Lions-Williams No Lock For Sunday
Although rookie receiver Roy Williams (ankle) was able to dress for last week's game against Green Bay, he was held out and his status for this week's game against the Giants is still uncertain.
Williams is expected to up his practice regimen this week by trying to do more running and cutting. If he can do that without any setbacks, look for him to play. If he can't, they might have him only play a limited role against the Giants or not play at all. Veteran receiver Az-Zahir Hakim filled in for Williams at his "X" position last week.
Packers-Green's Injury Could be a Factor in his Recent Struggles
Starting running back Ahman Green's sore Achilles continues to act up causing his practice time to be limited at least part of the week.
Green has not rushed for over 81 yards in each of his last four games. One has to wonder if the lingering Achilles injury is affecting his running ability.
Cardinals - Boldin Close to Returning?
Much has been made of second-year receiver Anquan Boldin's possible return to the lineup.
Boldin had meniscus surgery on his knee back on August 11 and started to run a few weeks ago.
While he ran hard and made some hard cuts in individual work this past Monday, his real test will come next week when he has his first full practices of the season in pads. What the medical staff will be looking for is not only how well he can run and cut but how much if any swelling he has the next day after practicing.
Steelers-Rookie Cornerback To be Tested
With much maligned cornerback Chad Scott out indefinitely with a knee injury, second-round pick cornerback Ricardo Colclough will be on the spot when he makes his first NFL start when the club returns from their bye in week eight against the defending Super Bowl Champion Patriots.
The former Tusculum College star will be challenged by the Patriot offense. You can bet that they get after him early and often. While Colclough has speed to burn and should be able to keep up with any of their receivers, the key for him will be his adjustment to the ball in the air which is a general issue for rookie defensive backs.
