Williamson reverted to Atlanta's practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log. Williamson drew the start Sunday against the Dolphins, finishing with three tackles. He was on the field for 24 defensive snaps and 13 snaps on special teams. Williamson could see more action in Week 8 if the Falcons' secondary fails to get healthy.
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.
Williamson signed with the Falcons' practice squad Wednesday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. The Giants selected Williamson with a seventh-round choice in April's draft, but the Minnesota product never made an appearance for Big Blue. The 23-year-old will now get a chance as a developmental piece for the Falcons, a team that has recently absorbed injuries to its starting safeties Keanu Neal (ankle) and Ricardo Allen (concussion).
