Seahawks WR Stephen Williams passed his concussion tests and will practice Wednesday.

Williams suffered a concussion in the preseason finale last Thursday. A strong preseason in which he caught seven passes for 236 yards (33.7 YPR) and three touchdowns earned him the No. 4 receiver job over rookie Chris Harper.

Seahawks WR Stephen Williams suffered a concussion in Thursday night's preseason finale.

He'll be week to week. While Williams has shown well in camp and preseason games, the concussion comes at an inopportune time as NFL teams will begin issuing final cutdowns on Friday. Williams was competing for a roster spot.

Cardinals WR Stephen Williams suffered an injury to his right Achilles' tendon during Monday's practice.

Williams was in a walking boot on Tuesday, putting his roster spot in serious jeopardy. Even before the injury, Williams had fallen behind the likes of DeMarco Sampson and LaRon Byrd.

The Cardinals coaching staff felt like WR Stephen Williams hit a "plateau" as a rookie last season.

Translation: He regressed after a strong showing in training camp and preseason action. Early-season mental errors and a Week 5 back injury stalled his progress. By the end of the season, he was well behind fellow rookie Andre Roberts. Williams will enter next season no higher than fourth on the depth chart.

Cardinals WR Stephen Williams could be inactive for Sunday's game.

Williams is dealing with a "small fracture" in his back, but that's only a minor consideration for why he might not be active. Steve Breaston and Early Doucet will return this week, and ILB Gerald Hayes could, as well. Williams has started three games this year but has just seven catches.

Cardinals WR Stephen Williams revealed that he suffered a "small fracture" in his back during the team's Week 5 win.

He plans to practice Wednesday, and believes he'll be able to play through the pain. The undrafted rookie managed just four catches for 38 yards in two spot starts with Steve Breaston (knee) and Early Doucet (hernia) out. Williams moves back down the depth chart with Breaston, at least, set to return.

Cardinals WR Stephen Williams (back, ribs) is expected to be "OK," according to coach Ken Whisenhunt.

Williams' MRI revealed no serious damage. The Cards expect Steve Breaston (knee) and Early Doucet (sports hernia) back after their Week 6 bye. Williams will drop down the pecking order to a fourth receiver role. Breaston and Doucet are slated to resume practicing two Wednesdays from now.

Cardinals rookie WR Stephen Williams suffered injuries to his back and ribs in the team's Week 5 upset of New Orleans.

The extent is unknown, but Williams didn't reenter after catching one pass for six yards. He has the Week 6 bye to get healthy, though Steve Breaston (knee) and Early Doucet (sports hernia) are both due back in time for Week 7.

Cardinals WR Stephen Williams left Sunday's game against the Saints with a back injury.

Williams tapped out after taking a hard hit. He was getting a wrap put on his back on the sidelines, a sign that he may return to the game. The rookie caught 1-of-2 passes for six yards before the injury.

Stephen Williams caught three passes for 32 yards against the Chargers in Week 4.

Williams was targeted eight times, but poor quarterbacking did him in. He had a couple of on Antoine Cason on a bomb attempt, but Derek Anderson overshot his target by nearly 10 yards. Williams is worth a roster spot in deeper leagues, but he's a risky flex option against the Saints next week.
Sun, Oct 3, 2010 07:52:00 PM

The Cardinals have no plans to add a veteran wide receiver, according to GM Rod Graves.

The Cards are going to roll with Stephen Williams as their No. 2 and Max Komar as their No. 3 with Steve Breaston (knee) out. Graves said the team will re-evaluate the position after this week's game against the Chargers. We expect Williams to capitalize on his opportunity and keep Graves from making a move.
