Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Terrance Williams will play against the Denver Broncos on Sunday afternoon in spite of tweaking his ankle during the Cowboys’ Week 1 victory over the New York Giants last week, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Also per Rapoport, Denver’s Ronald Leary, a former Cowboy, and Darian Stewart are expected to play against Dallas, barring setbacks.

Williams caught six passes for 68 yards in the Cowboys’ 19-3 win last Sunday.

The 28-year-old Williams, who played his college football at Baylor University, was originally selected by Dallas in the third round (74th pick overall) of the 2013 NFL Draft.

He has been a steady contributor for the Cowboys ever since.

Williams enjoyed an impressive rookie campaign, hauling in 44 receptions for 736 yards and five touchdowns while playing in all 16 games and making eight starts.

The following year, Williams started all 16 games for Dallas, snaring 37 balls for 621 yards and a career-high eight scores.

He then set career highs for catches and receiving yards in 2015, bringing down 52 passes for 840 yards. Williams also reached the end zone three times that season.

Last year, Williams took a bit of a step back and had his least productive year yet, finishing with 44 receptions for 594 yards and four touchdowns.

The Cowboys are coming off of a surprising and impressive 2016 campaign in which they won 13 games and captured the NFC East Division crown. They proceeded to fall to the Green Bay Packers in the Divisional Round of the playoffs.

Dallas has made the playoffs just twice since 2010.

The Cowboys will take on the Broncos in the Mile High City at 4:25 p.m. ET Sunday. You can catch the action on Fox.
