Former All Black Williams injured in Japan

Former All Black Sonny Bill Williams injured his shoulder on Saturday playing for the Panasonic White Knights in Japan.
Williams was taken to a hospital with his right arm in a sling after Panasonic beat the Kintetsu Liners 23-20. Williams scored a try in the first minute but was taken out six minutes later after a collision with a Kintetsu player.
After having an MRI, Williams said on Twitter that the injury was a small tear, adding: "Hurt it today... results back nothing serious."
Williams quit the All Blacks to pursue more lucrative opportunities in Japan and Australia. He is reportedly earning $1.2 million for his 12-game stint in Japan. Afterward, Williams will play in Australia's National Rugby League.
