Packers CB Tramon Williams The Latest To Be Hit With Flu-Like Symptoms
It looked as if the Packers had kicked the flu bug that had gone through a handful of members of the team a few weeks ago but on Thursday, veteran Green Bay cornerback Tramon Williams missed practice because he had flu-like symptoms.
“I really don't have feel for that one way or the other. He came in and obviously had flu symptoms. He was given medication and was sent home. We’ll probably know more in the morning,” said Packers coach Mike McCarthy on Williams’ status for the playoff game Saturday night against Minnesota.
The Packers have gone to great lengths to try minimize exposure to viruses – at least within their own facility. There’s obviously nothing they can do about exposure to stuff at stores and restaurants,
“They’ve done a good job of kind of disinfecting everything,” said rookie right tackle Don Barclay.
“We take flu shots – I don’t know if its required, I want to say it is,” said Packers tight end D.J. Williams. “Being up here in this climate and the weather changing all the time, yeah the flu has been spreading around.”
The Packers hope that Williams will be the last player to get sick as they begin their playoff drive. If all else fails and everyone else gets sick, it seems the Packers can at least count on one guy never getting sick.
“My immunity is crazy. I just won’t get sick. Watch,” said Williams. ”I’ve just have always been like that. The last time I got sick was real bad, when I was real young, maybe 10 years old. After that I can’t remember the last time I have been sick. I’ll go up to someone with the flu and give them a hug, I don’t worry about getting sick at all.”
