Cadillac Could Resume Practicing In August

June 28th, 2009

In a Bucs team report on Yahoo! Sports, an item near the bottom of the article claims injured running back Cadillac Williams is but a few scant weeks from resuming practicing.

Williams, who had a nasty knee injury two years ago made a great recovery and seemed near 100 percent last year when he had his second knee injury in as many seasons.

Unlike last year, it appears Williams may participate in preseason workouts.

Cadillac Williams is recovering from his second torn patellar tendon in as many seasons. But unlike last year, when he tore the patellar tendon in his left knee, the tendon did not rupture. Instead, it tore away from the bone, making the prognosis for a full recovery much shorter. There’s a chance Williams might be cleared to practice sometime in the preseason, but most likely he will begin the year again on the Physically Unable to Perform list.

This is good news to Joe. Though Williams shouldn’t be counted on, the fact that it appears he could be back fairly quick is icing on the cake for Bucs running backs, already loaded with Earnest Graham and Derrick Ward.
