Quad Pull Keeps Mike Williams Out

The Redskins kept tackle Mike Williams out of practice today after he was diagnosed with a pulled quadriceps muscle earlier in the week.

"There was no reason to put him out there," Coach Jim Zorn said. "When we get to camp, he will be better and he will be in better shape."

The conditioning of Williams, who has not played in three years, is significant since he showed up for OTAs at 370 pounds and he and the have been working on getting him to lose weight.

Good to hear about Barnes getting 4 picks in practice, as long as none of them were thrown by JC 17.

Okay, maybe one of them.....

Cheers to William's FIRST hundred pounds of weight loss.

Flash to Coach Zorn: Camp is in July, not December.

Zorn knows this OTA frippery is for the coaches, not the players.

Still, can you believe Big Mike made it through a whole sequence of exercises without accidentally sitting on (and smothering) an assistant manager?

"Zorn knows this OTA frippery is for the coaches, not the players."

For someone like Mike Williams, who hasn't played in years (and wasn't exactly a HOFer to begin with), every OTA, practice, film session, or light jog is important.

Okay, maybe not the light jog.

But think how many calories he burns just moving all that body mass even at a light jog.

Plus, when we're talking about Williams Can anything be considered "light".

"since he showed up for OTAs at 370 pounds and he and the have been working on getting him to lose weight"

Very poor choice of phrasing there, very JLC-esque. Come on Les, you make it sound like the guy showed up out of the blue coming off some kind of eating binge. He lost 15 POUNDS since the first batch of OTA's! Dude has dropped like 100 lbs since he started training to come back. That is EXTREMELY impressive.

He is very close to his original playing weight now, well within reach by the start of camp. Of course his conditioning is a concern - it would be for anyone that size coming off such a long layoff.

Metal is right - context is everything
