Williams has not been with the team this week in Florida, while the Red Birds prepare for their game against the Buccaneers.
Williams' father, Thomas, was killed in a car accident last Friday near Jackson, Miss., while driving to New Orleans for the Cardinals game against the Saints. Williams did not travel to Louisiana with the team and missed that game, a 31-7 setback to the Saints.
The funeral will be on Saturday in Memphis, Tenn., a team spokesman stated.
To this point,few details about the accident have come to light. According to reports, Williams' mother and sister were also in the car but are expected to survive.
An Arizona Cardinals team spokesman said arrangements are being made for Williams' teammates to attend the service. There is no timetable for Williams' return at this time.
Arizona safety Rashad Johnson did not practice yesterday. The tip of his left middle finger was severed late in the second quarter last Sunday against the Saints. Rookie linebacker Kevin Minter (hamstring) also did not participate in practice.
Wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald (hamstring) fully practiced for the first time in two weeks, which is a big lift for a team looking for some good news. Veteran running back Rashard Mendenhall (toe) was limited and defensive end Ronald Talley (wrist) practiced in full yesterday.
