Redskins LT Trent Williams (glute, questionable) did not practice Friday.

He tweaked his glute during Thursday's practice. Missing Friday's session is a concern, but Williams expects to play. "Just didn’t want to keep aggravating it," Williams said. "Wanted to give it at least 48 hours to get it calmed down." Luckily, Washington only has to handle the Cowboys' "pass rush" this weekend.
Sep 16 - 7:56 PM

Redskins LT Trent Williams (knee) appears unlikely to play in Week 17.

Williams is listed as questionable, but Redskins beat writer John Keim says it's "hard to imagine" Williams playing in a meaningless game for Washington. If Williams is inactive, it's also hard to imagine the Redskins subjecting Kirk Cousins to the field much with a backup blind-side tackle.
Jan 1 - 2:28 PM

Trent Williams (knee) is probable for Week 12.

Williams was carted off last week, but told reporters he "definitely" expected to play. Even at less than 100 percent, he shouldn’t struggle against Jason Pierre-Paul and the Giants pass rush. Williams is PFF’s No. 11 tackle through 10 games.

Redskins LT Trent Williams (kneecap) was back at practice Thursday.

He will likely be limited, but the practice put Williams on track to play against the Giants. Williams will be needed against a surging Jason Pierre-Paul.

Redskins LT Trent Williams is day to day with a bruised knee.

It's good news after Williams was carted to the locker room in Sunday's loss. One of the toughest players in the NFL, Williams should be good to go for Week 12.

Redskins LT Trent Williams exited Week 11 against the Panthers with a left knee injury.

Williams came up gimpy after a meaningless fourth-down conversion in the fourth quarter. He was able to limp off the field, but he took the cart into the locker room. He is done for the day. Coach Jay Gruden said after the game the injury was just a kneecap contusion.

Redskins LT Trent Williams (concussion) has been cleared to return for Week 7.

Williams missed Week 6. His return is a huge boost for a Redskins offense that's really been scuffling.
Thu, Oct 22, 2015 08:47:00 PM

Redskins LT Trent Williams (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 6 against the Jets.

The Redskins initially labeled Williams' injury as a spine/neck issue, but coach Jay Gruden admitted Friday that his star left tackle is in the league's concussion protocol. Look for journeyman Ty Nsekhe to get the start at left tackle.
Fri, Oct 16, 2015 01:02:00 PM

Redskins LT Trent Williams (spine) and LG Kory Lichtensteiger (shoulder, finger) are "wait and see" for Week 6.

Coach Jay Gruden says neither player has to practice on Friday to play Sunday. Williams is constantly banged up, but has missed only one game since 2010. He's one of the toughest players in the NFL. Ty Nsekhe would protect Kirk Cousins' blindside if Williams can't go. It's obviously a massive concern.
Thu, Oct 15, 2015 03:35:00 PM

Redskins signed LT Trent Williams to a five-year, $66 million extension.

The deal includes $43.25 million guaranteed. Williams will average $13.2 million annually, placing him ahead of Tyron Smith as the highest-paid left tackle in the league. It's the second big-money extension given out by GM Scot McCloughan after locking up OLB Ryan Kerrigan. The Redskins should have two offensive-line cornerstones to build around with Williams and No. 5 overall pick Brandon Scherff. A three-time Pro Bowler, Williams is signed through 2020, his age-32 season.

Trent Williams and the Redskins are reportedly far apart in contract negotiations.

Coach Jay Gruden said in July the two sides are working on a long-term deal, but at this point it sounds like nothing will get done before the season. Williams is scheduled to make $12.25 million in the final year of his deal. Still just 27, Williams could push Tyron Smith's $22 million guarantee in his next contract.
Thu, Aug 27, 2015 01:17:00 PM

Coach Jay Gruden said the Redskins are working on a long-term deal for LT Trent Williams.

Williams missed OTAs with an ankle injury, but was cleared for the start of training camp. The Redskins have reopened extension talks now that he's healthy. Williams should push for in excess of $20M guaranteed.
Wed, Jul 29, 2015 05:10:00 PM

Coach Jay Gruden expects LT Trent Williams (ankle) to be ready for training camp.

Williams is setback-free in his recovery from a cleanup procedure. There hasn't been any concern about his status for the start of camp. Entering a contract year, the Redskins could extend Williams when healthy.
Wed, Jun 17, 2015 07:24:00 PM

Redskins LT Trent Williams underwent offseason surgery to repair a torn ligament in his ankle.

Williams was experiencing discomfort during the early part of voluntary workouts and decided to get it "cleaned out" by Dr. Robert Anderson. He'll be sidelined until training camp. Williams is down 20 pounds this year, which should help him move better. When healthy, he's an elite left tackle. The Redskins have approached the former No. 4 overall pick about a contract extension.
