Bidwell Expected To Play For Redskins

Redskins punter Josh Bidwell tested his injured right hip in practice on Thursday and after practice head coach Mike Shanahan said that Bidwell "should be ready to go," according to

Bidwell suffered the injury in pregame warm-ups prior to last Sunday's game against the Rams and placekicker Graham Gano had to handle the punter duties.

Meanwhile, starting left tackle Trent Williams' status remains uncertain as he was limited in Thursday's practice due to a knee injury and toe sprain. He told that his toe injury was the worst of the two.

As for the Eagles, guard Nick Cole did not practice for a second straight day due to knee swelling. It was no surprise today, however, because the Eagles moved their practice indoors on the harder turf surface due to rain. Running back Mike Bell also did not practice due to an illness.

Four other players are on the injury report for the Eagles - tight end Brent Celek (wrist), defensive end Brandon Graham (ankle), tackle Austin Howard (back) and wide receiver Jeremy Maclin (back). All four of those players were full participants. Linebacker Ernie Sims came off of the injury report.
