After being held out of Wednesday's practice in accordance with the league protocol for monitoring concussions, left guard Shawn Lauvao returned to the field in a limited capacity on Thursday.
The MRI conducted on the right knee of left tackle Trent Williams confirmed that he sprained the medial collateral ligament, but revealed no further damage, coach Jay Gruden said on Monday.
Redskins coaches believe that quarterback's presence will help create opportunities that may have been missing for other players during his time off.
Five weeks after straining his hamstring in the season opener, tight end Jordan Reed will return for the Redskins and will start. Meanwhile, starting free safety Ryan Clark will play, but starting inside linebacker Perry Riley will not.
Left tackle Trent Williams practiced in a limited capacity, and a handful of other key Redskins players were on Thursday's report.
As the Washington Redskins left the practice field on Wednesday, tight end Jordan Reed lingered a couple of minutes longer to run some extra routes and catch passes from quarterback Kirk Cousins.
Quarterback Robert Griffin III again joined his teammates for pre-practice calisthenics, and drills, but still has yet to receive clearance to practice.
Tight end Jordan Reed is among the players deactivated for Monday night's game, but tackle Trent Williams will go.
