PHILADELPHIA – Washington Redskins left tackle Trent Williams said umpire Roy Ellison cussed him out during a drive late in the first half Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles, an accusation teammates backed.
Williams said Ellison walked by him after a play and called him a “garbage-ass, disrespectful m—–f—–.”
Pool reporter Michael Phillips of the Richmond Times-Dispatch attempted to contact the officials regarding the accusation. The officials already were on a bus, so Phillips told the driver he needed to talk to head referee Walt Coleman. According to Phillips, Coleman came to the window and asked what he wanted. When Williams’ account was relayed to Coleman, Phillips said the referee said, “OK,” then directed the driver to roll up the window. The bus then drove off.
An NFL spokesman said the league will look into Williams’ accusation.
