Martrell Spaight, Kendall Reyes Ruled Out for Week 2; Trent Williams uncertain

The latest from Redskins Park includes some concerning injury updates.

After entering the season healthy, injuries are starting to become a thing for the Washington Redskins.

Left tackle Trent Williams did not practice Friday because of a glute injury and is questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Dallas Cowboys, coach Jay Gruden announced.

Inside linebacker Martrell Spaight (concussion) and defensive lineman Kendall Reyes (groin) were ruled out for Week 2.

What this means: The Redskins offensive line struggled with penalties in the 38-16 loss to Pittsburgh. That might be the least of any issues should they play Sunday without Williams. Ty Nsekhe would replace him.

The sacrier big picture scenario lies with Spaight, who was placed on injured reserve last season with a concussion. In the short-term, Washington has overall ILB depth with Terence Garvin and rookie Su'a Cravens, though the second round pick also popped up on the injury report (hip flexor). That Spaight suffered yet another concussion is concerning not just for the moment, but his long-term health and future in this sport. 

Reyes out means the newly re-signed Cullen Jenkins will likely be active, Gruden said, with rookie Anthony Lanier another option. The Redskins' run defense was gashed in the opener. Losing Reyes won't make things much worse, but for a unit lacking clear standouts, it's an all hands on deck situation.
