Redskins left tackle Trent Williams did not practice for a second straight day and was still walking with a slight limp. He’ll likely need to show major improvement over the next few days to play at Tampa Bay on Sunday.

Corner Cedric Griffin (hamstring) also did not practice. Receiver Pierre Garcon (foot), safety Brandon Meriweather (knee), running back Evan Royster (knee) and receiver Brandon Banks (hip) were limited. Banks was a new addition to the injury report.

Coach Mike Shanahan said Garcon is “getting better, I can see that. But until he’s able to go it’s just getting better.”

Shanahan said he doesn’t have any rules regarding whether a player can play in a game Sunday if he doesn’t practice during the week.

“A lot depends on the experience of the guy,” Shanahan said, “how he’s played in the past, how he’s handled different situations, veterans, rookies, their experience. Each one is different. I don’t have one set rule for Wednesday, Thursday, Friday. My experience is if you don’t get practice in during the week it’s hard to play well.”
