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.
From what I understand, this latest surgery is to clean up the area where the original scar was. Not considered major, not related to a setback. https://t.co/poZRpPnOCy— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) June 13, 2019
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.
