A day after helping the Redskins defeat the Packers 31-17, Trent Williams will have minor knee surgery on Monday, 106.7 The Fan's Craig Hoffman confirmed on Sunday. 

The procedure was first reported by Erin Hawksworth of ABC 7. According to Hawksworth, Williams is not expected to miss any games, including the Week 5 matchup with the Saints following the Week 4 bye.

Williams had surgery on the same knee during the offseason after injuring it last season. The six-time Pro Bowler still feels some pain there, possibly due to a bone spur. 

The Redskins will hope this procedure solves Williams' lingering knee issue and ensures he doesn't have to sit out any games. The bye week may have come at exactly the right time, for Williams and Washington.
