Coach Ken Whisenhunt said that running back Ryan Williams’ right knee injury is likely a ruptured patellar tendon. The diagnosis must be officially confirmed, but Williams will be out for the season. It’s a hard blow for this offense, especially the way Williams had been flashing his talent. The whole team gathered around him when he was carted from the field, something fellow back Beanie Wells said was because of how the whole team has gotten to like such a good kid. And now his season is over before it really started.
Whisenhunt said the team will look into adding a running back, but Alfonso Smith — who spent part of last season on the practice squad — has shown some flashes, including Friday night, and is a candidate to replace Williams.
