Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Carnell “Cadillac” Williams, the one time rookie of the year, is not willing to let injuries define his career. Williams who spoke at length with Tom Balog, of the Herald-Tribune.com.
“I’m not out to get payback or show anybody I’m back,” Williams said. “I’m just chasing something that I love to do. This is what I do and this is what I want to do. Therefore, some injury, I just don’t want that to define my career. So hopefully from here on out, things will be good.”
