ASHBURN, Va. (CBSDC) — The Washington Redskins held their second to last open practice today as they prepare for their second preseason game Saturday against the Chicago Bears. Tomorrow will be their last open practice of the season and it starts at 1pm.
Trent Williams (left foot bone bruise) didn’t practice today, but did go through walk-through this morning and is still day-to-day.
“I feel a lot better,” Williams said.
Williams also said if Redskins Head Coach Mike Shanahan let’s him go, he’ll practice with the team tomorrow.
Roy Helu (Achilles tendinitis) also didn’t practice, Shanahan says “hopefully it’s not too serious” and added that he’s had it before. Chris Neild hurt his knee during practice and will get an MRI. London Fletcher did drill work, but was given team work off today. Chris Chester didn’t practice today, but hopes to practice fully this week and play Saturday. Anthony Armstrong practiced, but still wore the yellow (no contact) jersey. Jammal Brown (hip) continues to have no timetable on his return.
“I really don’t know,” Shanahan said on if Brown will play for them this season and added that they will be patient with him.
One offensive lineman who is preparing to go this season, even if he misses the preseason, is Kory Lichtensteiger (knee scope).
“I’m just hoping to get back and get some good hard practices before I get thrown into a game situation,” Lichtensteiger said. “If I can do that, I think I’ll be alright.”
