PHOENIX - The father of Arizona Cardinals' player Dan Williams was killed in a car crash while on his way to watch the game, the organization said Sunday.
The Arizona Cardinals tweeted, "Please keep #AZCardinals NT Dan Williams in your thoughts. His father was killed in a car accident on way to watch #AZvsNO," Sunday morning.
The Cardinals said Williams did not make the trip to New Orleans due to a "family matter" in a blog posted Saturday evening.
Williams was drafted to the Arizona Cardinals during the team's first-round selection in the 2010 NFL Draft.
