Redskins’ left tackle Trent Williams skipped minicamp in June and is poised to hold out from training camp, Kevin Patra of NFL.com reports.
NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo and NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday on Inside Training Camp Live that the expectation at this point is that Williams will not report with teammates to training camp on Wednesday, per multiple sources informed of the situation.
The issues with Williams goes back to a health scare suffered earlier this spring. Williams had a growth on his head that doctors had to remove. Coach Jay Gruden indicated when the left tackle skipped mandatory minicamp that Williams was upset that the team physicians didn’t catch the growth sooner.
Rapoport also reported last month that in light of everything, Williams would also like his contract reworked.
At this stage, the issues appear to be a little bit of all of the above. Garafolo noted that Williams’ plans appear open-ended and it could take a while before the left tackle reports to the Redskins.
