Brian Williams To Step Down From NBC Nightly News - For A Couple Of Days

Brian Williams, NBC Nightly News

Embattled NBC Nightly News Anchor released this statement Saturday regarding his controversy in which he numerous times reported that a helicopter he was a passenger in took enemy fire in 2003.

Here is Brian Williams Statement:
"In the midst of a career spent covering and consuming news, it has become painfully apparent to me that I am presently too much a part of the news, due to my actions. As Managing Editor of NBC Nightly News, I have decided to take myself off of my daily broadcast for the next several days, and Lester Holt has kindly agreed to sit in for me to allow us to adequately deal with this issue. Upon my return, I will continue my career-long effort to be worthy of the trust of those who place their trust in us."

So since Brian Williams announced on Saturday that he's taking the next several days off does that mean he will be back Monday?  He is usually off on the weekends, unless there is a major news story.
