Williams also skipped minicamp and Garafolo says it could be a while before he’s back with the team.
Williams requested either a trade or release earlier this offseason and has reportedly vowed not to play for Washington in 2019.
Williams is reportedly dissatisfied with both his contract and the way the team handled a medical issue concerning a growth on his head, per Ian Rapoport.
Williams was expected to be ready for training camp after he had the growth removed, though Rapoport now says it’s not a given he would be cleared to play. Doctors were worried it was malignant, but Williams should be unaffected once he recovers.
Williams also missed time last season with thumb, knee and rib injuries. He played through a torn patellar tendon during the 2017 season.
Williams, 30, is a former first-round pick of the Redskins back in 2010. He currently in the fourth year of his five-year, $66 million contract that includes $43.25 million guaranteed and stands to make base salaries of $11 million and $12.5 million over the next two years of the agreement.
In 2018, Williams started 13 games for the Redskins. Pro Football Focus rated Williams as the No. 21 tackle out of 80 qualifying players.
