CHARLOTTE, N.C.—It takes a lot to keep Damien Williams home from work. Practice is far from a chore for him, and few Dolphins players enjoy it as much as he does.
So when he missed two days last week because of an unspecified illness, there was no doubt it was serious. Williams declined to give many specifics, but hinted that he lost weight and said he needed intravenous fluids when he was sick.
When he finally returned for practice Saturday, he still wasn’t back to normal.
