Starting left tackle Trent Williams missed Wednesday’s practice with a foot contusion, but said that he hopes to play on Sunday when the Redskins host the Kansas City Chiefs.
Williams had been in a walking boot earlier this week, but no longer needs it.
“Got a bone bruise. It’s fine though.” Williams told reporters Wednesday afternoon.
Starting safeties Brandon Meriweather and Reed Doughty, and rookie tight end Jordan Reed also missed practice on Wednesday.
Meriweather was sidelined by a sternum contusion. Doughty suffered a concussion in Sunday’s game but has passed his tests since then and could have gone through positional drills on Wednesday, but the Redskins opted to hold him out as a precaution.
Meanwhile, Reed, who suffered a concussion two weeks ago and has since missed two games, watched practice from the sideline and has yet to receive clearance.
Inside linebacker London Fletcher (ankle), fullback Darrel Young (hamstring) and cornerback DeAngelo Hall (hip/back) were all limited in practice.
