Trent Williams in for another surgery? Redskins LT has cosmetic followup for scar on head

its going to be ok

NFL: Washington Redskins at Chicago Bears Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

JP Finlay follows Trent Williams instagram pretty closely. He reported on Williams' hospital visit back in February that turned out to be a big deal involving the removal of a growth/tumor on his head. That procedure, and it's handling by the Redskins medical staff, is rumored to be a reason Trent wasn't at mandatory mini-camp last week. Williams also reportedly wants a new contract even though he still has two years left on his current deal.

That brings us to today's Trent Williams update from Finlay. Finlay posted a screen shot from Williams' instagram story showing him in a hospital either pre or post surgery. This is not the news you want to wake up to in the morning.

Ian Rapoport updated the story, and added that Williams' surgery is a cleanup to where the original scar was, and is not considered major or a setback. The Washington Post's Les Carpenter also noted that this is a cosmetic procedure for the original surgery performed on Williams' head.

This is good news.
