Williams (toe) was a full participant in practice for the second consecutive day, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Williams' toe seems to be fully healed going into Sunday's game against the Eagles. The 33-year-old veteran lost starting privileges to Jamar Taylor but will still lineup as the nickel cornerback when facing three-receiver sets. He'll also be the primary return man on punts, meaning his fantasy value hasn't completely vanished.
Williams is listed as the No. 1 punt returner on the team's first regular season depth chart.
Williams may have lost his starting corner spot, but the 33-year-old managed to beat out rookie Corey Coleman for punt return duties, making it one of the more surprising upsets on the depth chart. Still, if Williams struggles off the bat, he could quickly be replaced by Coleman, who has more upside as an all-around player. The former Packer has returned 61 punts for 580 yards and one touchdown over his nine-year career but managed just one return in 2015.
Williams (toe) is expected to play in Thursday's preseason matchup with Chicago, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon-Journal reports.
Williams hasn't practiced fully since injuring his toe last week Wednesday, but he has worked out on the side and the team feels he's ready to return to action. Even if he does play it'll likely only be a drive or two before he's taken out and rested for the regular season.
Williams (toe) did not take part in on-field work Wednesday, Brian Dulik of The Chronicle-Telegram reports.
Williams suffered the toe injury during practice last week Wednesday's practice and has been working through it since. It's unclear what the specifics of the injury are and he's currently without a timetable for recovery. He's not expected to miss any regular season time, though it wouldn't be surprising if he sits the Browns' final preseason game, on Thursday against the Bears.
Williams left Wednesday's practice early with a toe injury, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports.
In his last nine seasons, the durable Williams has only missed two games. It's unusual to see a player of his toughness have to leave the playing field, but knowing his track record it would be a bit of a shock if he was to miss any regular season action. However, foot and toe injuries can often linger, so it is important to see how Williams feels throughout the remainder of the week.
