Roy Williams said Thursday he will play Sunday against the Falcons, but coach Wade Phillips is not so sure.
Williams' bruised ribs are still giving him some trouble even though he has practiced every day this week, and Phillips does not want to get caught in a situation where Williams lasts only a few plays Sunday and cannot continue.
Williams will practice today, which will go a long way to determining his availability Sunday. Even if Williams plays, there is a chance rookie Kevin Ogletree could be active for a second straight weeks. Just guessing, but I would expect Williams to be listed as questionable for the game.
"You can tell he's in pain sometimes during practice, catching the ball, those kinds of things," Phillips said. "I think it's lessened as the week has gone along, but we'll see where he is today."
