Cadillac's Injury Not As Severe As Originally Feared

By JC De La Torre

Finally, some good news out of the debacle against the Oakland Raiders on Sunday. Pewter Report is reporting that Carnell Williams' tear of the patella tendon in his left knee was not as severe as the one he sustained last season to his right knee that jeopardized his career.

“It is. It’s torn, but it’s not the severity of the last one,” Williams told Pewter Report, “It’s more of an off the bone tear, so this process should be much easier. If it is the way it was explained to me, it’s like the Mark Jones tear. After six or eight weeks he was rolling. I’m just hoping for the best and go in for surgery and look forward to rehab."

"That’s the encouraging word,” Gruden told PR, “It’s a patella injury that is the same type of injury that Mark Jones had. Mark Jones, obviously, has returned to full health. It will be another grueling process for him. I’m just excited to see him come back to life as a ballcarrier. I thought he caught the ball well. All indications are that he has a chance to be ready for training camp, but it will be a long road to recovery.”

The TBSB wish Cadillac the best in his recovery.
