Titan Williams out for playoffs

Thursday, January 3, 2008 at 3:11pm

For the second time since qualifying for the playoffs, the Tennessee Titans have lost a top pass-catching target.

Receiver Roydell Williams underwent surgery Thursday to have screws and a plate put in his leg after breaking his right tibia bone in Wednesday’s practice.

Williams is tied for the team lead in receptions with 55, along with Justin Gage. His 719 receiving yards are second on the team.

Williams joins tight end Bo Scaife on the shelf as well, as he suffered a liver laceration in Sunday night’s 16-10 win over Indianapolis.
