Troy Williamson out for the year

For Week One, receiver Troy Williamson — one of the many first-round busts from the 2005 draft — surprisingly earned a starting job.

For Week Two, Williamson was back on the bench.  And when he got a chance to play, he suffered a season-ending injury.

Per a league source, Williamson is expected to miss the rest of the season with an arm injury.  Initially, Williamson was described as probable to return to Sunday’s home loss to the Cardinals, despite being in obvious pain.

Williamson had three catches for 34 yards in two 2009 games.  He was traded to Jacksonville in 2008 after three disappointing ball-bouncing-off-the-hands-or-helmet seasons in Minnesota.

  1. What a disastrous week for Jags receivers. Nate Hughes played so poorly he was cut (and I was rooting for him as an undrafted free agent) and now Williamson, who looked so good in the pre-season, is out for the year.
    Looks like Underwood will move up from the practice squad. Perhaps Hughes will land on the practice squad himself after he clears waivers.

  2. He doesn’t need arms to catch. Just throw some stickum on his helmet. He’d for sure be a great reciever that way.
