There were no miracles. Coach Ken Whisenhunt said that running back Ryan Williams does indeed have a ruptured patellar tendon after further examination, and he is out for the season. Surgery should come in the next few days, and they hope to have him back for training camp in 2012. They will add a running back, although Whisenhunt isn’t sure to what level — he could just be a camp body taking needed extra camp reps/preseason plays, or it could be someone more. Any vet has to be researched, Whisenhunt said. Chemistry is a big deal, and the newcomer has to know his role.
Current fourth-stringer Alfonso Smith is a “viable candidate” Whisenhunt said.
