This officially ends Williams’ 2019 season and sets up for a potential battle over the money the roughly $6 million left of his salary he’s owed.
Williams reported to the team a few weeks ago but failed a physical due to discomfort from wearing his helmet.
Reports have said that Washington is expected to make Williams available for trade again next year.
Williams, 31, 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.
