Redskins star left tackle Trent Williams spent parts of the last month dealing with a significant medical scare but is now believed to be clear, according to a report from NFL Network.
Ian Rapoport reported, “Williams' health issue was related to growth or tumor on his head that had doctors worried it was malignant. Williams had the growth removed and at this point, should be unaffected once he recovers.”
Back in February, Williams posted a picture to his Instagram story that showed a procedure on his scalp.

At the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, Redskins head coach Jay Gruden was asked about Williams’ surgery but his answer did not make the situation sound too serious.
“It was just an individual thing,” he said.
While there aren’t many details, the situation obviously sounded quite troubling at some point. Williams has dealt with a number of injuries from the football field, but this was something very different.
The report shows Williams is expected back for Redskins training camp, which begins in late July.
For weeks, Gruden has joked that he might not have enough linemen to partake in offseason training work. Maybe this is a part of that.
