Colts lose another offensive lineman to injury

August 6, 1997

ANDERSON, Ind. (AP) _ A day after saying his injury wasn’t serious, the Indianapolis Colts announced Wednesday that offensive lineman Clay Williams will miss the entire season with a broken right leg.

The 6-foot-6, 300-pound lineman from Indiana was hoping to make the Colts after spending part of last season on the team’s practice squad. Coach Lindy Infante said Williams will spend the season on the injured list.

Williams’ injury is particularly troubling because the Colts need offensive linemen. Infante said there is a chance they will try to find another lineman because they are down to 10, not counting first-round draft pick Tarik Glenn, who has not signed a contract.

Ten players didn’t suit up for Wednesday’s practice because of assorted injuries, including offensive lineman Tony Mandarich and wide receivers Sean Dawkins and Aaron Bailey.

On a positive note, running back Lamont Warren was back at practice after bruising his knee Tuesday.
