Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan told the media today that LT Trent Williams and ILB London Fletcher were both limited in practice. The troubling part of Shanahan's statement was that he said both had 'significant' injuries but they would 'keep their fingers crossed' for Monday night. Apparently, Williams is suffering from a bruised thigh and Fletcher from a sore ankle.
I for one do not want to see Fletcher's record of consecutives games played broken. However, of much larger concern, is the possiblility of missing Trent Williams. This is the NY Giants dammit. We need Williams badly. Williams will more than likely be lined up to block Jason Pierre Paul. Paul has 6.5 sacks on the season for New York.
The Redskins are sitting at 5-6 and need to win Monday night, no question about it. At this point, Shanahan made no commitments for Monday night and both players status is uncertain.
