LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — Pro Bowl left tackle Trent Williams is inactive for the Washington Redskins against the New York Giants because of an injured right knee.
The Thanksgiving night game is the third time in the past five weeks that Williams has been sidelined by the knee. His absence means Washington is missing three-fifths of its starting offensive line, because left guard Shawn Lauvao and center Spencer Long went on injured reserve this week.

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — Tight end Jordan Reed, defensive lineman Terrell McClain, center Chase Roullier and safety Montae Nicholson will miss the Washington Redskins' game against the New York Giants.

Carson Wentz, Eagles leave Redskins grasping
PHILADELPHIA Redskins linebacker Zach Brown went to blitz off the edge on a third-and-goal against the Philadelphia Eagles and saw running back Corey Clement escape into the flat. Brown tried to change directions, but by then, it was too late.
Despite being dragged down by two Redskins defenders, Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz delivered the perfect throw and Clement came down with the touchdown, right over Brown. At that point in the third quarter, the score put the Eagles up by two touchdowns.
Redskins could rely on young defensive backs against Eagles
ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — Quinton Dunbar takes pride in the way Washington Redskins defensive backs coach Torrian Gray makes every member of the secondary prepare as though he's starting.
"When you get in, you are expected to play like a starter," Dunbar said.
That approach has come in handy this season. Already 2015 All-Pro Josh Norman, fellow cornerback Bashaud Breeland and safety Stefan McClure have gone down with injuries, and second-year safety Su'a Cravens left the team to contemplate retirement.

"They're trying to fight through it right now," coach Jay Gruden said.
Banged-up Redskins not getting Cravens back this season
Amid injuries to more than a quarter of their starters, the Washington Redskins won't have Su'a Cravens for the rest of the season after putting the 22-year-old safety on the reserve/left squad list.
