Good luck in your post-football future BMW. Maybe he took some of those business classes the league has been offering so he can have some success since he had to know even if he did make it back he didn't have a lot of years in the league left. Now I'm sure this ends the comeback as we know it.

Maybe next year, if there is even a next year. If not, best of luck to him wherever he may go.

Talked to Mike Williams he hasn't been told by anyone in the organization that's he's being released; he met w/Shanahan this morning.

shitty way to find out..

Shanahan said after practice that Williams will be released, and re-evaluated in six months. So who knows?

Sucks he was released right after he found out he was sick. Best of luck to him....let this be a lesson to you dipshits who whine and blast players when they sit out and ask for more money. It's not personal, it's biz'niz.

I was about to say, releasing him rather than putting him on one of the injury lists NFL teams have for players who get injured or find out about a serious condition while not on the football field would've been a dick move. Aka, it sucks that you have a health problem, but we're gonna release you instead of putting you on this list that will allow you as much time as you need to get healthy and see if you can pick up where you left off afterward.

I was hoping they would put him on IR, but I understand there are complications associated with that.

He's been told to stay affiliated with the team. Depending on how his situation improves, he could get another opportunity. Whatever the outcome, I wish him the best and appreciate all the hard work he put in to get back on track.

Re: Update: Redskins Place M. Williams on Non-Football Injury/Illness List; May Release Him Soon

Sounds as though Coach wasn't quite sure of the proper wording of where to place Mike. It appears "reserved-non-football illness list" would be a more appropriate placing, if RI is correct?

Posted at 7:53 PM ET, 07/29/2010
Mike Williams placed on reserve list

Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan said Thursday that the team was placing offensive lineman Mike Williams on the reserved-non-football illness list. Williams will miss the season due to blood clots near his heart.

Williams, 30, overcame weight problems to earn a starting job last season and was expected to compete for the starting right guard position this year before he was hospitalized due to the problem. Williams is taking blood-thinning medication for the clots.

"Mike is going to have this year off," Shanahan said. "He'll be released. Any time you're on the blood thinner you can't compete. Mike will be off this season and hopefully in six months he'll take a physical and he'll be able to play. I had a good conversation with Mike today, he's going to live in the area, he is going to try to keep in great shape, he wants to keep playing football and hopefully he'll be able to."

Considered a bust as a left tackle after being drafted in the first round by the Buffalo Bills, Williams revived his career in Washington last year.

After being out of football for two years, the former University of Texas standout lost more than 70 pounds, dropping from about 410 pounds to around 330 last season and eventually earned a starting job at guard. Williams was rewarded with a two-year contract this offseason.
