Williams Cleared to Practice (gets "green light" from doctor)
Williams cleared to practice

In a phone interview, Terry Murray said Justin Williams got the “green light” from doctors last night and will be able to participate in practice tomorrow. Assuming all goes well in the next couple days of practice, the decision would be in Williams’ hands as to whether he wants to play with his still-recovering shoulder, which won’t be 100 percent until the offseason. More on this, and Murray’s thoughts on the first-round series, to come…
[Also, Murray said Kyle Clifford is OK after last night's fight.]
WELL NOT ALWAYS (he bases it on what his patient tells him)
You know Williams wants to contribute and what injury have any of us ever had that we didnt want to come back early from, and probably came back sooner than we should have without all the therapy we needed. (OK that was just me, maybe not you)
But you get what I'm saying. He walked on the ice yesterday to give his jersey away and even then he looked liked he was holding his shoulder close in. If he cant hurt it to the point of jepoardizing his next season, then give it a shot.
I just think its a risk, not that I've never taken one of those before
Great to hear. I hope Moller still plays though, just not on the top three lines. Be great experience for him and help him stay ready if we have another injury.
Feel great for WIlliams too. After all his injury troubles, really not be fair to him to have a great, and largely healthy season, and then miss the playoffs with an injury. Guys a great talent and even harder worker and he battles through injuries with great character. I'm proud to call him a member of this team.
