The Redskins will be without All Pro LT Trent Williams for four games. The NFL suspended Williams this evening citing a violation of the substance abuse policy. This is a major blow to a team who is looking to bounce back after the BYE. The Redskins will face the Vikings, Packers, Cowboys, and Cardinals during Williams’ suspension.
Williams missed his test he didn't fail it.
