  Patriots | Michael Williams injury update    Thu Jun 9, 05:49 PM

Updating a previous report, New England Patriots TE Michael Williams (knee) suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in practice Wednesday, June 8. No other ligaments were damaged, according to a source, but he will seek a second opinion to determine how to fix the ACL surgically.

Footballguys view: We weren't expecting anything from him anyway because if it's not Rob Gronkowski then it will be Martellus Bennett. Gronkowski is a TE1 of course and we think Bennett is a decent TE2.

  Patriots | Martellus Bennett dodges a bullet    Wed Jun 8, 10:42 PM

New England Patriots TE Martellus Bennett (knee) had a minor injury scare at one point in practice Wednesday, June 8, during minicamp. The veteran was attended to by the training staff, focusing on his left knee. After a brief absence he was able to return to drills and team work. Bennett worked with FB James Develin and fellow TEs A.J. Derby and Michael Williams on blocking drills.

Footballguys view: The Patriots are going to be able to do a lot with Bennett and Rob Gronkowski this year. Bennett has yet to fully play up to his potential, but the opportunity is there with a high-powered offense like the Patriots.

  Lions | Michael Williams moves to OT    Wed May 21, 10:37 AM

Detroit Lions TE Michael Williams has moved to offensive tackle.

Footballguys view: The Lions still have inexperienced starting offensive tackles in LaAdrian Waddle and Riley Reiff. Brandon Pettigrew being brough back will help, and converting Williams to a full-time tackle can't hurt. Blocking was already his strong suit.
