ASHBURN, Va. (AP) - Washington Redskins left tackle Trent Williams says he hasn't heard from the NFL about his allegedly profane encounter with an official and that he thinks the league will "probably sweep it under the rug."
Williams said Wednesday he did nothing to provoke umpire Roy Ellison. Williams claims he was called vulgar names by Ellison during a drive in the second quarter of Sunday's loss to Philadelphia.
Says Williams: "If I said something of that nature to him, it's at least a flag, or I'm thrown out of the game."
Williams says he's heard from other players who have had "the same experience" with Ellison.
Coach Mike Shanahan said he spoke briefly with the league office about the matter.
NFL spokesman Greg Aiello says the incident remains "under review."
