DeAngelo Williams has surgery

Carolina Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams had surgery Monday on the foot/ankle injury that caused him to miss the final two games of the regular season.

Darin Gantt of the Rock Hill Herald reports that Williams wrote about the surgery on his web site, although we don’t have a link because Williams apparently charges readers for the content on his site. (He should ask Newsday how well that works.)

Per Gantt, the surgery was
performed by Panthers team doctor Robert Anderson, and it’s not believed to be serious.

Williams had 1,117 yards and seven touchdowns in 13 games in 2009.
