Browns general manager Andrew Berry said Wednesday that he expects Williams (shoulder) to recover completely from the nerve injury that sidelined him throughout the 2020 season, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports. According to Andrew Gribble of the Browns' official site, Williams is expected to be available for the team's offseason program, though it's unclear if the cornerback will be a full participant during OTAs in the spring. Before the shoulder injury surfaced, the 2019 second-round pick was expected to serve as a starting cornerback opposite Denzel Ward during his second season.
Williams (shoulder) should return in time for the 2021 season, Andrew Gribble of the Browns' official site reports. Williams injured his shoulder during training camp and was eventually placed on injured reserve in October. Cleveland head coach Kevin Stefanski said both Williams and safety Grant Delpit (Achilles) should be ready for the next season. "They are just going to continue to rehab and work through those injuries. That is the exciting part for us to get some of those guys back next season," said the coach. Williams should resume his spot as a starting cornerback opposite Denzel Ward.
Williams revealed that he's suffering from axillary nerve damage in his shoulder, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. The LSU product remains on injured reserve, and a clear timeline for his recovery has yet to be spelled out. Williams has been coping with a shoulder issue since sustaining a practice injury Aug. 24, and he hasn't been able to make a game appearance all season.
Williams (shoulder) remains without a return timetable as he deals with nerve damage in his shoulder, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports. Williams has spent the entire season on IR and seems unlikely to return this year. The 2019 second-round pick had 47 tackles as a rookie.
The Browns placed Williams (shoulder) on injured reserve Monday, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports. Williams has yet to suit up this season due to a shoulder injury, which coach Kevin Stefanski deemed a nerve issue. The second-year cornerback won't need surgery, but there's a chance he misses the rest of the season. Williams won't be eligible to return until a Week 10 matchup against the Texans. Terrance Mitchell has been starting at cornerback in his place and is expected to continue that role moving forward.
