Rams | Williams injury update

Thu, 22 Dec 2005 17:34:35 -0800

Nick Wagoner, of StLouisRams.com, reports St. Louis Rams TE Roland Williams (knee) expressed optimism over his rehab and recovery from a major knee injury that has sidelined him this season. "The rehab is going spectacular, ahead of game plan," Williams said. "Dr. Patella and Dr. Lyndon Gross, my cousin, did a great job rehabbing and getting after it. You are either in a storm or coming out of one so we are coming through the storm. I'm going to be all right." Williams admitted to gaining about 12 pounds during his rehab and is anxious to resume his typical workouts. "I will be back in probably May," Williams said. "I'll be back to 100 percent. I am walking, I am out and about. I can lift it, I can bend it, I can go. I'm just getting back in shape."

Rams | Williams to Have Surgery Monday

Sat, 08 Oct 2005 19:35:16 -0700

Jim Thomas, of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, reports St. Louis Rams TE Roland Williams will undergo knee surgery Monday, Oct. 10. "I tore the ACL, PCL, MCL - the big three," Williams said, referring to the anterior cruciate, posterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments. "So I have to let the swelling go down, and go get that surgery on Monday." Williams feels he will be back quicker than the normal recovery time for the injury. "Some people say eight months, some people say 12 months," Williams said. "But I think consistent with everything else in my life, I'll beat the odds. So I'll be back as soon as possible."
