The Redskins' top pick from the 2010 draft, OLT Trent Williams, left the Week Two game against the Texans after suffering a knee injury. ESPN-980's Chris Russell reported the injury was a sprained knee.

A week after having to block Cowboys OLB DeMarcus Ware, Williams had to face Texans DE Mario Williams in Week Two. Trent Williams left the game late with the injury following a sack of QB Donovan McNabb by Mario Williams.

The way we see it

Williams, the No. 4 pick in the 2010 draft, was doing a respectable job against Mario Williams after holding his own against Ware in Week One. If Williams is out for an extended period of time, it's a big blow for the Redskins. Stephon Heyer, a four-year veteran, replaced Williams and was called for a holding penalty.
