Quick Hits: Trent Williams, London Fletcher miss practice, Rex Grossman out of the hospital

Coach Mike Shanahan said that starting left tackle Trent Williams (ankle) and linebacker London Fletcher (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday.

Meanwhile, safety Oshiomogho Atogwe (knee), receiver Donte Stallworth (hamstring) and cornerback Byron Westbrook (hamstring) all were limited in practice.

Rex Grossman (pneumonia) was released from the hospital around noon, and is expected to come to Redskins Park to watch some game film later today.

Shanahan said tight end Chris Cooley will rest his knee and see if it responds to rehab. The coach said he didn’t know yet if the tight end will need surgery.

Shanahan said of Cooley and teammates who are on IR “hoping to have them all back (next year) and hoping they can be effective.”

Shanahan said newly signed tight end Dominique Byrd was “the best catching tight end out there.” The coach likes center/guard Jonathan Compas’s versatility.

Safety Kareem Moore (knee) went through his first practice of the season and ran with the scout team. The team has 21 days to decide whether to activate him from the PUP list.
