ASHBURN, Va. (AP) - Washington Redskins running back Matt Jones was held out of practice Wednesday with a knee injury.

Coach Jay Gruden says Jones reported soreness while moving laterally and pain when cutting. It’s unclear how the injury will affect Jones’ availability for the Redskins’ game Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals in London.

If Jones is unable to play, Gruden considers undrafted rookie Robert Kelley his best option to start with Chris Thompson continuing his role as the third-down back. Jones declined comment.

Left tackle Trent Williams (knee), tight end Jordan Reed (concussion), receivers DeSean Jackson (hamstring/shoulder) and Jamison Crowder (groin), guard Brandon Scherff (shoulder), center Spencer Long (chest), tight end Vernon Davis (groin) and cornerbacks Josh Norman (concussion) and Bashaud Breeland (ankle) all had limited participation in practice, according to Gruden.
