Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Roy Williams says he wants to try to return to the field on Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons after missing last week’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs with injured ribs.
But coach Wade Phillips says he’s worried about whether Williams can really go.
“The guy I’m worried about is Roy Williams,” Phillips said at a Friday morning press conference. “He has practiced but he is in pain sometimes. He told me he wants to play and feels like he can play and he has practiced every day and hasn’t missed a snap. I feel like he can play, but he’s the only guy I’m worried about playing in this ball game who’s been injured.”
In four games this season Williams has 11 catches for 214 yards and one touchdown. If he’s able to play on Sunday, he’ll start opposite Miles Austin, who had a huge game in Kansas City in Williams’ absence and surpassed former starter Patrick Crayton on the depth chart.
