Whereas many players from the Washington Redskins have shown up to spring mini camps, one player has been noticeably absent.
Trent Williams has yet to participate in team activities as he is in pursuit of a new and more lucrative contract to reflect his talent as one of the best offensive linemen in the league.
The 30-year-old offensive tackle has made seven consecutive Pro Bowl teams and is one of the best offensive tackles in the NFL. Yet his current deal only has him as the 10th highest-paid offensive lineman.
In an Instagram story posted Thursday morning, Williams appears to be going into some type of medical procedure dressed in a white hospital gown surrounded by nurses.
Williams previously underwent a procedure to remove a benign growth from his scalp and was reportedly frustrated with Washington's medical team as well, so it's interesting to see him publicly sharing a photo from a hospital bed and undergoing the knife once more.
It is unknown whether or not the Redskins were made aware of Williams most recent operation, the purpose of which has also not been revealed. Hopefully this isn't an instance of Williams going against Washington's wishes by undergoing surgery.
Official training camp for the Redskins begins on July 25. Whether or not Williams will be a member of the team by then remains to be seen, but if he gets his wishes, he'll be suiting up elsewhere in 2019.
