  • Chiefs' Chad Williams: Reaches injury settlement

    Kansas City released Williams (undisclosed) from injured reserve with an injury settlement Thursday, independent NFL journalist Aaron Wilson reports.

    Williams dealt with a groin injury early in camp but was healthy for the preseason opener against the 49ers. It is unclear if the groin issue is the reason for his latest trip to injured reserve. The 26-year-old will be free to sign with another team once he fulfills the terms of his settlement. He's played in just one game since 2018, but during that season he caught 17 passes for 171 yards and one touchdown across 10 contests for the Cardinals.

  • Cardinals' Chad Williams: Hauls in lone target

  • Cardinals' Chad Williams: Back at practice

    Williams (undisclosed) returned to practice Monday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

    Williams has been sidelined for the better part of a week with an injury that coach Kliff Kingsbury described as a "lower [body] soft-tissue" injury. Such issues are commonplace for players ramping up their activity in the early days of training camp, but it hit Williams at an inopportune time. With the addition of rookie wide receivers Andy Isabella (knee), Hakeem Butler and KeeSean Johnson in the offseason, Williams' battle for a roster spot already was in serious jeopardy. Then, on the day Williams returned to drills in some capacity, the Cardinals were rumored to sign veteran outside receiver Michael Crabtree, which ultimately fell through. Williams has his work cut out for him as August proceeds, but first he'll have to get past his current injury to be cleared for preseason action.
