Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Williams has a torn hamstring. He first sustained a hamstring injury on Sept. 29, and has missed some time, though the injury wasn't thought to be this serious before Friday. Now, it seems unlikely that Williams will play again this season, given that the Buccaneers are currently 0-7 with virtually no chance at the playoffs.
Here's what else you may have missed from Friday:
There were plenty of fines on Friday. The Carolina Panthers and St. Louis Rams combined for nearly $50,000 in fines from their game. Notably, Chris Long was given a $15,750 fine for his antics. Several other big-name players were fined around the league, including Vincent Jackson of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and linebacker Brian Orakpo of the Washington Redskins. Click the link for the rest.
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles has been ruled out with a concussion, meaning Michael Vick is likely to start against the New York Giants. Vick is not 100 percent himself, as he is dealing with a hamstring injury. Vick looked fine playing last week, but if he suffered any kind of setback, it would be bad news for Philadelphia.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Darrelle Revis doesn't know if Greg Schiano has lost the locker room. On top of that, Revis said he didn't know if Schiano would be fired soon. Schiano is under fire for all kinds of reasons this season. He's led his team to an 0-7 record and the players do not seem to be a fan of his coaching style.
Denver Broncos running back Ronnie Hillman will not dress for Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins. C.J. Anderson will get the active spot in place of Hilman, who fumbled on a crucial play late in the fourth quarter of Denver's loss to the Indianapolis Colts. It's a tough break for the second-year player.
Mike Shanahan spoke on potentially trading Fred Davis on Friday and while he didn't say much, it seems as though he wasn't eliminating the possibility. Davis didn't play in Week 7 and that led many to question whether or not the Redskins would look into trading the tight end. Keeping him inactive keeps him away from potential injury.
