Description: Williams broke his right shoulder blade in Sunday's victory at Arizona. He'll miss at least the rest of the regular season, though the team is holding out hope that he'll be able to return for the playoffs.
Insight: Williams isn't an IDP candidate anyway, but his absence takes a key figure out of one of the league's best run defenses. Michael Turner owners shouldn't even thinking about benching their stud back as a result -- if they even were in the first place. (SportsBuff.com)
