Thursday was the first day of contact practice for CB Aaron Williams and head coach Chan Gailey was encouraged by what the rookie cornerback was able to do.
Williams has been out of the lineup since Week 3 when he suffered a chest/shoulder injury. While he has been practicing the past week or so he has been unable to take part in any contact drills until today (Thursday). Gailey commented on Williams chances for Sunday’s game.
“Aaron Williams had a good day,” Gailey said. ”He’s continuing to come along. He may play this week, he may not. It probably has more to do with how much he remembers and retains with respect to game plan than it does with his health.”
Williams was still listed as limited in practice Thursday. With Terrence McGee, Drayton Florence and Leodis McKelvin ready to play and with Reggie Corner and Justin Rogers in reserve, there doesn’t appear to be an overwhelming urgency from the defensive staff to push Williams back into the lineup prematurely whether it deals with the physical or mental aspects of the game.
