The Washington Redskins will not have future Hall of Fame left tackle Trent Williams on the field when they take on the Philadelphia Eagles in their season opener on Sunday.
A holdout since training camp started, Williams did not report to the team facility on Wednesday. This means that his absence will last through at least Week 1.
A recent report suggests that Williams could be back in time for Washington’s Week 2 game against the Dallas Cowboys.
However, we’d caution against optimism in that regard. Williams’ camp has been pretty strong in indicating that he has no plans to ever suit up for the team again.
Williams, 31, has earned seven Pro Bowl trips since the Redskins made him a top-five pick back in 2010. He’s currently played under a below-market deal and has widespread issues with the Redskins’ front office.
