Washington will have a new a couple of new quarterbacks under center when the team reports to training camp.

Neither of them will have his best chance at blind-side protection.

According to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, Washington left tackle Trent Williams isn’t expected to report to camp on time, and there’s no indication of when he plans to return.

Williams seemed to have an issue with the team regarding the treatment of an offseason medical concern, though team president Bruce Allen denied it was a problem when Williams didn’t show up for minicamp in June.

Williams had a benign tumor or growth removed from his scalp this offseason. He also has two years left on his current contract, though none of the $27 million remaining (well below what a player of his caliber at his position is making now) is guaranteed.

This situation is obviously a major concern for the team, which traded for Case Keenum and drafted Dwayne Haskins in the first round, after losing Alex Smith to a broken leg last year.

  1. Typical Allen/Snyder mishandling. Too bad our management couldn’t run a minor league team.
    At least they know his name (I hope).

  2. though none of the $27 million remaining (well below what a player of his caliber at his position is making now) is guaranteed.

    Anybody else see a problem with that sentence?
    13.5 million for a left tackle should be MORE than enough, too much.

    It actually is low for a premier left tackle as they are the ones responsible for stopping a defensive end from killing your 35 million dollar franchise quarterback.

  4. I don’t understand how a growth on his head is a football related issue. He certainly had enough money to take care of it himself. The team doctors seem to just do the bare minimum to get a player back on the field these days. He should have gotten a private doctor for that procedure, seeing how it could have been a major problem for him. I think he just threw that in so he didn’t look so greedy when he started to complain about his contract. I’ve been a Redskins fan for over 40 years, and when people tell me he’s still one of the best in the game, I have to laugh. I watch every game, and he gets beat quite often. The back up that we lost to Buffalo played better than Williams did. They need to move him and get something in return while they can

  5. Here’s your chance to unload Duke Johnson, JD. I’d send Duke and Greg Robinson for him to offset the cost.
    You’ll get a top LT with no real commitment for 2 years while you search for our LTOF.

    when you dont know “the backup” by name then you lost all credit…

  7. What’s clear is that he’s received all his guaranteed money and he is GREEDY!
    He simply concocted this grievance against the team doctors in order to get traded or get a new deal with more guaranteed money.
    Players are GREEDY but the media will NEVER portray them as such.

    I do know the backup players name. My point was that a backup played better than him. I guess that nuance escaped you.
