The Washington Post reports Redskins LT Trent Williams' four-game suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy was triggered by a missed test.

Understandably, a missed test is considered the same thing as a failed test. It's not in the NFL's best interest to continue suspending star players for (likely) marijuana-related offenses, but Williams doesn't have much excuse. The rules are clear.
Nov 1 - 6:26 PM

NFL suspended Redskins LT Trent Williams four games for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.

The stunning development comes completely out of nowhere, though perhaps not in the context of Williams' career. Williams admitted to marijuana use early in his career, and was previously suspended in 2011. It creates a crater on the left side of an offensive line that's typically one of the league's most volatile — except for Williams. He's missed three games in the past five years, playing through a number of injuries, not all minor. It's unclear how the Redskins will proceed on Kirk Cousins' blindside. Morgan Moses is having a strong year at right tackle.
Nov 1 - 5:39 PM

Redskins LT Trent Williams (knee) is day to day, and questionable for Week 8.

Per the Washington Post, Williams has a "good chance" at suiting up for Sunday's game in London. Williams is one of the toughest players in the league. He'll probably play before getting a rest week during the Redskins' bye.
Oct 24 - 3:16 PM

The Washington Post's Mike Jones reports an MRI revealed "no structural damage" to Redskins LT Trent Williams' left knee.

Jones reports Williams "might be able to play" this week, although that seems like a long-shot after he was seen with a "significant limp" in the locker room after Sunday's game. Either way, it looks like Williams has avoided a long-term injury.
Oct 24 - 12:53 PM

Redskins LT Trent Williams will undergo an MRI on his right knee Monday.

Williams was spotted with a "significant limp" in the locker room. He went down on the second-to-last play of Sunday's loss to the Lions. For now, the issue is being called a "hyperextension," but testing could definitely reveal something more serious. Williams is one of the best players in the NFL. A prolonged absence would be a massive blow for the Redskins.
Oct 23 - 6:04 PM

Redskins LT Trent Williams (knee) has been removed from the injury report.

Williams has missed practice time the last two weeks, but his status was never in doubt. Redskins C Kory Lichtensteiger (questionable, back) is also fully expected to play against the Giants.
Sep 24 - 2:19 PM

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.

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.
Mon, Nov 23, 2015 03:05:00 PM

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.
Sun, Nov 22, 2015 03:59:00 PM

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.
