Williams, drafted by the Seahawks in the fifth round this year, tweaked his knee at training last Friday and has sat out the last two practice days. It has been disappointing for Seattle fans, who are yet to seen 'Tha Monstar' do what he does best in pads. From all reports Williams came to camp in great shape and was ready to make an impact, giving himself the best opportunity to land on the 53-man roster. So how will this affect the Brisbane native defensive tackle? Well, not too much at this stage. It's only early days in camp and Seahawks coaches and staff will really get to see what Williams has to offer once preseason games kick off. It is frustrating for Williams, however, especially as a rookie. No doubt the last thing you'd want is to watch fellow first-year players out on the practice field go about their business when you're sitting on the sideline. At this stage the injury does not appear to be of major concern. Respected Seahawks blogger Brian Nemhauser from hawkblogger.com suggested the club would maybe keep the Aussie lineman out of padded workouts to prevent further injury. https://twitter.com/hawkblogger/status/362030192841080832 Williams will be in competition with veteran defensive tackle Tony McDaniel, fellow rookie Jordan Hill and Jaye Howard throughout camp, with head coach Pete Carroll and his crew devising a rotation whereby each player will get reps with the first team. At this stage Williams will be competing at 3-technique in the base defence. After last Thursday's practice, Carroll spelled out to Seattle media how the rotations will work. "It's not going to be a competition we're going to decide quickly, because it's going to take a while to show those guys," Carroll said. "So we have a rotation in mind, kind of like we (did) with the quarterbacks last year, to see over a long period of time which guy elevates. "All those guys are different players, so we got to see which one fits and how it works, but we have to be patient to figure that out." Reports from camp suggest McDaniel has been a clear standout so far, which makes Williams' unavailability even more frustrating. But it's far too early to hit the panic button just yet. The Seahawks had a day off today and will be back in action tomorrow. We will continue to closely track Williams as he goes through training camp and into the preseason games.
