The Cleveland Browns may be on the verge of a divorce with one of their cornerbacks. Per multiple reports, nickel corner K'Waun Williams has been suspended by the team for two weeks after a dispute arose regarding his status for last week's preseason game against the Green Bay Packers.

The #Browns 2-week suspension of CB K'Waun Williams is for conduct detrimental to the team stemming from a dispute over his availability.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) August 17, 2016
Per Cleveland.com, Williams injured his ankle during the team's Orange and Brown scrimmage then determined that he was too injured to play in the game against the Packers and deactivated himself. The Browns then announced prior to the game that Williams was inactive for personal reasons.
He has not returned to training camp, and per Cleveland.com's report, he may have told the Browns he is retiring. A conflicting source stated that Williams is simply seeking a second opinion on his ankle.
Williams has been competing for the starting slot corner job with Jamar Taylor, who appears to have the lead in the competition. NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports that Williams was upset that Taylor has been working with the starters after Williams played the role for the last two seasons.
It remains to be seen if the two sides can work things out. If they can't, it's continue a string of cornerback draft picks and undrafted free agents not working out in Cleveland.
