Williams (concussion) will not play in Saturday's preseason game against the Giants.
Even if he were healthy, Williams would face long odds to make the final roster. Matt Forte, Bilal Powell and Khiry Robinson are all locks, and Antone Smith was recently signed to compete for the No. 4 job.
Williams has been diagnosed with a concussion, Rich Cimini of ESPN reports.
Williams entered the concussion protocol during Thursday's preseason opener against the Jaguars and, now that he has officially been diagnosed, faces a serious risk of being cut from the Jets' roster. He was fifth on New York's running back depth chart entering Thursday's game.
Williams left Thursday's preseason opener against the Jaguars to undergo concussion protocol, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.
Williams entered Thursday as the fifth running back on the teams depth chart, so he is competing for a roster spot. The undrafted rookie figured to be a long shot heading into camp given the team's running back depth.
