Williams’ calf injury continuing to improve

Posted by Larry Mayer on August 19, 2013 – 5:15 pm

Sidelined since suffering a calf injury July 31 in training camp, veteran middle linebacker D.J. Williams continues to work to get back onto the practice field.

“He is improving,” said coach Marc Trestman. “I’m going to meet with him this week to just kind of spend some time with him and see where he is. But he feels like he’s getting better. We feel he’s getting better.”

With less than three weeks until the Sept. 8 season opener against the Bengals, the clock is ticking.

“We’re getting closer to the season and his conditioning now becomes an issue,” Trestman said. “We think that eventually he’ll be back certainly. We just don’t know when. It’s just an improving situation.

“He’s on schedule to come back over the time period that we expected him to. Of course, he expected to come back a lot quicker and most players do of his caliber. So we’ll see what happens over the next few weeks and hopefully we’ll get him out here to practice in the next 12-14 days or better.”

Defensive tackle Henry Melton and receiver Earl Bennett also remained sidelined with concussions.

“Henry and Earl are getting better,” Trestman said. “It’s still day-to-day and we’re keeping our fingers crossed there that it will continue to improve as it has.”

Other players who sat out Monday’s practice included long-snapper Patrick Mannelly (rib), tackle Jonathan Scott (knee), defensive end Cheta Ozougwu (hamstring), quarterback Matt Blanchard (hand), running back Harvey Unga (rib) and defensive tackle Corvey Irvin (ankle).
