Williams will wear a splint and likely take a pain-killing injection before the Thanksgiving game, the report said. He was able to catch passes in practice Tuesday, though he told the paper his finger "hurts bad."
Dallas hosts the Eagles on Thanksgiving.
Williams has struggled to emerge of late, following up a targetless performance in Week 11 with just one catch Sunday. He's managed just 37 yards on three receptions over his last three games. Williams will look to get back on track Thursday against the Eagles.
Williams had a high of just 77 yards through the season's first seven games, but had four games of double digit Fantasy scoring in that stretch, however he was incredible touchdown dependent, with six touchdowns in that span. After being held without a catch in Week 10 against the Jaguars, Williams has just 14 Fantasy points over the last four games, with just one touchdown.
Relying on touchdown-dependent players is always a risky strategy, and Williams is a great example of why that is. He simply isn't a big or consistent enough part of the team's offense to rely on, and he might not be worth owning in deeper Fantasy leagues at this point.
