    Packers' Jamaal Williams: Could compete for carries

    Jamaal Williams will face competition for carries in 2020 after the Green Bay Packers selected running back AJ Dillon in the second round of this year's draft.Williams was an effective complement behind Aaron Jones the last couple seasons, but both players will be free agents in 2021, so the Packers decided to use a high pick on a running back to improve their stability at the position. Jones is still set to be the top option in Green Bay's backfield, and Williams figures to play some sort of regular role as well, particularly on passing downs. However, Williams has never been a dynamic runner as a professional, so he could cede some snaps and carries to Dillon, whose power style makes him more likely to usurp work from the sturdier Williams than the quicker Jones.

    Packers' Jamaal Williams: Change-of-pace role in 2019

    Jamaal Williams, who rushed four times for nine yards in the playoffs, finished the 2019 season with 107 carries for 460 yards (4.3 yards per carry) and a touchdown while catching 39 passes for 253 yards and five scores over 14 regular-season games.After splitting backfield duties with Aaron Jones last season, Williams slipped to the clear No. 2 role in 2019 as Jones developed into a stud running back. Williams filled an important change-of-pace role that helped keep Jones fresh, but the former still made an impressive offensive impact, as he tied Davante Adams for the team lead in receiving touchdowns. Both Jones and Williams are entering the final year of their contracts in 2020, and Williams will be worth a late-round pick as a handcuff.

    Packers' Jamaal Williams: Minimal role in playoff victory

    Jamaal Williams had one carry for three yards and one reception for nine yards in Sunday's divisional-round win over the Seahawks.Williams was back in action after missing the Green Bay Packers' regular season finale because of a shoulder injury, but he only played a complementary role alongside Aaron Jones in the Packers' first playoff game, totaling two touches on nine snaps. He could be a bit more active in next weekend's NFC Championship Game if the Packers decide they need him to assist with pass protection more often than he did Sunday.

    Packers' Jamaal Williams: Full practice Wednesday

    Jamaal Williams (shoulder) practiced in full Wednesday.Williams was held out of the Green Bay Packers' regular-season finale as a precautionary measure, which he more or less confirmed after the team's victory over the Lions. Speaking to Matt Schneidman of The Athletic, Williams said he would have suited up in the Week 17 game if it was a playoff contest. With an uninhibited practice under his belt, Williams is on pace to do just that in Sunday's divisional-round matchup with the Seahawks. Expect him to serve as a handcuff to Aaron Jones, a role that amounted to 10.4 touches for 50.9 yards from scrimmage per game over his 14 appearances in 2019.

The third-year back continues to work as the No. 2 behind Aaron Jones, and Williams averaged 10.4 touches per game during the regular season.

    Packers' Jamaal Williams: Doubtful for Week 17

    Jamaal Williams (shoulder) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game in Detroit, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.Coach Matt LaFleur essentially confirmed earlier Friday that Williams won't play, leaving Dexter Williams and Tyler Ervin as the reserve options in Green Bay's backfield. The situation could lead to extra touches for Aaron Jones, as it isn't clear if the team will trust Williams or Ervin to handle significant work in an important game. A victory would give the Green Bay Packers a shot at the NFC's No. 1 seed, while a loss could drop them as low as No. 3. A first-round bye in the postseason would help Williams avoid any additional missed time beyond Sunday.
