Terrance Williams remains out of Cowboys practice

Wide receiver Terrance Williams hurt his ankle early in last Sunday night’s game against the Giants, but returned after being evaluated by the medical staff to lead the Cowboys with 68 receiving yards in the 19-3 victory.

He may not get the opportunity to go for a repeat against the Broncos this week. Williams didn’t practice on Wednesday and, according to multiple reports from Dallas, the wideout is out of practice again on Thursday.

If Williams can’t go, Brice Butler would likely see an expanded role alongside Dez Bryant and Cole Beasley. Butler had one catch for 30 yards while playing 35 snaps against the Giants.

Cornerback Orlando Scandrick also remains out of practice for the Cowboys. Scandrick had surgery Monday after fracturing his left hand in the game and said he hopes to play this week, although his absence from practice may make that less likely.

  1. it’s time for Butler to truly step up. He has flashed some here and there, but it’s time for him to come full circle. I expect he will if the ball comes his way more than once or twice.

  2. That was the most bizarre injury I’ve ever seen. No contact, nothing that’s usually involved in guys getting injured. It looked like he just decided to walk on the side of his foot all of a sudden.

    Shouldn’t world-class athletes be more graceful than that?

    All that said, Williams had a strong performance and definitely helped the Cowboys put the Giants away. They need to get him back ASAP, because he looks much better than he did a year ago.

  3. If neither Williams or Scandrick play, I don’t have a lot of faith in Dallas winning this game.

    Yes, Dallas has a ridiculous running game, but Denver has arguably the best DB core in the league. Talib will frustrate Dez, and if there is no Williams, then harris will cover Butler effectively. Roby will find a way to make life difficult for Beasely. ANd thats not even discussing Miller.

    Either way, I expect this to be a tight game.

    Ehh, if i recall correctly he steps on the defenders foot and turns his ankle. Might be wrong but I’m pretty sure that’s what happened.
