Moses stands in for teammate Trent Williams

RICHMOND, Va. (CBS19 SPORTS) -- Redskins' fans have been waiting for a no. 71 to walk up to the microphone in Richmond and on Sunday they got their wish, except it was not Trent Williams but Morgan Moses.

"You know I missed my guys, missed the Hogs, Brandon (Scherff) and Morgan (Moses)," Moses said acting as if he was Williams, "It's about that time man. Get ready for these guys."

The Redskins Pro Bowl left tackle Trent Williams continues his hold out due to how the team has handled his health in recent years, according to the Associated Press.

The former Wahoo Morgan Moses heads into his sixth season with the Redskins. Moses has 65 career starts with most of those coming on the other side of the line from Williams.

"I just know when he gets here, we're going to welcome him with open arms, he's our brother, we love him," Moses said of Williams, "So when he gets here we'll rock out. He loves football just like every one of us does."

While Moses did not offer his opinion on the dominant story line of Redskins training camp, he said he expects Williams to return to the team at some point.

"I'm pretty sure he wants to be here, obviously he has to figure out some things and they have to figure out some things. That's above my pay grade," Moses said, "Once they figure that out they'll be here. I have full confidence in the guy, when he shows up he's going to be the best left tackle in the NFL still and he's going to be ready to play and he's not going to miss a beat."
