October 25, 1999

NEW YORK (AP) _ New York Jets defensive back Kevin Williams has been taken off a respirator, but will remain indefinitely at Lenox Hill Hospital.

Williams, suffering from a severe throat infection that affected his lungs, has been hospitalized for 2 1/2 weeks. But the team said Monday that Williams has improved.

``Kevin is doing well, thank goodness,″ said Jets coach Bill Parcells. ``All the reports are good and he is off the respirator. Things have taken a turn for better, but he still will be there for some time, according to the doctors.″

The second-year player was placed on the reserve, non-football injury list last week and is out for the season.
