Sherman: Williams okay, expected to play

Packers cornerback Tyrone Williams was cut in a domestic disturbance Tuesday night at his home in which his wife was arrested, according to broadcast and wire reports.<p>

Police said Williams' wife, Shantel, was arrested Tuesday night after the player was cut on his forearm, requiring stitches. A Green Bay Police Department spokesman said Tyrone Williams arrived home before 9 p.m. and found the tires on his vehicle slashed and windows broken. When he entered the home he found his clothes cut up or doused with bleach, writing on the walls of his house and items broken. Shantel Williams used pepper spray on her husband and he pulled her to the floor, police said. She was expected to appear in court late Wednesday.

Williams was not at practice Wednesday and was replaced by Tod McBride.

Packers Head Coach/GM Mike Sherman said Williams attended meetings Wednesday and would practice Thursday. Sherman said he expected Williams would be available for the team's Sunday playoff game at St. Louis. Williams is not listed on the injury report.

Safety Darren Sharper expressed confidence in Williams:

"Does he have a broken leg? The only thing that's going to keep him out is a broken leg or something," Sharper said. "He'll be okay, and he'll be on the field with us.
