Williams reverted to the Lions' practice squad Tuesday. Williams was brought up to the active roster for Week 1's divisional showdown against the Bears, but the running back was ultimately a healthy scratch. The Lions have plenty of backfield depth, so Williams will struggle to climb the team's depth chart.
Williams is inactive for Sunday's game against the Raiders. Williams was promoted to the Lions' active roster Saturday, but he will not immediately suit up for the team. He slots in sixth in the depth chart, so it's unlikely he will play a key role in the Lions' offense anytime soon.
Williams was promoted to the active roster Saturday. Williams was cut by the Lions late in training camp but re-joined the team's practice squad. He's now on the 55-man active roster but isn't likely to have much of a role given the depth of the Lions' backfield.
Williams was let go by the Lions on Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. The 26-year-old castoff never really had a chance to make an impression with the Lions and thus will see another stint on free agency. Williams has seen time with four different rosters since being drafted in the fifth round by the Bills in 2016.
Williams inked a contract with the Lions on Monday. The 26-year-old failed to earn another contract with the Colts heading into 2020 after he rushed for 235 yards and a touchdown on 49 carries this past season. The Lions have drafted running backs in the second round in two of the past three drafts in Kerryon Johnson (2018) and D'Andre Swift (2020), so it's unlikely that Williams will see any meaningful time this season with the team barring injuries.
