Williamson was elevated from the Falcons' practice squad Saturday, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

Williamson was likely elevated to Atlanta's active roster in response to fellow cornerback Avery Williams (hamstring) being ruled out for Week 7. According to Rothstein, Williamson could potentially have a role defensively with Richie Grant and Darren Hall defending the slot. Nonetheless, the 24-year-old will play a depth role for the Falcons' matchup with the Dolphins on Sunday.
