Williams was also called for a false start.

Against the Eagles, Williams was also whistled for a personal foul and afterward spoke of the need to maintain his composure.

Hurt starts on offensive line

Rookie Maurice Hurt started at left guard as part of a reimagined Redskins offensive line.

After the unit allowed 10 sacks against the Buffalo Bills, Will Montgomery shifted back to his natural center position, Hurt replaced him at left guard and Erik Cook returned to his backup role at center and guard.

“It was amazing, man,” said Hurt, a seventh-round pick elevated from the practice squad after Kory Lichtensteiger’s season-ending knee injury. “Obviously, I wished there was a better outcome. But it was a great feeling.”

The group allowed just one sack and six hits on Beck.

Hurt admitted to pregame nervousness.

“But they were good nerves,” he said. “I was excited. I feel like I was prepared.”

Trio of Redskins banged up

Tackle Jammal Brown (groin), defensive end Kedric Golston and receiver Niles Paul (toe) all left the game because of injury.

Golston and Paul both said they were fine.

Brown, who missed the 2009 season after left hip surgery, said the injury was on the same side.

“The hip is going to be sore off and on,” Brown said. “With the groin, it makes it kind of tough.”

Sean Locklear replaced Brown.
