Golden Nuggets: Anthony Dixon to Make the Cut? Parys Haralson Misses Practice

I'm running late and will have to blast through this edition of the Nuggets. There's no major news any way. The big names for this morning are Anthony Dixon and Kyle Williams. There's some speculation that Dixon may have saved his job by taking on some fullback duties. If he does make the team, he can probably send a Christmas ham to Demarcus Dobbs for clearing up a roster spot. As for Kyle Williams, well....I haven't been to church in a while, but let's just say there will be a lot of praying going on around this neck of the woods when he trots back to receive his first punt.

Also of note is that Parys Haralson missed practice today. Normally, this wouldn't make the news, but in light of all our other injuries at OLB, this could be cause for concern. At the least, it gives all the other OLBs that are currently on the roster an extra chance to prove their worth. On to the links...
