Redskins Tackle Trent Williams Undergoes Surgery On Friday

Posted Dec 29, 2017

The six-time Pro Bowler posted on Instagram a photo of him at Inova Fairfax Hospital as he prepares to undergo the first major surgery of his life.

Washington Redskins Pro Bowl tackle Trent Williams underwent surgery on Friday morning to correct a knee injury that plagued him for a majority of the 2017 season before he was placed on Injured Reserve last week.

Williams posted the above photo on Instagram saying “#sliverbackunderconstruction.”

The six-time Pro Bowler said last week that his surgery was going to be conducted by Dr. Robin West, the Redskins’ Director of Sports Medicine.

“She specializes in the patella knee cap area,” Williams said. “I’m just going to let her do it, she’s familiar with it.”

This is the first time Williams has had to go under the knife for a major procedure.

“This is uncharted water for me,” Williams said. “I’ve never had a surgery in my life, not like a real surgery. I had a staph infection in high school where they just had to cut it out, but I’ve never had to get anything repaired. Never broke a bone.”

“I’m scared as hell,” Williams continued about his surgical procedure. “I’m [expletive] bricks over here. I don’t really know what to expect. It’s a tough process to go through, but it’s got to happen.”

This season, the 2010 first-round pick has appeared in 10 games, but hadn’t played since Week 14 against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Despite his limitations, Williams’ production didn’t dip during the season.

According to Pro Football Focus, the 29-year-old did not allow a sack on 363 pass blocking snaps this season.

Williams said his rehab timetable could be five-to-six months.

“I don’t really know how it goes, but I’m just going to try and follow the doctor’s orders and try to continue to put in extra work and do whatever I can to get back as soon as possible,” Williams said.
