IRVING, Texas – Redskins rookie tackle Trent Williams has yet to play an NFL down that matters, but he has earned DeMarcus Ware’s respect.
“I’ve been watching him ever since the preseason,” Ware said of the fourth overall pick in the draft. “He’s a really good tackle. He’s really quick. He’s really good recovery. He can handle the speed really well too. I’m going to have my hands full.
“I’ll find a way to get there.”
Ravens outside linebacker Terrell Suggs found a way to get there in a preseason game against the Redskins, dominating his matchup with Williams. Suggs recorded a sack and several pressures. Williams also had a false start.
That game might have been foreshadowing of what’s to come when Williams faces another Pro Bowl pass-rusher Sunday night.
That game could also affect the outcome of the Sunday night game. McNabb suffered his sprained ankle that night. He’ll play against the Cowboys, but he isn’t expected to have his normal mobility, which is an issue when getting chased by Ware.
