Mike Wiliiams Done For The Season
There is only three weeks left until training camp, and the Redskins already have a player done for the year. According to the Washington Post, veteran offensive linemen Mike Williams will miss the season due to blood clots near his heart. The condition is serious enough to cause major concern for the organization. There is a possibility that Williams's condition could end his career. Williams has a history of weight problems before coming toWashington.
This injury is a huge blow to the Redskins' offensive line. Williams is trying to resurrect his NFL career in Washington after a two year absence from football. Williams was supposed to be a valuable backup to a much improved offensive line that features two returning starters and newcomers Trent Williams, Artis Hicks, and Jammal Brown. With this injury, Chad Reinhart will likely backup Hicks at the right guard position or Mike Shanahan could get a veteran offensive linemen from the waiver wire.
But for now, let's hope Williams recovers from his blood clot condition and returns to the football field in 2011.
