Biggs: Dallas' Williams battling injured ribs
The struggling Dallas Cowboys offense could be without top wide receiver Roy Williams Sunday at Kansas City. Coach Wade Phillips revealed Monday that Williams has three damaged ribs coming out of the loss at Denver, and he “cracked a cartilage.’’
The good news is that Williams does not have any broken ribs. It’s expected to be a matter of pain management for Williams, who was injured when he was walloped by Broncos linebacker D.J. Williams as he extended to make a catch. After the game, Williams called it the hardest hit he’s ever taken.
According to the Dallas Morning News, if Williams misses the game against the Chiefs and former Cowboys passing game coordinator Todd Haley, rookie wide receiver Kevin Ogletree could be active for the first time this season.
Williams is averaging 19.5 yards per catch, but has just 11 receptions through four games and one touchdown in the season opener at Tampa Bay. Running back Tashard Choice (12) and tight end Jason Witten (23) both have more catches.
