Washington Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan said that nine injured players all are probable for Sunday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks, marking the first time in weeks that Washington won’t find itself without starters at multiple key positions.
Trent Williams (strained MCL) will start at left tackle despite being hobbled all week.
“I feel good. I’m going to give it a go. I can’t complain,” said Williams, who will wear a brace on his knee. ”I fully anticipate [starting]. It’s very important to me. I missed two weeks already and I couldn’t stand seeing my team going to battle without me.”
Meanwhile, wide receiver Santana Moss (hand) is expected to start after four weeks on the sideline.
Other banged up players listed as probable for the Redskins are right tackle Jammal Brown (groin), safeties LaRon Landry (Achilles’ tendon), DeJon Gomes (knee), left guard Maurice Hurt (knee), backup tackle Sean Locklear (ankle), cornerback Josh Wilson (hamstring) and backup linebacker Keyaron Fox (infection).
The only players who are questionable for Sunday’s game are receivers Niles Paul (turf toe) and Donte Stallworth (foot).
“It was encouraging,” Shanahan said. “It’s been a week of healing, but we looked pretty good today, so hopefully there are no setbacks.”
