Steelers TKO Two Miami Running Backs: Ricky Williams Done For The Year, Chatman Hurt As Well

In no way am I gloating about this, and I'm assuming Lawrence Timmons feels worse than anybody. In fact, this news saddens me because I was happy to see Ricky Williams back in the NFL. But, his comeback sure didn't last long. The Palm Beach Post is reporting that Ricky Williams is done for the year with a torn chest muscle. The injury is expected to take nearly 4 months to recover from.

I've heard some grumblings about Lawrence Timmons intentionally stepping on Williams. I don't buy it for one second. In my estimation, Ricky was just in the wrong place at the wrong time, and got stepped on by a 250 pound man who was probably wearing longer spikes than usual.

No report yet on Jesse Chatman, who also left last's night game with an injury. Tough, tough break for the Dolphins. They're down to their 4th string back at this point. When it rains, it pours, and unfortunately for the Miami organization and their fans, sunny skies are nowhere to be found on the horizon.
