Receiver Teddy Williams said he and receivers coach Jimmy Robinson, who collided on the sideline in a punt drill on Saturday, will both be fine and back on the field soon.
“It’s just a blessing that neither one of us got hurt really bad,” Williams said. “So we’ll both be back. We’ll be good.”
Robinson was knocked on his back and unconscious in the collision with the 6-3, 200-pound second-year player, who suffered a hamstring injury when he tried to pull up to avoid hitting the coach.
Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said it will be a day or two before Robinson, who was taken to a San Antonio hospital and released about two hours later, comes back to practice.
“He’s certainly very lucid and the same Jimmy Robinson we know,” Garrett said. “We just need to take any precaution necessary when something like that happens.”
Williams still couldn’t believe it happened.
“You could play football 30 or 40 years and something like that would never happen,” he said. “It was just a freak accident. It was nothing intended. There’s no hard feelings. It’s love. I love my coach so much, and I was really, really worried about it.”
