Earlier on Sunday, it was reported that Redskins offensive lineman Trent Williams and Redskins' president Bruce Allen have a fractured relationship that was beyond repair.
But just hours later, Tony Wyllie, the Redskins senior vice president of communications, completely denied the report.
"That report is 100 percent false," he said.

Williams has continued to hold out and has yet to report to training camp.
Without their cornerstone left tackle, the Redskins have significant depth issues at the left tackle position. They signed free agent left tackle Corey Robinson on Friday, and are still in conversations about signing former Raiders' left tackle Donald Penn, who worked out for the Redskins last week as well.
Ereck Flowers, who the Redskins signed with the intention of playing left guard for the Burgundy and Gold, has been playing left tackle in Williams' absence. According to NBC Sports Washington's JP Finlay, one member of the Redskins front office told NBC Sports Washington that the current situation is "unfair" to Flowers.
Regardless, the performance has not been good.
Williams still has two years remaining on his contract, but previous reports have suggested that the Silverback has concerns over the Redskins' medical staff as well.
Each day that Williams is absent, it seems the team is less optimistic about his return. Regardless, there's no way to sugarcoat it: the Redskins need Trent Williams on the field.
