Roydell Williams "Going to Have to Work Uphill"

In case you didn't know, Mike Heimerdinger doesn't play around.  Roydell Williams, who broke his ankle in practice the week before the playoff game last season, still isn't able to participate in practice.  Heimerdinger obviously doesn't care what Roydell did last season:

"I don't know anything about him,'' Heimerdinger said. "I've done with Roydell what I do with everybody and that's not to make up my mind until I see them. I don't know what all those guys were asked to do last year or how they were asked to run routes or any of the things Roydell has done. I know he has been successful and done some things, but until I see him and see what he does, I am not going to make up my mind on Roydell at all.''

I know Heimerdinger is a tough guy, but I still think Roydell will be given a little different consideration when he is able to come back from his injury for 2 reasons:

  1. He had a really good season last year
  2. He isn't on the field because of an injury

Accoring to Fisher, Roydell is doing everything he needs to be doing to get back on the field as soon as possible:

"It is frustrating,'' Coach Jeff Fisher said. "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.''

Mel Kiper called Roydell one of the best picks of the 2005 draft.  Last season he really started to live up to that billing.  Hopefully he can get back on the field soon and continue his progression.
