Mike Williams sits out practice with sore knee

Bucs rookie WR Mike Williams did not practice Thursday due to some knee soreness, though coach Raheem Morris hopes he’ll be ready to go Sunday against the Redskins.

Williams has been Tampa Bay’s top receiver this season with 51 receptions for 769 yards.

"He's got a sore knee, has been fighting through it for a couple weeks," Morris said. "He's a tough guy, he goes out and he plays, right now it's little bit sore, just got to get him to tommorrow, and see what he can do tomorrow. Get him through Saturday, see what he can do Saturday and hopefully get him in the game."

LB Quincy Black (ankle) also did not practice for the second straight day. Morris said he's not ready to count Black out for Sunday, but added that LBs Dekoda Watson and Adam Hayward would see some action if that's the case.

"It's a war of attrition," Morris said. "Don't blink."
