Hamstring injury lands Cary Williams on injury report

The Eagles will try to take another step toward an NFC East title against the Vikings this weekend and they might have to do it without one of their starting cornerbacks.

Cary Williams showed up as limited on Thursday’s injury report because of a hamstring injury. Williams was not on the injury report at all on Wednesday and Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports that he was on the field for the start of Thursday’s work, which suggests picked up the injury during Thursday’s practice.

Either way, his status will be something to watch when the Eagles practice and release their final injury report of the week on Friday. He’s started all 13 games this year, turning in play that has fluctuated from good to inadequate over that span. Inconsistent though he may be, Williams’ absence would test the Eagles’ depth at cornerback beyond Bradley Fletcher and Brandon Boykin.

Safety Earl Wolff and linebacker Najeh Goode were also limited for the Eagles on Thursday.

    Fortunately this came on their bye week against the hapless and tasteless Vikings.

    Did Williams get traded to Dallas this week?

    LOL, I thought Jerry had a copyright or a patent or some such thing on hamstring injuries.

    I’m excited to watch Boykins and Fletcher. I feel like Mr. Davis has this defence playing very well together. I only wish that the sperminator and Toby were plalying. Eagle’s haven’t had to face a run game for a few weeks.

    Cunningham will take care of that corner if Willaims can’t go.

    Oh, you don’t know who he is. Just like Foles you will soon enough.

    The Packers can win with Flynn. Stay Calm and Carry On.

    Boykin doesn’t move out of the nickel. Roc Carmichael will get the start if Williams can’t go.

    Its a good week to be out, its not like the Vikings can throw the ball so you could stick your grandmother out there at CB and nobody would notice.

    I think this is THEE game to sit players who are not 100%. Not taking anything away from the Vikings but, this is the ideal week to get as healthy as possible.
