Premature evaluation. It's unpleasant, it's embarrassing and it leaves you looking small.
Roughly an hour ago, Pro Football Talk ran a story, quoting an anonymous source, which claimed WR Roy Williams broke his collarbone and would miss an extensive period of time.
Several other sources have since reported that x-rays were negative. We won't know the full extent of Williams' injury and the timetable for his rehab until an MRI is performed tomorrow.
In the meantime, take a deep breath, throw down a stiff drink and enjoy PFT's backpedal, which would make Deion Sanders proud:
Unexpectedly negative. I think I've found a new go-to phrase.
Football hurts folks, and it may be Dallas' turn to feel the sting. If WIlliams has to miss significant time, he'll be missed. If he's out two, three or four games, we'll find out what the rest of the team is made of. That first month has Tampa Bay, the Giants, Carolina and Denver. Tough, but hardly impossible. Nobody is going to feel any sympathy, ladies and gents, especially the division, which has more than its share of injuries to overcome. Until we have reason to do so, cancel the pity party.
