Nick Williams drawing inspiration from Devin Hester

Nick Williams was already in good spirits after catching a career-high four passes in Saturday's win over Buffalo. Then his spirits went soaring even higher when he saw legendary return specialist Devin Hester corral  a 34-yard touchdown reception in the Chicago Bears' 34-18 win over the Dallas Cowboys on Monday night.

Hester's role with the Bears is similar to the one Williams has with the Bears as his main priority comes as a game-breaking return man but he is always looking to become more involved as a receiver.

It was clear when I spoke to Williams yesterday that he did get a charge out of seeing a special-teams ace making a play on offense.

"I love watching Hester play and I think he has 18 career returns for touchdowns and that is ridiculous, it is like some video game statistics but any time there is a returner/receiver playing on Monday night I watch those guys first to be entertained and then to try to learn something from them," Williams said.

I thought I would pass on a couple of links about Rutgers players expecting to return to action on Saturday when the Scarlet Knights host UConn.

The first is on sophomore RB Savon Huggins who has missed time with a back injury and the under the radar response to Huggins' return.

The other one is on defensive lineman Michael Larrow who was suspended for the first four games of the season for the dreaded "violation of team rules."
