No Preseason, No Problem: Nick Bosa and Laken Tomlinson Credited for Helping Trent Williams Prepare for Week 1
Trent Williams hasn't played a snap since 2018, and without preseason contests, the left tackle's first live game reps will occur on September 13 at Levi's® Stadium for the team's Week 1 match against the Arizona Cardinals.
