Wide receiver says it's 'not just this team' involved in missed calls.

The league's VP of officiating said Monday the officials should have stopped the Redskins-Giants game Sunday night to clear up the confusion over what down it was.

The NFL VP of officiating said play in Sunday night's game “should have been stopped prior to third down and the correct down communicated to both clubs.”

Mike Shanahan says he was told by an official the Redskins had gotten a first down.

New allegation comes in addition to Williams being accused of using a profanity and a racial slur during the Nov. 17 game at umpire Roy Ellison, which Williams has denied.

League's one-game suspension for using profanity at Redskins lineman Trent Williams remains in place this weekend.

The group also intends to file an immediate grievance on behalf of umpire Roy Ellison.

'The thing I’m hoping is that the truth will come out that Trent did curse him and did use the N-word at him,' says John Wooten of the Fritz Pollard Alliance.

Umpire Roy Ellison suspended without pay for "profane [and] derogatory" statement.
