  • Bengals' Trayveon Williams: Paces backfield in finale

    Williams rushed nine times for 38 yards and brought in one of two targets for four yards in the Bengals' 21-16 loss to the Browns on Sunday.

    Williams got a chance for extended action with Joe Mixon (reserve/COVID-19) unavailable and Samaje Perine going unused in the finale. The third-year pro is unlikely to have any role in the Bengals' upcoming postseason run unless there are multiple injuries in front of him.

  • Bengals' Trayveon Williams: Signed to active roster

    Williams was signed to the Bengals' active roster from the practice squad Saturday, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.

    Williams has been elevated from the practice squad on two occasions this season. However, he'll now join the roster on a more permanent basis, which could mean bad news for Chris Evans (ankle) from an injury perspective. When active, Williams has played primarily on special teams, but he does have six carries for 13 yards.

  • Trayveon Williams: Reverts to practice squad

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

    Williams was called up to add depth to Cincinnati's running back group with Chris Evans (hamstring) unable to go Sunday against the Jets. Williams ultimately only played eight snaps, all on special teams. If Evans misses Week 9 against the Browns, Williams will look for another chance to play Sunday.

  • Bengals' Trayveon Williams: Joining active roster

    Williams is being elevated to the Bengals' 53-man roster for Sunday's game against the Jets, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.

    Williams gets the call with Chris Evans set to miss the game with a hamstring issue. The 24-year-old Williams is unlikely to see much work behind Joe Mixon and Samaje Perine.

  • Trayveon Williams: Reverts to practice squad

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

    Samaje Perine (COVID-19) was unavailable for Sunday's contest, so Williams was elevated from the practice squad and carried six times for 13 yards behind Joe Mixon. Williams could be promoted again Week 7 if Perine remains sidelined, though Chris Evans would likely continue to work as Cincinnati's top backup at tailback.

  • Bengals' Trayveon Williams: Moves to active roster

    Williams has been elevated from the practice squad ahead of Sunday's game against the Lions.

    Williams will take over for Samaje Perine, who will not be activated off the reserve/COVID-19 list in time for Sunday's contest. The 23-year-old made a couple of brief appearances last season when Joe Mixon was sidelined, most notably tallying a 12-carry, three-catch effort as the de-facto starter in Week 14 against the Cowboys. The move essentially guarantees Mixon will be expected to handle his full workload, an important distinction considering he's currently listed as questionable with a nagging ankle injury.

  • Trayveon Williams: Doesn't make 53-man roster

    Williams was waived by the Bengals on Tuesday.

    The 2019 sixth-round pick recorded 157 yards on 26 carries and 30 yards on five receptions last season. Samaje Perine and Chris Evans will back up Joe Mixon to start the year.

  • Bengals' Trayveon Williams: Paces backfield in loss

    Williams (hamstring) rushed nine times for 44 yards, brought in both targets for three yards and returned one kickoff for 23 yards in the Bengals' 29-26 preseason loss to the Dolphins on Sunday.

    Williams needed to get out on the field Sunday to avoid missing the entirety of preseason and make a final case for a roster spot, and all told he did well with the opportunity. The third-year pro was solid in 10 games last season, averaging 6.0 yards per carry on his 26 rushes and adding five receptions. Given his productive performance Sunday, Williams may have assured himself a roster spot, but rookie sixth-round pick Chris Evans, arguably Williams' biggest competition for the No. 3 running back role, did flash with a 29-yard touchdown reception against Miami, while backfield mate Jacques Patrick garnered 61 total yards in his own right.

  • Bengals' Trayveon Williams: Won't suit up against Washington

    Williams (hamstring) will not face Washington during Friday's exhibition matchup, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.

    Williams will miss his second straight preseason game due to a hamstring injury, making Aug. 29's match against the Dolphins his next chance to suit up. The 2019 sixth-round pick has reportedly put together a strong offseason, but he's facing competition from Samaje Perine, Chris Evans, Jacques Patrick and Pooka Williams for a roster spot.

  • Bengals' Trayveon Williams: Injures hammy, out Saturday

    Williams injured his hamstring Thursday and won't be available for Saturday's preseason game against Tampa Bay, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.

    The 2019 sixth-round pick reportedly is having a nice summer after struggling with injuries the past two years, but even if he gets healthy in a hurry, Williams will need to compete for a roster spot and backup work. Samaje Perine, Chris Evans, Jacques Patrick and Pooka Williams are the other backfield options behind Joe Mixon, with Perine and Evans seemingly the chief competition for Trayveon Williams.

  • Bengals' Trayveon Williams: Infrequently employed

    Williams finished the 2020 season with 26 carries for 157 yards, including four carries for 74 yards in the season finale against the Ravens.

    Williams broke off a 55-yard run in the finale, but, despite the big run, he got very little work for the remainder of the game. Williams will be entering his third season in the NFL with little game action. With Joe Mixon signed long-term, there's not a lot of hope for Williams to earn a significant role with the Bengals.

  • Bengals' Trayveon Williams: Rushes twice in win

    Williams rushed twice for six yards in Sunday's 37-31 win over the Texans.

    Williams played just six of 76 snaps, serving as the clear No. 3 running back. Meanwhile, Giovani Bernard posted 131 yards from scrimmage, while Samaje Perine recorded 136 total yards and two scores. Williams likely will be the odd man out in the season finale against Baltimore, which boasts a much tougher run defense.

  • Bengals' Trayveon Williams: Gains role in backfield

    Williams carried the ball 12 times for 49 yards in Week 14 against the Cowboys. He added three receptions for 14 yards.

    Williams took over as the Bengals' lead back after Giovani Bernard fumbled on the opening drive. Williams was fairly effective on the team's subsequent possession, gaining 22 combined yards between receptions and carries. However, he fumbled the ball deep in Dallas territory and was subsequently benched for the rest of the first quarter. After re-entering the contest, Williams managed to lead the team with 12 carries and could see an increased role in Week 15 against the Steelers if Joe Mixon (foot) remains out.
