The Redskins may have lost in overtime to Dallas Sunday, but they caught two breaks on the injury front Monday.

Per coach Mike Shanahan, left tackle Trent Williams MCL injury was diagnosed as a Grade 1 (mild) strain after an MRI exam, and cornerback Josh Wilson has a Grade 1 (mild) hamstring injury.

Both players were unable to finish the game.

Williams was injured on field goal protection in overtime.

Well just have to evaluate it as the week goes along, Shanahan said. Hes still quite sore at this time.

First-degree, normally, most people play. It didnt look very good when I looked at the tape. But after the MRI came back, it was a plus. So theres a chance.
