Cary Williams' Friday evening got off to a nearly perfect start when he intercepted Tom Brady and scored a touchdown. Then, it took a turn for the worse.

Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer filled fans in on the details:

As ESPN Stats & Info noted before the injury, Williams' performance for the Philadelphia Eagles was business as usual against Brady:

Williams has been in the news recently after making the following comments regarding Philadelphia's joint practice with the New England Patriots, via Berman:

They are cheaters. ... I give them all the credit in the world, but one fact remains: They haven't won a Super Bowl since they got caught. ... To me, it's not benefiting us, because they've already proven who they are. That's their history. I don't like them, not only because of that. I just don't like them.

Williams has been one of the more durable defensive backs in the entire NFL in recent years, so this injury is sure to turn some heads. He played in all 16 games for the Eagles last season and all 16 games for the Baltimore Ravens in 2011 and in 2012.

Last year, he totaled three interceptions, a sack and a forced fumble for the Eagles, and the hope is that he will be a productive member of the secondary this year. Seeing as how it is still relatively early in the preseason, Philadelphia will likely use caution in this situation.
