Left tackle Trent Williams may have dislocated his right kneecap late in Washington’s 45-14 loss to the New York Giants and will have an MRI exam conducted on his knee so doctors can learn the full extent of the injury.

Redskins Coach Jay Gruden announced following the game that Williams had suffered a knee strain. Williams told reporters in the locker room shortly after that doctors tested him and told him that they didn’t believe he had any ligament damage, but that an MRI exam would be needed.

Williams said he believed he suffered the injury while trying to help cover one of Washington’s interceptions.

Tom Compton took over for Williams, playing roughly the second half of the fourth quarter.

Meanwhile, defensive end Jarvis Jenkins left the game with a rib contusion. He left during the first half after suffering the injury, and had X-rays on his left ribs. The X-rays showed no fractures and Jenkins tried to play through the pain in the second half. But eventually, it became hard to breathe, and he left the game for good.

Jenkins said he believed that, given the 11-day layoff Washington has before its next game, he should be fine.

Tight end Niles Paul left the game with a concussion after getting hit in the head on both sides while making a catch up the seam. The tight end lay on the ground for several moments before being helped up and woozily walking off the field. After being tested for a concussion, Paul was ruled out.
