No Excuses

West Virginia linebacker Reed Williams isn't the type to use injuries as an excuse for anything.

Playing with a hyperextended elbow is certainly a handicap for any defender, but Williams didn't let it bother him in WVU's 62-24 win over Western Michigan. The West Virginia native recorded eight tackles, a pass breakup and an interception, and almost came up with another in an outstanding performance. After the game, however, Williams focused not on all the plays he made, but the one that he didn't.

That's par for the course for Williams, who always focuses on areas for improvement. That's what makes him one of the leaders on defense, and is one of the reasons why he will continue to get better over the course of his career.

In this audio report, Williams discusses the effect of injuries on the linebacking corps, and laments the potential end zone interception that got away.
