Trent Williams Reveals Cancer Diagnosis Led to Distrust with Redskins

When Trent Williams in the on the field, he is one of the best left tackles in the NFL.

Unfortunately for the Washington Redskins, Williams not been with the team all year, as he was reportedly holding out for a new contract or a trade.

Now that the trade deadline has passed, Williams has finally reported to the Redskins and may see the field again soon. With his return, we are learning that there was a lot more than meets the eye when it comes to his holdout.

Williams, 31, was diagnosed with cancer in the offseason, six years after a growth was discovered on his head by the Redskins medical staff.

The tumor was attached to his skull and had to be removed to save his life. The problem is that Williams was led to believe that the growth was not cancerous by the Redskins medical team, leading to the distrust that exists now.

The Redskins have responded to the statements made by Williams by asking for a review of his medical care under the NFL’s Collective Bargaining Agreement. You have to wonder if this a team covering their bases, as a lot can came from these claims.

The fact is, football players put their bodies on the line every Sunday when they hit the field. For Williams, he no longer wants to take that risk for an organization that he feels like he can’t trust.

As of now, Williams can’t play because he did not pass his physical after being unable to wear a helmet comfortably because of the surgery to his head.

The Redskins will need to find him a helmet that fits comfortably if they want Williams to play this year.

But finding a new helmet is just the tip of the iceberg for their problems in this situation, as Williams and the Redskins look to be heading towards a messy divorce.

Entering this season, LSU QB Joe Burrow was an afterthought in the Heisman race, as few knew what to expect from the Ohio native.

However, after Burrowswon the 2019 Heisman Trophy on Friday night in a historic landslide, he left little doubt he is the best player in college football.

The quarterback received 2,608 points, including 90.7% of the first-place votes, 93.8% of total votes, and was on 95.5% of the ballots, all records by a Heisman winner.

Oklahoma QB Jalen Hurts finished second with 762 points, while Ohio State QB Justin Fields was third with 747 points, and Ohio State DE Chase Young rounded out the finalist with 643 points.

A former Ohio State transfer, Burrow rapidly went from a virtual unknown to the Heisman front runner after leading LSU to a number one seed in the College Football Playoffs.

Burrow had SEC-record 48 touchdown passes and 4,715 yards so far this season and currently is on pace to secure the all-time passing completion percentage record with 77.9%.

In an emotional acceptance speech, Burrow thanked his family, teammates, and most emphatically, LSU head coach Ed Orgeron.

No. 1 LSU takes on No.4 Oklahoma in the Peach Bowl on December 28th in the first round of the College Football Playoff, as Burrow hopes to add a championship title to his impressive Senior season.

Lamar Jackson Breaks Michael Vick’s Record for Most Rushing Yards in a Season

Lamar Jackson went into Thursday’s game against the New York Jets with history on his mind, as he was primed to break Michael Vick’s record for most rushing yards in a season for a quarterback.

Jackson joined Vick as the only quarterbacks to ever rush for 1,000 yards in a season, when he gained 40 yards against the Bills last week to reach 1,017 rushing yards on the season.

That put Jackson just 32 yards away from breaking Vick’s record, which he obliterated with 86 yards rushing against the Jets.

Jackson now has 1,103 rushing yards on the season and is well on the way to winning the league MVP.

Along with his work on the ground, Jackson dominated the Jets through the air, completed 15 of his 23 passes for 212 yards and five touchdowns.

The Ravens cruised to a 42-21 victory over the Jets, moving to 12-2 on the season. In doing so, Baltimore has clinched the AFC North for the second-straight year under Jackson’s leadership.

While clinching the division is a big deal, all eyes were on Jackson during and after this game, as no one thought Michael Vick’s record would ever be touched.

The reason being that Vick was a once and a generation type talent, but all of a sudden there is another one in Lamar Jackson.

Jackson now has two more games to pad his MVP stats before getting ready to lead his team into the playoffs.

Coming of 10-straight wins the Ravens are considered the favorites to make it out of the AFC, although the New England Patriots and the Kansas City Chiefs both present difficult matchups.

Everything should be in place for Baltimore, as one more win clinches a playoff bye and home field throughout the playoffs.

The only way they don’t get a playoff bye at this point though is for the Chiefs and Patriots to win out and the Ravens to lose their last two games.

Considering the way the Ravens have been playing though, it is hard to see anyone betting against them in any game doing down the stretch.

Saints Lose Key Pass Rusher as Marcus Davenport to Season-Ending Foot Injury

The New Orleans Saints suffered a devastating loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.

While losing the game was a tough pill to swallow, the worse one may have been the player they lost, as Marcus Davenport came away with a season-ending injury.

Davenport is a key player in the Saints defensive front, as the second-year player was in the midst of a great season.

New Orleans traded up 13 picks in the 2018 NFL Draft to select Davenport with the 14th overall pick. In his rookie season, Davenport had 4.5 sacks, 12 QB hits and 22 tackles.

This year, Davenport improved upon those numbers with six sacks, 16 QB hits and 31 tackles through 13 games.

New Orleans has already clinched their division title, but they have plenty left to play for this regular season.

Currently sitting at 10-3, the Saints are tied with Green Bay Packers and are a game behind the 49ers for a first round playoff bye in the NFC.

The Saints are certainly going to miss Davenport’s services over the last three weeks of the season and in the playoffs, as they hope to make another Super Bowl run.
