Cadillac sits out with spasms




LAKE BUENA VISTA -- Running back Cadillac Williams was held out out of the morning practice after complaining of back spasms. The injury is not considered serious and he may participate in the afternoon workout.

"'My neck just tightened up a bit out there and they sat me out,'' Williams said. ""It's really nothing.''

Running backs coach Art Valero said Williams had a heavy lifting day Thursday that might have contributed to the spasms.

In other news, tackle Chris Colmer will miss the season with a non-football related illness.

A third-round pick by the Bucs in 2005, Colmer apparently has a recurrence of Parsonage-Turner Syndrome, a nerve condition that forced him to miss the 2003 season at North Carolina State.

"We're really concerned about this because we never really heard of it to start with,''' said Bucs coach Jon Gruden. ""We were under the understanding that this was over. Hopefully he can come back and continue playing again.''
