"There is still no activity, so we may have something after the game, certainly [Tuesday] when we get here. We'll see what the doctor thinks," Williams said. "He has a pulled hammy and he is not doing anything strength-wise at this point. So it's just kind of a checkup."

It sounds like Zimmerman will not be back until at least September. As Zimmerman said last week, he is not going to rush to get back on the field.
