American football player Roy Williams will return to wearing a visor with his helmet on Sunday, according to a report from the Dallas Morning News.

The Dallas Cowboys wide receiver wore the visor to protect his contact lenses but ditched it after a freak incident, it was reported.

Williams missed a catch in last Sunday"s game at the Green Bay Packers after he lost the ball mid-flight due to the glare on his visor from the stadium"s flood lights.

Williams told the Dallas Morning News: "You can see the lights in my vision. That ball hit me dead in the face. Show me any other [pass] when I"ve gotten hit dead in the face."

But Sunday will see the Cowboys start at noon and so the match will be accompanied by a return of the protective visor.

After winning their last game against Washington Redskins, the Dallas Cowboys currently lie in first place in the National Football Conference East Team Division.
