Williams Out Couple Weeks, Cooley Uncertain

Posted Oct 17, 2011

Left tackle Trent Williams and tight end Chris Cooley are expected to miss at least the next two games as they rehab injuries suffered in Sunday's game vs. Philadelphia.


Left tackle Trent Williams and tight end Chris Cooley are expected to miss at least the next two games as they rehab injuries suffered in last Sunday’s game vs. Philadelphia.

Williams suffered a high ankle sprain that could sideline him for “a couple weeks,” head coach Mike Shanahan said.

“I don’t think you ever know with an ankle sprain, but a high ankle sprain is usually a couple weeks,” he added.

With Williams out, Shanahan and Redskins coaches have some options in terms of his replacement.

The team could move right tackle Jammal Brown to left tackle, a position where he won two Pro Bowl berths while with the New Orleans Saints from 2005-09.

Then Sean Locklear could line up at right tackle, where he has played the bulk of his career.

Brown said on Monday that he has not taken left tackle reps in practice since 2010. Locklear has received the bulk of backup reps behind Williams at left tackle this year.

Meantime, Cooley is scheduled to have surgery on his fractured index finger on Wednesday, Shanahan said.

After the surgery, Shanahan said he wanted to further evaluate Cooley’s lingering knee injury.

Cooley was listed as questionable for the Eagles game after he had the knee drained of excess fluid. He was limited in practice in the days leading up to the game, but the knee continued to swell up, Shanahan said.

“We need to know what the doctors think with the finger, with the knee, and exactly where he’ll be at,” Shanahan said. “We’ll listen to opinions over the next few days, especially after the surgery, to make a decision for sure.”
