Redskins left tackle Trent Williams is listed as day-to-day after getting a bone bruise in Sundays game against the Bengals. Williams got the injury in the first half. He returned later, but Jordan Black got a majority of the reps at left tackle.

Mark Maske has the full report including a few other injury updates right here. Williams had the MRI done earlier today and it revealed no damage past what is being called, as stated above, a bone bruise.

Hopefully he will be able to play this coming Sunday against the Buccaneers. His backup, Jordan Black, was horrendous. He had a hard time blocking the Bengals defensive ends and did a pretty poor job of protecting Robert Griffin III's blind side. Williams is a much better option at left tackle. The Redskins will likely take it easy on him in practice this week to make sure that he is good to go against the Buccaneers.

Whomever gets the start at left tackle will be taking on Michael Bennett. Bennett is rough and tough defensive end that gives fits to most left tackles in the NFL. Bennett has seven tackles including three sacks and two forced fumbles. If Jordan Black is at left tackle this week, Kyle Shanahan will want to call plays that moves Griffin around the pocket and adds protection to the left side.
