Cowboys receiver Terrance Williams is facing a suspension stemming from his May arrest for public intoxication. The suspension is expected to be two to four games.
The charges against Williams were dismissed after he completed an alcohol awareness program and paid for the damages to a light pole that he caused when he wrecked his Lamborghini.
Via Sports Day:
There’s an anticipation that the impending suspension for an incident in May involving the Cowboys receiver will fall in the range of two to four games, sources said. Since no decision has been rendered at this stage — a source said the NFL has yet to notify Williams of a ruling in writing — it’s unlikely any action will be taken before the Cowboys face Seattle this weekend.
The league is reluctant to issue a ruling late in the week after allowing a player to practice with his team to prepare for an upcoming game. This sensitivity to competitive fairness was evident in the NFL’s prolonged battle with Ezekiel Elliott last season.
While Williams should be clear to play against the Seahawks there’s a sense the hammer can drop at any point going forward. That’s part of the reason the club added Brice Butler earlier in the week, giving the Cowboys the unusually high number of seven receivers on the active roster.
Two to four games for public intoxication? Yet Jameis Winston was given three games for grabbing an Uber driver’s crotch? Only in the NFL.
