Wade talks on Roy, Scandrick

Coach Wade Phillips said he didn't know what Roy Williams' condition was after he and Orlando Scandrick "bumped" (that was Wade's word for it) late in Thursday's practice here at Cowboys Stadium. Here's some of what he said:

"I don’t know anything about Roy. He banged his shoulder a little bit, and they’re checking on him," said Phillips. "I imagine they’re going to X-ray it and we’ll see."

When asked if he'd be concerned if he lost Williams for an extended period, Phillips said, "We don’t know anything about Roy, so don’t speculate."

And while we're at it, some player reaction:

Bradie James: "It’s football, and sometimes you run into each other. Hopefully that’s all it is. We’ll see what the prognosis is later."

Keith Brooking: "Well, I mean that’s just the nature of this business. Things like that happen, and it probably happens a lot more than you guys realize among teammates, but the things that we say all the time, Wade emphasizes it and all the leaders emphasize it, that you don’t ever take it off the field. Things happen. Testosterone starts flowing and especially the dog days of camp. It’s been a long time. We’re ready to play somebody for real. You kind of get frustrated at times with your teammates, but when that happens, you leave it on the field and that’s it. You never take it in the locker room; you never take if off this field right here between the lines. That’s something we do a very good job at."
