The most prominent storyline through the first week of Redskins training camp has been the absence of star left tackle Trent Williams.
The Redskins former first-round pick has reportedly taken issue with the team's medical staff over an offseason procedure, as well as his current contract situation.
The team has made two roster moves to bolster the offensive line while Williams is out and in the event that he gets traded, signing veteran Corey Robinson as well as former Raiders tackle Donald Penn.
NBC Sports' Peter King spoke with NBC Sports Washington about the current holdout at left tackle.
"From the moment it started, where he obviously doesn’t feel great about some of the medical attention that he got, that’s different from just being unhappy with your contract," King said. "If you look at this franchise right now, who is a better player at his position right now than Trent Williams is at left tackle? You would be hard-pressed to find one."
In regards to whether the situation will get resolved and Williams will be back in the fold for the Redskins, King has an optimistic view but would not be surprised to see him move on if both sides can not move past the hurdle.
"My gut feeling is that it gets resolved, and it probably gets resolved with a contract extension but you can tell that if he remains angry and draws the line in the sand the way it appears he has I would not be shocked to see him traded," King said. "I don’t expect to see him traded but I wouldn’t be shocked."
