Saturday outlook for Chester, Williams still unclear

Trent Williams ailing left foot continues to show signs of improvement, but Coach Mike Shanahan stopped short of saying the left tackle will suit up Saturday in Chicago.Williams, who sustained a bone bruise Thursday against the Bills, practiced with the first team for the majority of team drills Wednesday in Ashburn.The Redskins guards Chris Chester and Maurice Hurt also were held out of the final 15 minutes of practice as they recover from injuries. Chester has a sprained left ankle, while Hurt has an inflamed tendon behind his left knee.Overall, they got more reps than I thought they would today, Shanahan said.Both Williams and Chester insisted as they came off the field that theyll be ready to play against the Bears, the Redskins second preseason game.The ultimate decision, though, rests with Shanahan. And hes not convinced yet.I really dont know, Shanahan said. Thats really a gut decision right before the game. Theyre going to have to improve by tomorrow. They got some got reps, but were no means close to 100-percent. Im hoping the next 48 hours, well know more.

Three starters out of practice for the Redskins

Three starters out of practice for the Redskins

The Redskins were missing three starters at practice on Wednesday as they began preparations to play the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.

Cornerback Bashaud Breeland (ankle), guard Shawn Lauvao (ankle), and wide receiver DeSean Jackson (knee/ankle) all were out of practice. Breeland and Lauvao are expected to miss the Browns game; Jackson seems likely to play but we will have to see how things develop this week before that determination can be made.

WR Josh Doctson (Achilles) and CB Dashaun Phillips (hamstring) also were out on Wednesday.

Doctson, the team’s top draft pick who spend training camp and all of the preseason games on the physically unable to perform list, was a last- minute scratch for the game against the Giants last Sunday.

“He just didn't feel comfortable, couldn't push off the way he wanted to,” said Jay Gruden.

The injury has been hard to deal with from the beginning.

“We're trying different treatments for him to try to get him back in action as soon as possible,” said Gruden. “He'll take it easy this week, next couple of days then see what he can do on Friday. It's a wait and see kind of thing.”

Limited in practice were DL Chris Baker (elbow/tow), LB Trent Murphy (elbow/shoulder), and DL Kendall Reyes.
