  • Dexter Williams: Released from practice squad

    Williams was released from the Browns' practice squad Tuesday, Marla Ridenour of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

    Williams was added to the Browns' practice squad while they dealt with a COVID-19 outbreak to their running back room. Now that Nick Chubb and Demetric Felton are back, Williams finds himself as the odd man out. In a corresponding move, Cleveland re-signed John Kelly to its practice squad.

  • Dexter Williams: Signs with practice squad

    Williams was added to the Browns' practice squad Wednesday.

    With Nick Chubb and Demetric Felton on the reserve/COVID-19 list, the Browns added Williams to provide some depth to their backfield. The 2019 sixth-round pick has spent time on both the Packers' and Giants' practice squads this season. Both Chubb and Felton could play in Sunday's contest if they are able to clear COVID-19 protocols, but it's possible Williams could split the backup role with Brian Hill in the event neither are cleared.

  • Dexter Williams: Waived by Packers

    Williams was cut by the Packers on Tuesday, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.

    The third-year running back running back ran for a respectable 4.8 yards on 17 carries over the Packers' three preseason games, but he resided at or near the bottom of the depth chart the entire time, and the Packers ultimately decided to drop the 2019 sixth-round pick. Only three running backs are likely to occupy spots on Green Bay's roster heading into Week 1, so Williams could take a place on the practice squad.

  • Packers' Dexter Williams: Unable to move up depth chart

    Williams had eight carries for 22 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Jets.

    Williams got twice as many chances to run the ball as he did in the Packers' preseason opener, but he did not do much with the extra opportunities and remains in the fifth spot at his position on the depth chart with just one exhibition game remaining.

  • Packers' Dexter Williams: Seemingly last on depth chart

    Williams had four carries for 32 yards in the Packers' preseason opener against the Texans.

  • Packers' Dexter Williams: Inks reserve/future deal

    Williams has signed a reserve/future contract with the Packers.

    Williams was just cut from the Packers' practice squad prior to their loss in the NFC Championship Game. His departure was used to add offensive line depth.

  • Dexter Williams: Shown door in Green Bay

  • Dexter Williams: Reverts to practice squad

    Williams reverted to the Packers' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

    Williams garnered four snaps on special teams and three more on offense during a Sunday night win over the Titans, but the 23-year-old didn't get any work on the ground as he did during his last appearance Week 9. A knee injury kept Williams on the practice squad injured list between Nov. 11 and Dec. 15, but now he's available once again to provide depth to Green Bay's backfield when called upon.

  • Packers' Dexter Williams: Elevated for Week 16

    Williams was promoted to the Packers' active roster from the practice squad Saturday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

    The 23-year-old is a gameday elevation for Sunday's matchup with the Titans as Jamaal Williams (quadriceps) is expected to be sidelined. Dexter Williams is unlikely to see many offensive opportunities behind Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon.

  • Dexter Williams: Shakes off injury

    The Packers restored Williams (knee) from the practice squad injured list Tuesday.

    Williams has recovered from the sprained MCL he suffered during a win over San Francisco in Week 9. He'll likely remain on the practice squad unless one of Aaron Jones, Jamaal Williams or AJ Dillon picks up an injury.

  • Dexter Williams: Suffers sprained MCL

    The Packers placed Williams (knee) on the practice squad injured list Wednesday after he was diagnosed with a sprained MCL, Jim Owczarski of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

    Williams will miss three weeks of practice time after suffering the injury in last Thursday's win over the 49ers. The Packers signed Mike Weber to the practice squad to bolster their organizational depth at running back while Williams is on the mend.

  • Packers' Dexter Williams: May be facing long-term injury

    Packers head coach Matt LaFleur said that the knee injury Williams sustained in Thursday's 34-17 win over the 49ers is "potentially" a long-term concern, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

    After AJ Dillon and Jamaal Williams were placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list earlier this week, the Packers called up Dexter Williams from the practice squad ahead of Thursday's contest to provide depth at running back behind Aaron Jones and Tyler Ervin. Williams carried two times for eight yards in the second quarter before being announced as out for the remainder of the contest coming out of halftime. Though LaFleur didn't get into specifics about the injury, the Packers apparently fear Williams could miss significant time, pending the results of his follow-up tests. The Packers should have a good chance of getting at least one of Jamaal Williams and Dillon back for their next game Nov. 15 against the Jaguars, so Dexter likely wouldn't have been a part of the backfield rotation beyond this week even if he hadn't gotten hurt.
