Trent Williams Explains Absence From Washington Redskins' Workouts

Trent Williams, the left tackle that was the Redskins' No. 4 pick in the 2009 NFL Draft, remains absent from the team's players-only workouts, and people have begun to notice. In two separate interviews, Williams tried to explain his absence, giving a surprising explanation to Chris Russell of ESPN 980:

Just talked to Trent Williams for a while by phone. Quotes to come but he said he thought this #Redskins practice was only for QB's and WR'sless than a minute ago via Twitter for Android Favorite Retweet Reply

 

There's been ample coverage of these workouts, so I don't know how Williams could think it was only for quarterbacks and wide receivers. Also, that doesn't explain his absence from the workouts in April and May.

Williams also said that he has talked to some of his teammates, and they are "on the same page." In an interview with Mike Jones of the Washington Post, Williams said he doesn't expect to be in worse shape because of missing workouts. Time will tell if that is true.

More live from the workout in a bit.
