On Friday, Redskins HC Jay Gruden announced Friday that Williams underwent surgery for a thumb injury and is “week to week.” However, it sounds like he could miss a decent amount of time.
Williams recently met with a specialist regarding his dislocated thumb and it looks like they decided it was best for him to get the surgery now.
Ty Nsekhe will be their starting left tackle in place of Williams. Washington’s next four games are against the Falcons, Buccaneers, Texans and Cowboys.
Williams, 30, is a former first-round pick of the Redskins back in 2010. He currently in the third year of his five-year, $66 million contract that includes $43.25 million guaranteed and stands to make base salaries of $10 million and $11 million over the next two years of the agreement.
In 2018, Williams has appeared in seven games for the Redskins.
