Cowboys' Connor Williams: On track for Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams reiterated Tuesday that he's begun on-field exercises in his rehab from a torn ACL, Alex Marvez of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

Williams is now four months removed from the injury that he suffered in the Cowboys' Thanksgiving loss to the Bills. He told Marvez that he's making strong progress and is still on track to play Week 1 of the 2020 season. If healthy, he's expected to assume the starting left guard role.

Cowboys' Connor Williams: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cowboys will place Williams (knee) on injured reserve Sunday, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.

Williams suffered a torn ACL during the Cowboys' Thanksgiving loss to the Bills, and he'll spend the remainder of the season on injured reserve as a result. In a corresponding move, the Cowboys have signed Caleb Benenoch to the 53-man roster.

Cowboys' Connor Williams: Suffers torn ACL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams is out for the season after being diagnosed with a torn ACL on Friday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

The 22-year-old sustained the injury during Thursday's loss to the Bills and is now lost for the season. Williams will undergo surgery within the next few weeks. Xavier Su'a-Filo is set to step into the starting role at left guard for the Cowboys.

Cowboys' Connor Williams: Ruled out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (knee) has been ruled out for the remainder of Thursday's game against the Bills, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Williams returned for one play after halftime but immediately departed and has since been ruled out. Xavier Su'a-Filo has taken over for the Texas product.

Cowboys' Connor Williams: Exits with knee injury Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (knee) is questionable to return to Thursday's game with the Bills, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

It is not clear if this is an aggravation of Williams' previous knee injury or a different one altogether. Xavier Su'a-Filo replaced the 22-year-old when he was sidelined in Week 11 and likely will do so again.

Cowboys' Connor Williams: Good to go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Patriots, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

As expected, Williams will return to the lineup less than two weeks after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery. The 2018 second-rounder will start at left guard against a strong Patriots defensive front.

Cowboys' Connor Williams: Making strong recovery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (knee) is expected to play in Sunday's game against the Patriots, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Williams underwent arthroscopic knee surgery Nov. 11, and as evidenced by this news, seems to be making a remarkable recovery as he was originally a candidate for injured reserve. If Williams does suit up, he will likely assume his normal role as the team's starting left guard. Official word on Williams' status will arrive an hour and a half prior to kickoff.

Cowboys' Connor Williams: Officially questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's tilt against the Patriots, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

Williams strung together three consecutive practices with a limited workload to close out the week and is looking like a game-time decision Sunday. Xavier Su'a-Filo would presumably be in line to replace him at left guard should he ultimately end up not playing.

Cowboys' Connor Williams: Logs another practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (knee) is participating in Thursday's practice, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Williams was listed as a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, and he appears to be headed for a similar designation on Thursday's injury report. The starting left guard is working to recover from arthroscopic knee surgery undergone November 11, so it wouldn't be much of a surprise if he were ultimately ruled out for Week 12, but it's certainly encouraging to see him making quick progress. Xavier Su'a-Filo will slot into the starting lineup as long as Williams is unable to go.

Cowboys' Connor Williams: Undergoes knee surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams underwent arthroscopic knee surgery Tuesday, but there's optimism he'll avoid injured reserve, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Fortunately for the Cowboys, Xavier Su'a-Filo is a capable backup and he's the presumed starter in Williams' absence. It sounds like the hope is for the latter to return in time to make a late-season playoff push.

Cowboys' Connor Williams: Active Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (knee) is active for Thursday's game against the Redskins, David Helman of DallasCowboys.com reports.

Williams was limited throughout the week as he earned the questionable tag, but he'll be available for Thursday's contest.

Cowboys' Connor Williams: Suiting up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Falcons, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Williams underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee a few weeks ago and is expected to be limited despite his active status. Look for Williams to operate as the top backup at guard behind Zack Martin and Xavier Su'a-Filo.

Cowboys' Connor Williams: Likely to dress as backup Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (knee), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons, is expected to be available to play, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.

While Williams looks ready to return to the field after requiring arthroscopic surgery on his right knee less than two weeks ago, he'll be eased into the mix in a backup capacity. When Williams was sidelined in last week's win over the Eagles, Xavier Su'a-Filo stepped in as the starting left guard and was impressive, allowing him to garner another assignment. With that in mind, don't expect Williams to see many snaps Sunday unless Su'a-Filo or Zack Martin (knee) get injured or require a breather.

Cowboys' Connor Williams: Questionable for Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (knee) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Williams was a limited participant in practice all week, and could be a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt against Atlanta. The rookie second-round pick underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee last week, and appears to be progressing towards a speedy recovery. If Williams is unable to suit up Week 11, one of Adam Redmond or Xavier Su'a-Filo will slot in at the starting left guard position.

Cowboys' Connor Williams: Considered day-to-day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Jason Garrett called Williams (knee) "day-to-day" Monday, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Williams underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee last Wednesday, and he does not appear in line to miss much time as he recovers. Williams seems to have a real shot of suiting up against the Falcons on Sunday if he's able to return to practice this week. If Williams remains sidelined for any amount of time, expect one of Adam Redmond or Xavier Su'a-Filo to serve as the Cowboys' starting left guard.

Cowboys' Connor Williams: Headed for surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams will have arthroscopic surgery on his right knee performed Wednesday, but he could return as soon as Nov. 18 against Atlanta, Todd Archer of ESPN reports.

Williams' knee injury surfaced during Monday's game against the Titans, but it appears he's avoided serious damage. While he remains on the sideline, look for either Adam Redmond or Xavier Su'a-Filo to take over at left guard for the Cowboys.

Cowboys' Connor Williams: Dealing with knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams suffered a knee injury during Monday's loss to the Titans and could be facing arthroscopic surgery, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports.

According to head coach Jason Garrett, Williams managed to play through the injury Monday night but said it flared up Tuesday. The rookie left guard has started all eight games this season. Xavier Sua-Filo would be an option to fill in if Williams misses an extended period of time.
