Cadillac leaves practice early, no cause for concern

Cadillac has suffered a minor ankle sprain.

Don’t worry folks, the anke sprain suffered by Cadillac Williams early Sunday morning is said to be ‘minor’. Coach Morris said he will be “day-to-day”, and I wouldn’t be surprised if he sits out the next day or so.

We all know how Williams has been prone to injury ever since his rookie season concluded, but let’s just hope this is something he can overcome during the course of the season. With Derrick Ward, Kareem Huggins and Clifton Smith working behind Williams, the Bucs should give these guys more reps in the coming days, especially Ward.

Since Earnest Graham is now the full-time starting fullback, he won’t be pulled back into the running back spot…yet. If the injuries begin to pile up for Cadillac during the season, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see Graham take some reps at running back.

We will continue to track the progress of Williams’ ankle sprain, as well as the rest of training camp.

    Thankfully, this isn’t a serious injury at all.

      Yeah, we can not afford to lose him this season. Our young offense will rely on him this season.
