Cary Williams leaves Eagles-Patriots with hamstring injury

After perhaps the most fitting pick-six in the Eagles’ illustrious preseason history, Cary Williams has exited the Eagles-Patriots preseason matchup with a hamstring injury.

With Williams out for the rest of the game and new Eagle Nolan Carroll out tonight, we do get to see whether Brandon Boykin can have as much success as an outside corner as he does in the nickel, a spot where he is arguably the best player in the league.

Update 11:51 PM EST- As we learned tonight, Curtis Marsh isn’t a very good cornerback. We also have a bit clearer diagnosis on Williams, who is injured, but it doesn’t appear to be too significant. Hopefully it is a lower hamstring injury, which tends to nag a bit, but not prevent you form being effective. Upper hamstring, which Michael Vick had last year, is much more painful.
