Trent Williams blocks during training camp

LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. – The Redskins offensive line is unlikely to be at full-strength Sunday vs. San Francisco.

Tackle Ty Nsekhe will not play, as he continues to recover from core muscle surgery. Pro Bowl left tackle Trent Williams is listed as questionable for the game with a knee injury. Even after the bye week, Williams’ status will likely be determined during pregame warm-ups.

“I have the trust and confidence that if Trent says he can go, he’ll be fine,” Washington head coach Jay Gruden said Friday. “So he’s played enough football here, he knows our system, he’s very smart, obviously very athletic. But at the end of the day, it’s sore. If it is sore, too sore for him to be effective, then we’ll make that determination. That’ll be on him and the trainer, like I said. But if he feels like he can give it a valiant effort, I believe he’ll be effective.”

Redskins running back Rob Kelley (ankle) and safety Deshazor Everett (hamstring) are listed as doubtful. Pro Bowl cornerback Josh Norman will not play as he recovers from a fractured rib.
