Trent Williams won't play for the Redskins this season, and now it appears the Redskins won't pay him.

The Redskins will elect not to pay the remaining balance of Williams' $5.1 million base salary now that their star left tackle is on the team's non-football injury list, ESPN reports:

 Williams revealed last week that a misdiagnosed tumor and ensuing distrust in the Redskins led to his lengthy holdout this season. The contract stalemate already cost the 7-time Pro Bowl tackle about $7 million.

The Redskins say they have requested a third-party review of Williams' medical care. The 1-8 team will likely look to trade Williams this offseason.
