The word last week was that Cowboys left guard Connor Williams would miss time after having arthroscopic surgery on his knee and Williams did miss last Sunday’s win over the Lions.

Williams may not miss any more games, however. Williams took part in individual drills with the Cowboys on Wednesday and said that he plans to do team work on Thursday with designs on playing against the Patriots.

“I feel 100 percent,” Williams said, via the Dallas Morning News. “My biggest concern was making sure not to get on the field until I felt 100 percent. We’ve been working well. The training staff has been doing a great job, and I feel great. . . . My goal was getting back this week. I went through the same thing last year and had expectations on what to expect. So I just worked towards that and now we’re here.”

Right tackle La'el Collins didn’t practice on Wednesday due to knee and back issues while right guard Zack Martin was limited due to a variety of ailments. Having all three linemen ready to go for Sunday would be a positive for the Cowboys in their matchup with the AFC frontrunners.

  1. Folks they need him to play so the owner can keep his puppet next year and beyond.. problem is they can keep him but he’s never going to get the job done……he’s proven that in the last 10 years.

  2. Actually, if you watch the Cowboys games, you’d know his backup- Xavier Su’a-Filo plays much better. Right now, this is a situation where the Cowboys drafted Connor in the 2nd, and WANT him to be the guy. He’s still under-sized and gets pushed around a lot. Xavier played well in Connor’s absence, and did again last week in Detroit.

    If the coaching staff would play the best players, they would increase their chances of winning. Cowboys fans know what I mean. This happened earlier this year with Anthony Brown and Jourdan Lewis. Jourdan Lewis has played significantly better, yet the Cowboys repeatedly started Anthony Brown. Now that Anthony Brown is on IR, Jourdan gets his chance to shine. Same goes at safety. They drafted a ball hawking safety from A&M (Thompson) who lead the team in interceptions this preseason. Instead, the Cowboys start Jeff Heath who repeatedly gets burned each game. This is exhibit 14935 on why the Cowboys need a better head coach.

  3. Need Connor back on that line this week. Pats Defense is undeniably the best in the league this year. Xavier is ok coming in for a spell and is a better pass blocker than he is run blocker, but cannot be relied on for long stretches.
