden thought that after Sunday, a scheduled day off, Jackson would likely be able to return to action on Monday.

Wide receiver Aldrick Robinson appeared to be banged up following a play in the end zone, but Gruden said he didn’t believe that injury was serious either.

The Redskins have yet to make a roster move in relation to the season-ending injury of wide receiver Jerry Rice Jr., who needs surgery to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder. Redskins general manager Bruce Allen said that Washington would host some players for workouts on Sunday and then make a signing.
