Broken collarbone for Roy Williams?

Paging Marvin Harrison.

A league source tells us that Cowboys receiver Roy Williams suffered a broken collarbone during his Thursday night collision with cornerback Orlando Scandrick.

Typically, a broken collarbone requires a healing period of six to eight weeks.

Paging Marvin Harrison.

The injury came as the Cowboys practiced without shoulder pads.  Per the source, Scandrick and Williams simply ran into each other.

Paging Marvin Harrison.

UPDATE:  Another source tells us that the X-rays were negative.  Our original source insists that it’s a break, and that Williams will miss 6-8 weeks.

SECOND UPDATE:  Williams told multiple players it was broken.  X-rays reveal otherwise.  MRI coming tomorrow.  Sorry for the confusion.  It’s one of the hazards of real-time reporting, and it’s one we’d like to avoid.

    Romo fainted in the shower when he heard the news.

    Boy, I bet Jones regrets letting TO go. It’s the video screen curse!

    THE WORLD IS ABOUT TO END.
    LIONS ON THE GOOD SIDE OF A TRADE.

  4. DcNinerFan says: Aug 27, 2009 10:29 PM

    Maybe they’ll trade next years first round and a few others for Crabtree. I would be ok with that.

  5. Kidekk says: Aug 27, 2009 10:29 PM

    I feel sorry for people who drafted him early in fantasy leagues. Good news for Jason Witten owners, though.

  6. Rex Grossman says: Aug 27, 2009 10:33 PM

    So what’s this…like 4 regular season games? Cowboys fans, just pretend it’s a drug charge/suspension and not an injury. It will feel like the good ole days!

  7. Ike Huminspurts says: Aug 27, 2009 10:33 PM

    Crabs can’t be traded until he signs a contract FYI, but Florio you have been pimping Matt Jones like you were his agent and what better fit than the Cowgirls where second chances happen!!!

  8. i'm president charlie! says: Aug 27, 2009 10:34 PM

    I just hope Tony Romo’s pinky finger is fully healed.

  9. InnocentCriminal says: Aug 27, 2009 10:35 PM

    The Charles Rogers curse strikes again. Thankfully not to the Lions again. I was just watching a segment on him and his weak collarbone earlier today.

  10. FumbleNuts says: Aug 27, 2009 10:35 PM

    Time for Jesse Holley to show the world what he can do.
    This guy, if they give him a chance, will be REALLY good!

  11. jshawaii says: Aug 27, 2009 10:36 PM

    Hey, I hear Denver has a receiver that Dallas can probably have for cheap!
    I’m sure JJ wants another “TO” clown for the team.

    Haha suckers!!! Special shout out to all my eagle fans!!! Vick looked good by the way

    This has nothing to do with Vick.

    Me too. If you drafted him early if a fantasy league then you are an idiot.

  16. Tiki's Barber says: Aug 27, 2009 10:39 PM

    Florio – no Jerry Jones / Matt Jones Arkansas reference?!?
    Crabtree would be a coup, but I don’t think that would happen.
    I think an undrafted rookie named Kevin Ogletree will step up and take some starter reps. The kid is going to be good.

  17. aj_beerzynski says: Aug 27, 2009 10:41 PM

    Maybe they will overpay for Brandon Marshall now, who needs 1st round picks anyways?

  18. Krobot53 says: Aug 27, 2009 10:43 PM

    Cancel marvin harrison… paging matt jones… younger… faster… more upside… he’s interested in us and now we should be in him… so again Paging Matt Jones!!!

  19. JSS84 says: Aug 27, 2009 10:44 PM

    FLORIO IT SHOULD BE:
    PAGING PAT BOWLEN
    PAGING PAT BOWLEN
    Pat, This is Jerry Jones. Is Brandon Marshall available?

  20. JAG880 says: Aug 27, 2009 10:45 PM

    Matt Jones?

  21. VoxVeritas says: Aug 27, 2009 10:45 PM

    Bummer. Easy early schedule though.
    @ Bucs
    Giants
    Panthers
    @ Broncos
    @ Chiefs
    Bye week

  22. Common Sense says: Aug 27, 2009 10:46 PM

    Matt Jones will a cowboy.

  23. goodjuan says: Aug 27, 2009 10:50 PM

    I hope it wasn’t his 1st down shoulder.

  24. whatthehellisgoingonoutthere says: Aug 27, 2009 10:51 PM

    The Lions got the good side of a trade because the traded player broke his collar bone and will be out 6-8 weeks??
    Marvin Harrison is supposedly asking for too much money. In reality, he probably doesn’t want to get into a camp too soon so the team realizes that he sucks and cuts him in the final cutdowns. If he goes to a team once the season is underway, his salary is guaranteed.

  25. Alpheratz says: Aug 27, 2009 10:53 PM

    I don’t like this guy or the Cowboys, but those of you that choose to celebrate injuries,
    Let’s say you need to take a good look at yourself.
    It ain’t good.

  26. pick6 says: Aug 27, 2009 10:54 PM

    Forget Marvin….I’d page Matt Jones….freakish ability and potential….can’t believe he hasn’t been signed….and he also fits right in with the cowboy way…
    Either way the cowboys are a disaster and I hope it stays that way

  27. Sjanlju says: Aug 27, 2009 11:00 PM

    Xanders, Bowlen, and McHoodie need to be on the phone with Jerry Jones right now.
    Hey Florio, call one of em up and give them the idea. PLEASE. Us Broncos fans are in an uproar after his punt pass and kick tryou video. Want to get rid of that woman beater asap.
    Hell give Cowboys Marshall and a low round pick for Bradie James~

  28. IStateYourName says: Aug 27, 2009 11:04 PM

    Maybe he just has a schism between his collar and his bone.

  29. cannonarm says: Aug 27, 2009 11:07 PM

    Matt Jones is busy scoring some coke and Marvin Harrison is with him riding shotgun…errr HANDGUN

  30. brooks07 says: Aug 27, 2009 11:10 PM

    I hope it’s Marvin. I threw him on my IR spot for a retired player a couple of days ago. I can trade him to the guy who lost Williams.

  31. INVAIDUH says: Aug 27, 2009 11:13 PM

    “Vick looked good”
    Ummm yeah.
    If slow with a side of shovel passes are in the forecast.

  32. kodouble24 says: Aug 27, 2009 11:25 PM

    HEY REX GROSSMAN YOUR A LOSER!! YOU WISH YOU COULD PLAY ON A TEAM LIKE DALLAS.IF YOU HAD ANY BRAINS YOU WOULDNT OPEN YOUR STUPID MOUTH LOSER!!WHO WOULD USE REX GROSSMAN AS A LOG IN NAME LOL?

  33. VoxVeritas says: Aug 27, 2009 11:32 PM

    “If slow with a side of shovel passes are in the forecast.”
    Hey it got him a higher passer rating than McNabb. Plus no fumbled returned for a TD.

  34. MasterShake says: Aug 28, 2009 12:00 AM

    Paging Doctor Moe, Doctor Larry, Doctor Curly.

  35. kodouble24 says: Aug 28, 2009 12:00 AM

    you are not getting bradie james sjanlju. you only wish you could, maybe you have had 2 many drinks up there in the rockies, we dont need anybody from denver, thank you very much lol.GO COWBOYS HATERS GET A LIFE!!

  36. Jackal138 says: Aug 28, 2009 2:00 AM

    Vick also has a higher passer rating this preseason than Tony Romo, Vox. He also has more playoff wins in his career, and has associated with more dogs than your QB – since Jessica Simpson, although rather large, only counts as one.
    So, to be concise… your point is?

  37. godofwine says: Aug 28, 2009 2:13 AM

    Crabtree CAN be traded before he signs his contract. The Eli Manning trade shows you that you can trade “the rights” to a player or draft pick. It would be unwise to make that trade if I were Dallas because you might have a harder time trying to sign his because the player has leverage because you NEED him.

  38. BetterThanYou says: Aug 28, 2009 8:52 AM

    Did he bump it on the jumbotron?

    “Me too. If you drafted him early if a fantasy league then you are an idiot.”
    On the other hand, if you play fantasy football at all, you’re a geek that needs to get a life.

    No he doesn’t.

  41. straverse says: Aug 28, 2009 10:21 AM

    Classic! Says the guy who spends ridiculous periods of time responding to other comments on PFT. Oh god, I’m right there now too.

  44. romobangedyourmama says: Aug 28, 2009 11:08 AM

    vick looked good?
    what did he do?
    throw a pass too high for most receivers to catch?
    he hesitated running the football.
