    Cardinals add RB Kerwynn Williams to practice squad

    Running back Kerwynn Williams was added to the Cardinals' practice squad Wednesday, the team's official site reports. Promoted to the Cardinals' active roster in advance of Week 2 to serve as running back depth with Andre Ellington (knee) out of commission, Williams garnered only eight of 59 offensive snaps, which he translated into one carry for three yards. If Ellington sits out again Sunday versus the 49ers, Williams could again be bumped up to the 53-man roster.

    Cardinals promote RB Kerwynn Williams from practice squad

    The Cardinals have promoted running back Kerwynn Williams from their practice squad to the team's active roster in advance of Week 2. With Andre Ellington injured, Williams will bolster the Cards' backfield depth, though as it stands now he figures to slot in behind both Chris Johnson and David Johnson in the team's running back pecking order, with Stepfan Taylor also in the mix on that front.

    Cardinals running backs do little in playoff loss to Carolina

    Cardinals running backs Kerwynn Williams, Stepfan Taylor, Marion Grice and Robert Hughes could do little to nothing in Arizona's 27-16 loss to the Panthers Saturday. Arizona's running backs had 15 carries for 27 yards and one touchdown in defeat. Grice had just one carry for one yard and a touchdown. It was initally called a fumble on the field, with the ball popping out as Grice stretched for the end zone. However, it was overturned and called a touchdown. The Cardinals have been unable to get anything going on the ground the past few weeks, averaging 1.86 yards per carry in Arizona's last two outings.

    Cardinals RB situation a complete mess now

    Whether it was because he was limited in practice by a knee injury leading up to the game or because the Cardinals fell behind early and needed more of a pass blocker in the backfield, running back Kerwynn Williams, who had performed admirably the previous two weeks, totaling 175 yards on the ground, was hardly a factor Week 16 against Seattle, getting two carries for 4 yards. Instead, Stepfan Taylor was the lead ball carrier. Of course, he wasn't so effective in the role, picking up 19 yards on 11 carries, but that's bound to happen for any running back going against the Seahawks. He did at least have 25 yards on two catches. Marion Grice and Robert Hughes also each got a carry, but they haven't been as much of a factor with Andre Ellington out. Williams seems to be the best rusher of the group and the one you'd prefer to see get the carries in Fantasy, but if the Cardinals are that willing to abandon him when the score isn't in their favor, you can never feel confident playing him in Fantasy. Especially now that the Cardinals are down to their third quarterback, the score isn't going to be in their favor so often. Week 17 at San Francisco should be a more competitive game, but given that the 49ers are tough against the run as well, you should probably pass on Williams for the season's final week.

    Cardinals' Kerwynn Williams limited Thursday

    Cardinals running back Kerwynn Williams (knee) was limited in Thursday's practice, the team announced. Williams has shared touches with Stepfan Taylor with Andre Ellington out for the season but has amassed 175 rushing yards on 34 carries over the last two weeks. If his knee issue keeps him out Sunday, Taylor and Marion Grice would likely handle most of the touches at the position.

    Cardinals' Kerwynn Williams, Stepfan Taylor split carries vs. Rams

    Cardinals running backs Kerwynn Williams and Stepfan Taylor shared the workload Thursday, with Williams receiving 15 carries and Taylor getting 14 carries in the team's 12-6 win over the Rams in Week 15. Williams was the star of the rushing attack last week and led the team in rushing again Thursday, gaining 75 yards on his 15 carries while adding 11 more yards on two receptions. But he shared the ball virtually evenly in the running game with Taylor, who racked up 61 yards on 14 carries while not receiving a target in the passing game. Neither player scored a touchdown, but neither team was able to reach the end zone on a night where defenses reigned. The Cardinals could opt to continue the time share in Week 16 when the Seahawks come to town. If quarterback Drew Stanton (knee) ends up missing that game, the offense could lean heavily on Williams and Taylor again.
