Raheem Morris: Mike Williams will play

After some confusion early today about whether Buccaneers receiver Mike Williams would play or not following his arrest early this morning on suspicion of DUI, coach Raheem Morris cleared everything up: Williams is playing Sunday at San Francisco.

“Mike Williams did not participate today but he is going to travel and he is going to play,” Morris said.

Morris said he made the decision to play Williams after talking to team officials and the team captains.

“We just gathered the information and just dealing with my captains and everybody else,” Morris said. “We gathered all the information and came to the decision that I’m going to travel him and play him.”

Williams has been a pleasant surprise in his rookie season with the Bucs, catching 40 passes for 627 yards and five touchdowns. According to PewterReport.com, Williams is the fifth Bucs player to be arrested since Morris and GM Mark Dominik took over the team. Three of the previous four — wide receiver Anthony Mix, offensive tackle Marcus Robinson and tight end Jerramy Stevens — were released after their arrests, while cornerback Aqib Talib was given a one-game suspension.

    Of course he’ll play. He’s too good. Jerramy Stevens was a no brainer drop.
    Prediction:
    Mike Williams has 130 yds and two touchdowns.
    Leaving us to hope that all our player could be lucky enough to get arrested… just ask Mike Vick!

    GO BUCCANEERS!!

    Good for him… there’s no reason not to play him.

    He was not drunk according to the breathalyzer tests.

    As a Syracuse alum I’m rooting for this guy to succeed. I just wish he’d stop making these stupid mistakes.

    I believe it is up to the league to issue suspensions in DWI cases, not the team.

    So, did Adam Schefter issue a refute of his own refute??? Guess he was right the first time. Of course, nothing like covering ALL the bases.

    ESPN, your news reporting and creditability sucks! 1. He was arrested on DWI. 2. It might not have been THAT Williams. 3. It was in fact him. 4. It was not the DWI, It was his piss. 5. It was not his piss, team will bench him. 6. Now, he will in fact play?

    Do you just write crap in hopes you will be the first to the truth and just guess at this? Get REAL facts, THEN write a story!

    I might as well go to local barber shop and listen to gossip!
