Despite suffering a deep thigh bruise against the Cowboys and missing Monday’s practice, Redskins tackle Trent Williams said he’ll suit up against Giants.
“I’m going to have to play through some discomfort on Monday night,” he said Wednesday. “But I’ll be on the field.”
Williams was injured when he was accidentally kneed by teammate Kory Lichtensteiger on the third play of last Thursday’s game. Williams got up limping but played the remainder of the game.
The pain got so intense in the days after the injury, he said, it was difficult to sleep and bend over and tie his shoes.
Williams, who’s having his best season since being drafted fourth overall in 2010, has already battled through bone bruises on his foot and knee this season. He has not missed a game.
This latest injury, though, is a bit more annoying to him, he said, because it could have been prevented. Williams doesn’t wear thigh pads in his pants.
“It was very painful,” he said. “I don’t think I’ll make that mistake again.”
