Cowboys vs Redskins Injury Report: Trent Williams questionable after injury in practice

The Redskins went into Week 1's Monday Night Football game against the Pittsburgh Steelers pretty healthy, and left without any "significant" injuries. Now they head into their first division game of the season on a short week and host the Dallas Cowboys. The Redskins are dealing with several players dealing with injuries, and have already ruled two players out for the game.

DE Kendall Reyes was dealing with a groin injury last week, but was still able to play 26% of the defensive snaps. He has been ruled out vs the Cowboys after only being a limited participant in practice one day this week. The other player ruled out this week is ILB Martrell Spaight who has been experiencing concussion sypmtoms including dizzyness this week. This is concerning because Spaight missed almost the entire year due to concussions last season.

The big name popping up on the injury list late in the week is starting LT Trent Williams who is dealing with a glute injury suffered in practice on Thursday. He didn't practice today, and Coach Gruden didn't give much indication on his status. Williams, for what it's worth, seems confident that he will play vs the Cowboys.

Another big name on the list on the other side of the ball is DE Chris Baker who has been limited all week with rib and elbow injuries. Baker is easily the best player on the defensive line this season, and if he is limited or misses the game, the depth will be tested again. Cullen Jenkins was signed after last week's loss to bolster the depth, and should be active this week.

There were two other players listed as questionable, and both were rookies who made their NFL debuts last week. Josh Doctson is still listed with the Achilles injury that caused him to miss almost the entire offseason. LB/S Su'a Cravens has looked good so far, but was added to the injury report today with a hip flexor.

The big name on the Cowboys list is obviously QB Tony Romo, who broke a bone in his back after 3 plays during the preseason. He is being replaced by 4th round rookie Dak Prescott. Dallas also has issues along their defensive line)not including their multiple suspensions on defense). CB Orlando Scandrick also showed up on the report on Thursday with a hamstring injury, but practiced fully today. Dallas enters the game with a full week, and seems to be the healthier team for now
