Williams (knee) is "very close" to feeling like himself and is expected to be ready for training camp, Kimberley A. Martin of The Washington Post reports. "I got the go-ahead to kind of do whatever I can without obviously being too aggressive on it," Williams said. "I'm extremely blessed. I'll be ready before camp."
Williams has been rehabbing for the past five months after undergoing knee surgery and it appears as if the veteran is getting very close to returning to full strength. Once training camp rolls around, Williams will finally get an opportunity to take the field with new quarterback Alex Smith.
Williams (knee) is expected back for training camp, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.
Williams missed six games due to his knee injury in 2017, playing through the injury in several other weeks. The team has said they won't draft with concern for Williams health and are planning on him being back to 100 percent for the 2018 season.
Williams (knee) is confident he'll be ready for the 2018 season opener, Stephen Czarda of the Redskins' official site reports. "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.
Williams dealt with a knee injury for most of the 2017 campaign and appeared in 10 games before undergoing season-ending surgery. The soon-to-be 30-year-old left tackle not expected to be healthy in time for OTAs this spring but should be ready to go sometime during training camp.
Williams battled this injury all season, but without playoff hope, the Redskins have shut him down since Week 15. His rehab will take 5-6 months, so although he may miss some OTAs, he should be ready for training camp.
Williams (knee) will be placed on injured reserve Friday.
Williams will be shut down for the remainder of the season due to a knee injury, and he also may elect to undergo surgery next week. His expected six-month rehab timetable would project him for a return sometime around June minicamp, barring any setbacks.
