Ryan Williams will require surgery on his left shoulder and is done for the remainder of the season.
It's a rough blow for increasingly one of the league's most tough-luck players. Williams suffered the injury in last Thursday night's loss to the Rams. William Powell figures to be the favorite for carries in Arizona's backfield until Beanie Wells (turf toe) gets back in Week 12 or 13, although Powell is coming off a "head" injury. La'Rod Stephens-Howling and Alfonso Smith will also be in the mix for carries behind an offensive line that opens no holes. Williams will enter the 2013 season having not been a legitimately productive rusher since 2009, his redshirt freshman season at Virginia Tech. After also missing all of 2011 with a ruptured patellar tendon, Williams' long-term outlook is all sorts of cloudy.

Already dropped him a couple days ago, not surprised at all. Typical athlete optimism on a fubar situation. I'm not even going to venture a pickup in that backfield w/ the remaining guys... maybe in a deep league, Powell?

That's to bad. Looked like the kid was finally going to get a chance to show what he's got. Now he has got to battle back from a season ending injury in as many years

ESPN Insider:

The Arizona Cardinals have had some significant health problems in the RB corps this season, as ostensible starter Beanie Wells was placed on the IR/designated to return list with a toe problem, and LaRod Stephens-Howling has missed the past two contests owing to a hip-flexor injury. Things took a turn for the worse during the team's appearance on "Thursday Night Football," as second-year pro Ryan Williams injured his left shoulder in the fourth quarter. After the contest, Williams downplayed the severity of the injury.

"I didn't black out or anything," Williams declared, per AZCardinals.com. "No concussion or anything. My whole shoulder went down and went numb. So then I got up, figured it was something with my AC joint. I was like, 'At least it's not my leg,' so shot it up went back out there but coach wouldn't put me back in the game. But it's just something else I will have to overcome."

He will have to overcome it, but we also won't be seeing him on the field until the 2013 season. Cards HC Ken Whisenhunt revealed Monday that Williams needs shoulder surgery, which will end his 2012 season, according to Darren Urban of the team's website.

Stephens-Howling would appear to be the next man up -- if he himself is healthy enough -- in Week 6. If not, it'll be the William Powell-Alfonso Smith show against Buffalo.

Just tells you how bad that O line is in ARZ. 3 injured RBs, 1 injured QB, and hurting their really good D.
