Ryan Williams to rest, and some other notes

Posted by Darren Urban on July 27, 2012 – 12:43 pm

Running back Ryan Williams will “probably” be held out of this afternoon’s practice, coach Ken Whisenhunt said, as a precaution in his rehab. The coach said he’d be conservative with Williams as he comes back and Williams has looked good over the first two days, but this way, Williams will be fresh heading into the Red-White practice tomorrow. Generally, Whisenhunt said, Williams’ status will be treated as day-to-day.

“It’s more of a feel thing,” Whisenhunt said. “It’s part of the plan. He’s done very well.”

– Whisenhunt said he has no set idea how the quarterbacks will be used in the Red-White, which will include a series of offense-versus-defense drives in “more of a game-type situation.”

“I haven’t even thought about it, really,” Whisenhunt said. “We have a rotation based on different days, so (Saturday) may purely be whose day it is. Today is Kevin’s day, so (first-team) may be John’s tomorrow or we may just split it up based on what we’re doing. We haven’t discussed it yet. People are probably going to try to read into it but it really doesn’t mean anything at this point.”

– The Cards usually have a long longer lead-in time before the Red-White work. That wasn’t possible this year because of the Hall of Fame game so soon.

“It’s a little bit of a concern,” Whisenhunt said, noting the Cards have worked hard to install different parts of the playbook. “We’ll find out. But I think this is important to the fans and this was the only time we could work it into the weekend.”

    “Running back Ryan Williams will “probably” be held out of this afternoon’s practice”

    Thank goodness(“probably”)! All is well since we do have other ball carriers like Jared Crank, William Powell, Alfonso Smith, LaRod Stephens-Howling, Javarris James, and Anthony Sherman.

    I wonder how they are doing.
