Everywhere I read had him looking really good, strong, and with a good burst...per roto:
Ricky Williams ran for 31 yards on five carries as the Dolphins lost their preseason opener to the Bucs 17-6.
Williams has been the Dolphins most impressive offensive player all offseason, and it held true tonight. Ricky made some highlight reel runs and showed a good burst while Ronnie Brown, being brought along slowly, managed just four yards on three carries.
and per nfl.com
What we learned ...
Ricky impressive in return: Ricky Williams, who was injured in the only game he played in 2007, looked quick and strong Saturday. He made some nice cuts and showed a good burst while gaining 31 yards on five carries.
I think it bodes well that they intend on running the ball early and often in games, and if Ronnie has to take things slow as most expect, don't be surprised to see Ricky see a few 20 carry games early in the year, but I would like someone to chime in that watched to clarify if these reports are true.
