It remains to be seen just how much of an impact receiver Roydell Williams will have this upcoming season, as reports says he’s having a tough time coming back from a broken ankle. ProFootballTalk.com is reporting that the ankle injury has kept Williams from doing much at all this offseason, and that his starting position may end up going to Justin McCareins.
“It is frustrating,” Coach Jeff Fisher told the Tennesseean. “But his injury was significant; his surgery was significant. We knew it was going to take some time. No one has panicked. Roydell knows what to do and he is working hard. When he is ready he’ll be right back where he was.”
Williams in 16 games last season pulled in 55 catches for 719 yards and four scores. In three seasons with the Titans he’s played in 40 games, making 84 catches for 1139 yards and six TD’s. The 55 catches a season ago was by far his career high, as was his yards and TD catches.
