Williams had five carries for 26 yards in Sunday's victory over the Bears. Williams got the ball nearly half the time he was on the field, but Aaron Jones received the bulk of the backfield work in Sunday's contest and Williams played only 12 snaps. Williams was still far more involved than fellow reserve AJ Dillon -- who tallied just five snaps and one carry -- and he remains the clear backup behind Jones heading into the postseason.
Williams (quadriceps) was a full practice participant Thursday. Williams was deemed to be limited at Wednesday's walk-through session, so his elevation to uncapped one day later is telling for the health of his quadriceps. With his status cleared ahead of Sunday's regular-season finale in Chicago, it'll be interesting to see if he retains his role as the Packers' No. 2 running back after AJ Dillon's impressive performance in Williams' absence Week 16. Dillon racked up 22 touches for 129 yards and two TDs in the blowout win over the Titans, while Aaron Jones himself recorded 12 touches for 108 total yards.
Williams (quadriceps) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice. The appearance at practice marks Williams' first since injuring his quad Week 15 against the Panthers. He proceeded to miss the Packers' dismantling of the Titans last weekend, giving AJ Dillon a chance to shine alongside Aaron Jones. Dillon, a rookie second-round pick, turned 22 touches into 129 yards from scrimmage and two scores on the ground, while Jones managed 12 touches for 108 total yards. If Williams does enough this week to be active Sunday at Chicago, it'll be interesting to see who among Williams and Dillon is working in concert with Jones.
Williams (quadriceps) returned to practice Wednesday, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports Williams didn't practice at all last week before sitting out the Packers' victory over the Titans. His absence cleared the way for AJ Dillon to have his coming-out party, as the rookie second-round pick tore through the Titans defense for 22 touches for 129 yards from scrimmage and two rushing scores. Top back Aaron Jones also tallied 12 touches for 108 total yards, so it'll be interesting to see how Williams is reincorporated into the Packers offense if he gains clearance for Sunday's game at Chicago.
Williams (quadriceps) is listed as inactive Sunday against the Titans. After failing to practice in any capacity during Week 16 prep, Williams' imminent DNP was forecast with a doubtful designation for this contest. While Williams tends to a quadriceps injury that knocked him out of Week 15 action versus the Panthers, the Packers will ride the coattails of Aaron Jones out of their backfield. There's also the potential for rookie second-round pick AJ Dillon to get his first significant run of the campaign.
