Cavaliers welcome back Mo Williams to practice; cut roster to 17

The Cleveland Cavaliers received a boost during Wednesday’s workouts.

Guard Mo Williams made it through his first full practice of the preseason after being slowed down by a groin injury.

Williams strained his groin shortly before the Cavaliers opened training camp. He is expected to carry more of the scoring load this season following LeBron James’ departure.

Cleveland plays in Pittsburgh against San Antonio Thursday (tonight) before hosting CSKA Moscow on Saturday in Quicken Loans Arena.

Head coach Byron Scott has said that forward Anderson Varejao is questionable for the Spurs’ game. He has been sidelined with an ankle sprain and recently missed nine days of training camp following his grandfather’s death down in Brazil.

The Cavs have sliced their roster from 19 to 17 players by waiving guard Cedric Jackson of Cleveland State and forward Tasmin Mitchell of LSU.

University of Dayton linebacker Joe Ries was named Pioneer Football League Defensive Player of the Week after the Flyers’ 21-20 win at San Diego.

Ries, a redshirt senior from Cincinnati, was the game’s top tackler with 10 stops. But most important of all. he came up with the two critical fourth-down plays on San Diego’s last two possessions in the fourth quarter to preserve Dayton’s one-point advantage, and eventually, the win.

With 7:24 remaining, teammate Devon Langhorst made the initial hit on San Diego Toreros running back Phil Morelli but Ries finished the play, keeping the University of San Diego workhorse from getting a second-effort first down on fourth-and-less-than-one at the Dayton 30. Then, with 48 seconds left on a fourth-and-three at midfield, Ries came on a blitz and got a hand on Mason Mills’ pass, knocking it to the ground and keeping the Flyers undefeated in the Pioneer Football League.

Ries, a team captain who has now started 29 games in his career, is third for Dayton in tackles this season (33) and is tied for second in passes batted down (3). The 2006 graduate of St. Xavier High School is a two-time First Team All-Pioneer Football League performer. UD leads FCS football in rushing defense, allowing just 69.7 yards a game.

This is the third time in four weeks a Dayton football player has been selected PFL Defensive Player of the Week. The others are Brandon Wingeier and James Vercammen.

The Flyers are 5-1 overall, 3-0 in PFL play. Dayton is tied for first place in the league with Jacksonville.

Dayton is in Indianapolis this Saturday playing Butler University at the Butler Bowl. Game time is 1:00 p.m.
