Williams To Debut Against Oakland

Terrance Williams missed the Hall of Fame Game after taking a blow to the head in practice Friday



    Rookie wide receiver Terrance Williams missed the preseason opener on Sunday night after being rocked by a hit in practice on Friday, when the third round pick’s helmet made contact with cornerback Brandon Underwood as he tried to make a play in a passing drill.

    But after the 24-20 win over the Dolphins in the Hall of Fame Game, Williams said he had undergone and passed concussion tests, and that he plans on making his Cowboys debut in this week’s preseason match-up with the Oakland Raiders.

    They were just being cautious,” Williams said, per the Dallas Morning News. “I’m fine.”

    Head coach Jason Garrett described Williams as day-to-day when asked about his status on Sunday, but he, too, believes the Baylor product will be ready for the Raiders game Friday and brushed off the injury as a minor one.

    “We don’t think what he has is a serious issue,” Garrett said.
