Few, if any starters are scheduled to play in Thursday night’s preseason finale against the Dolphins, so Roy Williams--who is currently dealing with multiple injuries--wouldn’t have seen time anyway; but after missing Tuesday’s practice with a stiff back and a sore hip flexor, some wondered about his status for next Sunday’s regular season opener in Washington.
According to Jerry Jones, though, it is unlikely that Williams will be held out.
"I have no reason, the trainers have given me no indication that he won’t be (ready for the opener)," Jones said Wednesday, at the Cowboys’ kickoff luncheon, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
As Williams went down with an injury on Tuesday, another receiver, Dez Bryant, returned. The Cowboys will hold Bryant out of Thursday’s preseason game as well, which is to be expected; but, like Williams, Jones expects him to be ready for September 12, in Washington.
"He's got some conditioning work to do," Jones said. "He'll get some good work in between now and the opener, and that'll help his condition."
