As he continues rehabbing a serious knee injury, Ryan Williams will have a much, much, much more important job to perform in the coming months. And years.
The Miami quarterback announced via Twitter that he and his wife, Deanna, are now the proud parents of a bouncing — and rather large — baby boy. Roman Louis Williams, the first child for both mom and dad, was born July 29 and weighed in at a healthy nine pounds even.
The couple had announced back in March that Deanna was expecting.
Here’s a picture of the newest member of the Williams clan, courtesy of the newly-minted father’s Instagram account:
Sincere congratulations to the new parents from all of us.
Williams suffered a torn ACL in early April and underwent surgery shortly thereafter, meaning the prohibitive favorite to replace Stephen Morris as the starter entering spring practice won’t hit the practice field through at least September. The earliest Williams is expected to begin participating in practice is at some point in October, if then.
With Williams sidelined for the foreseeable future, Jake Heaps, the Kansas transfer, and Kevin Olsen are expected to be the two main combatants for the starting job, at least early on. For his part, Heaps has been quoted as saying he didn’t come to The U “to be the backup.”
