When and how did the fracture occur? Those facts remain unknown. Jones wouldn’t speak too much to the specifics of the veteran receiver’s injuries. Only that “it’s nothing” to be concerned about for the season.
The Williams news comes on the heels of two exciting free agency signings for the Cowboys in wide receivers Allen Hurns and Deonte Thompson. With the addition of Hurns and Thompson, the Cowboys appear to be building up the supporting cast around their star receiver Dez Bryant and giving him much needed help, rather than releasing him altogether. The latter is still up for debate, however, as the Cowboys haven’t met with the Pro Bowler to discuss his contract.
“We’ll talk about Dez when it’s time,” Jones said.
The plot thickens. It should be interesting to see how the wide receiver story unfolds in Dallas, but it’s good to see the mission to strengthen the roster in action. Meanwhile, we wish Williams a successful and speedy recovery.
