Williams underwent knee surgery in December, and his recovery has progressed as expected. The 30-year-old veteran has been able to fully participate in training camp without issue, so it's likely that Washington is simply taking a cautious approach with Williams' reintegration onto the field.
Williams (knee) was a full participant in practice Saturday, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
Williams was able to practice in full-team work for the first time, so his activity level should continue to ramp up as training camp progresses. If he's subjected to any further limitations, however, Ty Nsekhe figures to see additional reps.
Williams (knee) participated in 11-on-11 drills in Friday's practice, Rich Handler of NBC Sports Washington reports.
Williams underwent knee surgery back in December, and the expectation was always that the tackle was going to be ready for training camp. While it doesn't appear Williams is being considered a full participant, the fact that he is taking part in the 11-on-11 work is a great sign for his recovery.
Williams (knee) is "very close" to feeling like himself and is expected to be ready for training camp, Kimberley A. Martin of The Washington Post reports. "I got the go-ahead to kind of do whatever I can without obviously being too aggressive on it," Williams said. "I'm extremely blessed. I'll be ready before camp."
Williams has been rehabbing for the past five months after undergoing knee surgery and it appears as if the veteran is getting very close to returning to full strength. Once training camp rolls around, Williams will finally get an opportunity to take the field with new quarterback Alex Smith.
Williams (knee) is expected back for training camp, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.
Williams missed six games due to his knee injury in 2017, playing through the injury in several other weeks. The team has said they won't draft with concern for Williams health and are planning on him being back to 100 percent for the 2018 season.
