The Oakland Raiders defensive line coach will take time off after the death of his four-year-old son.

Terrell Williams' son Tyson became ill this month. The Raiders are not commenting on what the illness was. The little boy had just celebrated his fourth birthday.

Raiders head coach Dennis Allen says Williams will be allowed to take off as much time as he needs.
