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.
Jun 17 - 7:24 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.

GM Scot McCloughan says the Redskins have "reached out" to contract-year LT Trent Williams.

"We’re going to take care of our own," McCloughan said. "It’s very important." Two months shy of his 27th birthday, Williams is one of the league's best left tackles. If talks stall, Williams could be slapped with the franchise tag next offseason.

The Redskins have yet to open talks with contract-year LT Trent Williams.

Drafted prior to the new CBA, Williams has a $13.7M cap hit in the final year of his rookie deal. He's already one of the highest paid offensive linemen in the league, and could push for in excess of $20M guaranteed. 26-year-old Williams has three Pro Bowls in his first five seasons. He was PFF's No. 12 left tackle in 2014.
Apr 11 - 4:34 PM

Redskins LT Trent Williams is a candidate for an extension.

Williams is signed through 2015, but will count $13.7 million against the cap. He graded out as a top-15 left tackle by Pro Football Focus this year despite playing through multiple injuries. A three-time Pro Bowler, Williams was drafted prior to the new CBA and is already one of the highest paid offensive linemen in the league. The Redskins could lower his cap hit by extending him this offseason.
Jan 17 - 4:14 PM

Redskins LT Trent Williams suffered a high-ankle sprain in Sunday's loss.

Williams has the whole offseason to heal, but it's a fitting coda to a season where he battled through all manner of injuries. True to form, Williams still missed only one game, and was dominant when on the field. Going on 27, Williams will make $10.25 million in the final year of his rookie contract next season.

Redskins LT Trent Williams (shoulder) will be a game-time decision for Week 17.

Williams re-injured his shoulder in Saturday's win over the Eagles. He's unlikely to get in much practice time, but has a chance to play this week. Washington promoted OL Rishaw Johnson to provide depth.

Redskins LT Trent Williams (shoulder) is active for Saturday's Week 16 game against the Eagles.

Williams was expected to play after practicing on a limited basis. His presence is an upgrade for Robert Griffin III and an offensive line that allowed seven sacks last week. The Redskins inactives are RB Roy Helu, LB Kennan Robinson, DE Jason Hatcher, WR Leonard Hankerson, LB Gabe Miller, CB Kenny Okoro, and OG Josh LeRibeus.

Redskins LT Trent Williams (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Week 16.

Williams was limited in practice the last two days, putting him on track to play against the Eagles. His return would be an upgrade for Robert Griffin III after Washington allowed seven sacks last week.

Redskins LT Trent Williams left Sunday's Week 15 game against the Giants with a shoulder injury.

His return is questionable. Tom Compton will move over to the left side, with Tyler Polumbus taking over at right tackle.

Redskins LT Trent Williams (ankle, MCL) is expected to return for Week 13.

It's a relief for the Redskins, as their protection of Robert Griffin III was simply abysmal in Week 12. Williams is among the best blindside protectors in the game, but it does remain to be seen how effective he'll be playing through two injuries. Either way, things can't go any worse for the Redskins than they did against the 49ers.

Speaking Monday, Redskins coach Jay Gruden confirmed LT Trent Williams has MCL and ankle sprains.

Grudes called Williams "day to day," but we'd consider him more week to week. Williams has shown a remarkable ability to play through pain during his five years in the NFL, but we'd expect him to miss at least one game, and likely more. It's a devastating blow for the reeling Redskins, as Williams is one of their only legit stars. Rookie Morgan Moses slid in on Robert Griffin III's blindside Sunday, and should remain there for however long Williams is sidelined.

The initial diagnosis on Redskins LT Trent Williams is a sprained MCL in his right knee and a sprained ankle.

Considering how bad this injury looked initially, Williams is relieved to have avoided any ACL damage. However, the Redskins will likely be without their stud left tackle for at least a couple games. He was replaced by rookie Morgan Moses Sunday.

Redskins LT Trent Williams left Sunday's Week 11 game knee and ankle injuries.

He's been ruled out for the rest of the game. Williams partially dislocated his right knee earlier this season, but didn't miss any time. Rookie Morgan Moses has replaced him at left tackle.
