Trent Williams Presser: "It felt great being back out there"

Trent Williams gives some updates after morning practice.

NFL: Preseason-Washington Redskins at Atlanta Falcons Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

Trent Williams hit the podium after today's practice. He gave updates on his recovery from his season-ending knee injury and the surgery he had in the offseason. He also talked about the importance of Redskins Assistant Head Coach/OL coach Bill Callahan.

Knee recovery:

Different vibe:

Bill Callahan:

"He’s meant everything to me. I’ve been blessed to have two good offensive line coaches in the NFL, and you know, Coach Callahan kind of came and gave me a little kick start. He brought a whole different, new perspective to the game. From my eyes, he added a lot of tools in my toolbox. He’s a grinder. I respect his grind, I respect him as a coach, I respect how much time he put in. I think that goes for everybody in the room. That’s why you see him being able to develop people so quickly because they trust him.”

Yeah he definitely leaned on us. He always kind of puts that on our plate to help bring the young guys along. He has so much he covers; it’s hard for him to spend a lot of time on one person. So, you know the veterans are there to help deliver his message. But to answer your question, Coach Callahan breaks the game down to a science. That’s something that I’ve never done before. I kind of just line up, knew my man, knew my assignment and played. But, he brings an overall understanding to the game and he [improves] your football IQ. He definitely did mine. So like I said, he gave me the kick start that I needed.”

Mental recovery:

Pete Robertson:

"Yeah Pete has been doing an outstanding job. I think he came back ready he knows what to expect this year. You can tell he studied his playbook, man, [and] he is always diagnosing the offense, he already has a good grasps of the defense. He puts himself in good positions and you know he knows how to pass rush. In this league, it’s hard to teach a pass rusher. He has that innate ability to put pressure on the quarterback and I think everybody is starting to notice around him.”
