Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Terrance Williams walked off the field with trainers on the final day of mandatory minicamp with what was described by the team as a bruised left elbow.

Williams was hurt in a collision with safety Barry Church during on-field drills.

No. 1 wide receiver Dez Bryant, not on the field during a contract dispute because his one-year, $12.8 million franchise tender is unsigned, could gain significant leverage if the injury turns out to be significant.

As of Thursday afternoon, the seriousness of the elbow injury was uncertain but the Cowboys sounded optimistic after X-rays revealed no damage. The team was concerned about nerve damage, according to NFL Network.

Williams had 37 receptions and eight touchdowns last season, when he emerged as a vital third-down target for Romo.
