Tampa Bay Buccaneers' Mike Williams questionable for New Orleans Saints

Tampa Bay Buccaneers rookie receiver Mike Williams ran a few routes on Friday, but the team still listed him as questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints with a foot injury.

Williams leads the Bucs with 19 catches for 238 yards and three touchdowns. Despite his status, coach Raheem Morris still sounded confident Friday that Williams would play.

"He's got a little foot issue,'' Morris said. "He's had some problems running this week and he's been out there on a limited basis a little bit this week. We missed him for one day and we have to list his game status. He'll be one of those decisions you've got to make in the training room. We've got a walk-through tomorrow and some of those things we've got to deal with. Hopefully, we'll get him out there and be ready to go.

"He looked good. He went out there, he ran a couple of routes. But you're talking about a receiver. You're talking about the delicasy of a foot. You're talking about a speed, skill position and being able to go out there and be 100 percent. He's a tough guy, he's got a lot of will, he wants to play and he's young. That's part of our football team. I've still got to list his status, though.''

Also listed as questionable is CB Elbert Mack and defensive end Kyle Moore (shoulder). C Jeff Faine (quad) is out. FB Earnest Graham (hamstring), S Sean Jones (back), LB Niko Koutouvides (ankle) and tight end Kellen Winslow (knee) are probable.

    TORONTO — Two pitches RHP Chris Archer didn't execute are the ones that stood out Thursday as Josh Donaldson hit them out of the park. But the two solo home runs aside, Archer turned in a sterling outing that went atop the pile of good pitching the Rays keep wasting.
