Shoulder injury limits Trent Williams
Redskins offensive tackle Trent Williams, the fourth overall pick in the 2010 draft, played only sparingly in Sunday's 31-7 loss to the New York Giants because of a shoulder problem suffered in an unexplained accident at his home during the week.
Williams, who was limited in practice much of the week, was replaced in the starting lineup by Stephon Heyer. Coach Mike Shanahan initially alternated Heyer and Williams with each offensive series, but by the second half, Williams was benched altogether and Heyer played the rest of the game.
"They could kind of tell I was favoring it," Williams said.
Williams missed two games with a knee problem in September and October. Sunday marked the first time he had played but not started. He said the injury made it particularly difficult to block.
"It's a shoulder," Williams said. "What I do, that's what I use every play. It restricted me a little bit."
