Lions' Roy Williams sidelined

Detroit Lions wide receiver Roy Williams won't play against the Cowboys on Sunday and might be out for the season.

The Lions announced Monday that Williams has a sprained knee ligament and will miss several weeks.

It's the second time in the career of the former Odessa Permian and Texas Longhorns receiver that he has missed playing against the Cowboys because of an injury. He also was hurt when the Lions lost to Dallas in 2004, his rookie season.

Williams caught two touchdown passes against the Cowboys last year when the Lions won in Dallas 39-31.

Williams' injury could mean more passes for Lions overachiever Mike Furrey, who celebrated a big day against the Cowboys last year by firing a post-touchdown pass at the end zone wall and knocking down a plastic Cowboys star. The logo, the symbol, of all that is Cowboys, maybe including the plastic part.

"I didn't think the star would come down," Furrey said then. "I didn't want to do that. But all the guys enjoyed it."

Comments

Lions are going to get eaten by the Cowboys this year. Hunted down and eaten up one by one.

There are a few players on the Lions I want to see receive some "payback" for all of the talking they did after the game last year. Furrey; however, has a special place in my heart. I want to see that guy punished. Throwing that football at the star and breaking it, whether he did so intentionally or not, really irritated me.
