Redskins LT Trent Williams is officially done for the seasonBy Ryan Ward
Throughout the last few months, it has been nothing short of a bumpy ride for Washington Redskins Pro Bowl offensive lineman Trent Williams, who has been hoping to move on from the franchise.
However, things have continued to linger on despite him returning to the team before the trade deadline last month. Williams’ situation has hit another speed bump as he has been placed on the reserve/non-football injury list, which has ended his season, according to ESPN.

The Washington Redskins have placed Trent Williams on the reserve/non-football injury list, ending his season.
The team announced the move Thursday, ending a monthslong saga involving the star offensive tackle and the team. Sources said the Redskins likely will look to trade Williams in the offseason, something they were reluctant to do so before the deadline, barring the ability to land a playmaker or a high pick.
The Redskins’ decision to place Williams on this list shouldn’t come as much of a surprise given that he had no plans to play this season. There was no use for him on the roster, given that he wasn’t going to contribute to helping the team on the field in any capacity.
Instead, it only makes it more evident that these two sides are headed towards a separation during next offseason as there is no desire from Williams to play in Washington. The added time off does give him a chance to keep his body fresh for next season where he should be on another team.
