    ....Williamson not only has been dealing with the death of his maternal grandmother -- a fact the Vikings acknowledged -- but agent David Canter revealed Friday that Williamson's older brother, Carlton, was involved in an automobile accident in September and has been in and out of a coma in a Georgia hospital......

    I am saddened by his loss on a personal basis. Family obligations come before ANYTHING.

    However, this is can be a benefit to team performance. In the first place, I do not understand why he is still on the team. Secondly, this may give another player a chance to impress. Thirdly, the number of dropped balls may decrease.

    That gives everyone else a chance to step up. Who knows maybe AA gets a few balls thrown at him on Sunday. Troy Williamson is still a liability. Ready to shank a catch at any given moment.

    Re: Troy Williamson on family leave

    i like how he is doing well this year and everyone still bags on him, and no one mentions bobby wade drops a bunch of passes or sidney rice dropping a couple of those slant routes.

    Well i hope everything goes ok for him and his fam

    Thanks josdin00

    Kind of insensitive, huh?

    That is one thing I hate about sports, many fans think of players as cattle.

    Good luck to Troy, get everything squared away, come back and catch some TDs when you're ready.

    Troy has play magnificent this year compared to last.
    But he still doesn't look close to an NFL caliber WR, he still can't catch the ball with his hands. On nearly every catch he cradles the ball against his body. This negates his YAC, as you can't really be running full speed if you're going to cradle the ball against your chest. Nor is this the best way to catch the ball.

    Not to mention he gets lost in deep routes and can't adjust to the ball on said deep routes..

    I think that because he's still so gun shy about dropping pases he tries to give himself every advantage.
