Dan Williams out for Cardinals due to weight, not injury

Cardinals nose tackle Dan Williams doesn’t appear on the injury report, but he won’t be playing on Sunday.

While he hasn’t broken any bones, he apparently has broken a scale.

According to Mike Jurecki of Xtra Sports 910 in Phoenix (via Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic), Williams won’t play because he’s overweight.

Williams, the team’s first-round pick in 2010, is listed at 327.  Which likely means that his playing weight closer to 340.  Which likely means that he’s tipping 350 in order to end up being shut down because of his size.

    Let the man play at his own preferred weight. We know our bodies better than the Coaches and Team Doctors.

    I told you Sanchez was the father of Gisele’s kid. No one believed me.

    He looked good last Sunday against Oaktown and seemed to win the push against the run especially where he is more effective, so I’m glad he’s not injured. I’m hopeful that he becomes as good as Gilbert Brown someday but without the injuries Brown endured…

    Wait, wasn’t the argument for Williams over Terrence Cody all about weight concerns?

    It’s not the 350 lbs that’s hurting him. It’s the fact that he’s only 5’3.

    No kidding! We could have had one fat, almost useless NT…instead of Odrick AND Misi.

    I remember when a lot of the ” experts ” figured Miami to take big Dan in the draft . I was against it … Can’t you find a fat dt anywhere ?
