Adrian Peterson Ready To Work With, Not Watch, Derrius Guice

Nov 14, 2019 10:13 AM

Adrian Peterson is "excited" about the return of Derrius Guice, but he isn't ready to concede his role with the Washington Redskins.

Peterson was inactive in Week 1, the last time Guice was healthy enough to play.

"Coach [Jay] Gruden was here. He's no longer here, so different scenario," Peterson said of Guice returning.

Bill Callahan expects to find carries for both Peterson and Guice.

"We've got a pretty good rotational system for that," Callahan said. "We feel pretty confident [Guice will] see quite a bit of action this weekend."

Washington Will Withhold Trent Willams' $5.1M Salary

Nov 8, 2019 3:46 PM

Washington will not pay the remaining $5.1 million base salary for Trent Williams for the remainder of the 2019 season.

This decision is voluntary and within Washington's rights, but is inconsistent with how other teams typically operate.

Williams is on the non-football injury list. Washington revealed a cancer diagnosis that played a part in his extended holdout and distrust of the team's medical staff.

Washington paid him last week when he returned to the team.

Trent Williams: Cancer Scare At Root Of Rift With Washington

Nov 1, 2019 9:29 AM

Trent Williams says he no longer trusts the Washington Redskins and felt they were vindictive in how they waited until the last minute to try to trade him.

He is also upset over how long it took the Redskins to take care of a cancerous growth on his scalp.

Williams, who ended his holdout Tuesday, spoke publicly for the first time since the end of last season.

"There's no trust there," he said. "There are some things that happened that are hard to look past."

Williams said he was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer called dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans. He said doctors told him the growth was removed only weeks before it would have reached his skull.

"It was cancer. I had a tumor removed from my skull -- attached to my skull -- it got pretty serious for a second," Williams said. "I was told some scary things from the doctors. It was definitely nothing to play with. It was one of those things that will change your outlook on life."

Williams said he first asked the Redskins' medical staff about the growth on his head six years ago, but he said nothing was done until this offseason.
