The Redskins are going into this one undermanned.
Washington is still keeping their playoff hopes alive, narrowly clinging on to their dreams of making the NFC Playoffs in a Wild Card spot. However, a loss tonight to the division rival Giants could derail all of those dreams.
With the Thanksgiving matchup ready to go, the Redskins announced their final list of inactives before the game, and one of their biggest stars on offense will not be playing.

The team announced that star offensive tackle Trent Williams will not be able to play tonight, as he continues to recover from a knee injury. He joins top offensive weapon Jordan Reed on the inactive list for Washington.
Fortunately, they will have rookie RB Sam Perine, who is expected to carry the bulk of the load without Chris Thompson and Rob Kelley in the backfield.
Always look to the bright side, folks.
