Forced into action after injuries to Jason Verrett (knee) and Brandon Flowers (concussion), Williams and the rest of the beleaguered secondary held up about as well as you can expect. The 25-year-old likely shouldn't be a target for IDP owners unless he can lock down a starting role.
Williams signed with the Chargers on Wednesday.
San Diego's fifth-round selection in 2013, Williams was eventually released just one day into the 2016 season before serving a short stint with the Rams. Now back with the Bolts, the diminutive cornerback will try to pick up where he left off at the end of last season when he accounted for turnovers on three straight possessions against the Broncos in Week 17.
Williams was released by the Rams on Saturday, ESPN's Alden Gonzalez reports.
Williams' release allowed for the Rams to promote fellow defensive back Isaiah Johnson from their practice squad. Williams hadn't yet appeared in a regular season game this season, but recorded 19 tackles (17 solo), one sack, five passes defensed, two interceptions, and two forced fumbles in 2015.
The Rams signed Williams to the team on Friday.
Williams spent training camp with the Chargers before being released during final roster cuts. The Rams were looking to acquire safety depth, which resulted in Williams' signing. The 25-year-old is entering his third season in the league.
Steve Williams (concussion) is active for Sunday's game at Kansas City.
Williams is expected to start in place of Brandon Flowers, who was placed on injured reserve earlier this week.
