Cadillac to be inactive Sunday



RB Cadillac Williams is back on the active roster, but he'll almost certainly be inactive against the Vikings on Sunday.

That's the word from coach Jon Gruden, who just conducted the team's final practice of the week at One Buc Place.

"I don't foresee (Williams) being a part of this game," Gruden said. "We'll see how the next 48 hours unfold. We seem to have had some injuries in the backfield. If everything goes as planned, I don't see him being active."

Williams was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform List on Wednesday after spending 14 months rehabbing a severe right knee injury. But Earnest Graham (knee) looked good for the second straight day today and Warrick Dunn (back) appears to be progressing nicely, so there doesn't seem to be a need to rush Williams into action this week.

Williams is okay with that.

"I knew coming in that my chance of playing wasn't too likely," he said. "It's not a big surprise."
