The holdout is over, and now the real fight between the Redskins snd Trent Williams begins. He had been staying away from the team since June, but there wasn't an official statement until today.

Williams disclosed for the first time that the growth on his head was cancerous and he's had it for 6 years, 4 years longer than initially reported. He feared for his life and had to have it removed earlier.

Trent Williams officially reported to the team, and passed a physical until he couldn't put his helmet on without feeling discomfort. He had multiple surgeries to excise the growth, and is still recovering.

The Redskins are taking the next step in their war with Trent Williams. They have requested that the NFL's Management Council convene a joint committee with the NFLPA to review the medical records and care given to Trent Williams. They will fight his accusations until an arbitrator gets involved. This will affect whether he gets paid this year, and how many years are left on William's contract.
