    Ryan Williams' roster spot not guaranteed

    Cardinals coach Bruce Arians praised running back Ryan Williams' attitude last season when he was a healthy scratch for every game. But the coach conceded Williams' roster spot is not secure, saying "he could be gone." "Ryan has a chance this year," Arians told the team's website. "He went into training camp (last year) and missed the entire preseason. It's very hard to become a player during the season when you miss the entire preseason. He did impressive things on the scout team. The big thing, he came to work every day. The consistency of showing up to work every day, that will be the big thing for him in training camp this year."
