Jerry Jones says Roy Williams will be back "real quick"

Though Cowboys trainers initially believed that receiver Roy Williams had suffered a broken collarbone, the team ended up dodging a major bullet.

Williams officially has a contusion of the shoulder.

Though it’s unclear when he’ll be back, owner Jerry Jones strongly hinted that Williams will be ready to go by Week One.

“I’m not implying that we have a long-winded thing here,” Jones said during an appearance on 105.3 The Fan.  “Based on our review here, we’re talking about a very short time span.  I don’t know that he’ll go Saturday . . . but he’ll be out there real quick.”

Williams injured the shoulder when colliding with cornerback Orlando Scandrick while the players were practicing without shoulder pads.  After the incident, Williams told multiple players that he believed he had a broken collarbone, something that the initial evaluation of Williams corroborated.

  1. Dear Jerry,
    It would be a pity if you died screaming and nobody was around to enjoy it. You are one disgusting pint of douchewater. I hope you get teabagged by a game show host.

  2. You know the story isn’t off to a great start when the headline has horrible grammar. Who do you have, robots or aliens ghostwriting for you?
    Roy williams will back real quick, after earthling was ruled with just contusion.

  3. If he is not ready by the first game of the season it won’t be a problem. They can just punt the ball into the video board for a couple weeks until he is ready to go.

  4. look im a cowboys fan as i have stated daily, but i am sick of jerry jones. why the hell does he feel the need to talk so damn much. he is the only owner and gm who is quoted daily. this guy is an attenion whore. just sign the checks, thats your role! you are not a dr. nor are you a trainer and you have no idea how long this injury is going to take to recover.

  5. Oh, thank god.
    Roy Williams is irreplaceable! Who else is going to make those 30 catches this season?

    Since the rating system isn’t back, despite Florio’s numerous promises that it would be, allow me to say “brilliant”.

    Alot like Rashard Mendenhall.

  9. “Williams told multiple players that he believed he had a broken collarbone, something that the initial evaluation of Williams corroborated.”
    Wow, Florio. That sounds so much better than “We incorrectly reported that Williams had a broken collarbone because we were so eager for the gold that is Dallas Cowboy Internet ad revenue that we couldn’t be bothered to fact check.”
    Good game, yo.

    I don’t hate the Cowboys as much as I do you Cowboy fans. Actually, one of my favorite players of all time is Tony Dorsett. It just amazes me how freakin insane you guys are. You come with all these high expectations each year and get embarrassed. It truly is hilarious.
    Then you put your faith in Roy Williams and Jessica’s ex. Then your Joan Rivers look alike owner is an idiot. Then this huge monstrosity of a stadium is built. Then your punt blocking big-screen TV.
    I remember Nate Newton selling crack, Mike Irvin buying it along with Leon Lett, PacMan Jones making it rain while watching the TO show.
    What really gets me is how you fans dog (no pun intended) the Eagles out for signing Mike Vick. Like the Cowboys are a team of Saints.
    Conclusion. That is why I hate Cowboy fans.

  11. Steelers4life….Its not like Cowboys fans comment on everything Eagles or anything. You know Boys fans just stick to their own posts and are very respectful of other teams posts. You would NEVER catch a Dallas fan trying to stir things up on every Eagles post, no way no how. HAHAH. I find it hilarious that it seems to be a pretty uniform thing amongst Dallas fans to accuse and ridicule others for doing the same things (but to a much lessor degree) that they are notorious for. Can you imagine what Dallas fans would be saying if THEY got Vick?

  12. I was talking to my best friend (who is a Steelers fan) and another close friend (Dallas fan) the day before Vick signed, about Vick signing with the Steelers (since Florio had about a dozen posts that lead one to believe he would sign with Pitt) and everyone in the conversation agreed. Whoever gets Vick is getting a GREAT weapon without giving up anything and that everyone has a 2nd chance. I know that I would HATE to have to play Dallas or Pitt if they had gotten Vick. But bc the EAGLES got him and NOT Dallas, it’s all the sudden a “bad thing” that Philly fans have to “deal with”. Oh and wheres all the VIDEO of the tons of protesters who were going to be passionately attacking the Eagles FO for signing Vick? Oh yea, like Ive been saying for almost 2 weeks now, the drama DOESNT EXIST in Philly besides a handful of losers who arent Eagles fans who are desperate for airtime. No matter how bad the media and Dallas fans would LOVE their to be some big issue in Philly with the signing of Vick, there isn’t. The city is very excited as you could see when Vick got a standing ovation to welcome him in when all everyone was saying was how he would get booed by all the angry fans. Too bad there isnt many mad Eagles fans, only mad fans are those of the Cowboys since they have to see Vick twice a year on a team that was already one of if not the fastest in the NFL.

  13. Just bc Detroit should have been charged with strong arm robbery for taking what Dallas gave up for Roy, and just bc Dallas paid him Fitz money does NOT make him an elite WR. Period. He has his moments where he flashes an athletic play(well he did a few years back on the Lions, nothing so far in Dallas) and will then disappear for sometimes multiple game stretches. His stats were inflated from playing next to Calvin Johnson, who took Roy’s job as a rookie during mid season. Roy is a very good “#2” WR and nothing more. The Boys totally skewed the trade compensation for a decent WR in favor of the team trading the WR. I do think however, that the rest of the league will not allow the Lion’s compensation received for Roy or the subsequent ridiculous amnt of money the turds over-paid him to be used as an example in contract negotiations.

  14. Vox – I have really enjoyed PFT as of late all becuase of you….You by far are the biggets fag of all sporting bloggers. How much time of your day is consumed of cutting and pasting other peoples qoutes and coming up with a “clever” comeback to defend your pathetic cowgirls?…..Go birds.

  16. Ole Jerruh should resign Vandershank…the only times he could hit that thing is when it didnt matter…hurr hurr hurr…

    Sorry, we just have high expectations. So sue us if that makes Cowboys fans unique. Lowered expectations are for people like… you.
    Success = Super Bowl win
    Failure = No Super Bowl win
    It really is as simple as that.
    “Then you put your faith in Roy Williams and Jessica’s ex.”
    Did you not put your faith in Kneel ODonnell and Korkie Stewart? Barry Foster? Jerome Bettis, before he became a broken-down has-been that was just along for the ride? Bubby Brister?
    “Then your Joan Rivers look alike owner is an idiot.”
    Are you a chick? Do you really care what he looks like? Ever seen Dan Rooney?
    “Then this huge monstrosity of a stadium is built. Then your punt blocking big-screen TV.”
    As I’ve been telling you, you’ve got two huge, ugly ketchup bottles in your stadium. It has the worst playing surface in the NFL and the Steelers refuse to do anything about it.
    “I remember Nate Newton selling crack”
    I remember the Steelers cheating the salary cap.
    “Mike Irvin buying it along with Leon Lett”
    Harrison kicking his woman’s ass.
    “PacMan Jones making it rain while watching the TO show.”
    Bam Morris getting caught with like a ton of weed.
    “What really gets me is how you fans dog (no pun intended) the Eagles out for signing Mike Vick.”
    Like the Cowboys are a team of Saints.”
    Like the Steelers or Vikings or any other team is full of saints.
    “Conclusion. That is why I hate Cowboy fans.”
    My conclusion is that you’re an idiot with low expectations across many facets of your life, not just your fandom.

    Bitch you entered, came out and re-entered the witness protection program many times last season. don’t begrudge me a family Christmas trip.

  19. “Whoever gets Vick is getting a GREAT weapon”
    Based on what? He looked slow last night. Don’t really think he’d be much of a receiver or ball carrier. Can he even catch? If you want to take McNabb out and put Vick in I’m good with that but the Eagirls have better options at the other skill positions than Vick.
