Steve Wyche of the AJC reports that running back Warrick Dunn underwent back surgery on July 21, and will miss the next three to four weeks. In his absence, second-year back Jerious Norwood is expected to take snaps with the first team.
Dunn’s injury may cause him to miss several if not all of the preseason, and might carry over into the early weeks of the regular season.
Wyche also reports that linebacker Demorrio Williams is cleared to practice on Thursday’s start to training camp. Williams, who tore his pectoral muscle earlier this off-season was expected to miss some time during the regular season, but his rehabilitation is ahead of schedule.
