Brandon Williams: Waived by Texans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams was waived by the Texans on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Williams bounced around the league last season, logging stints with the Giants and Texans, but never saw significant playing time. He'll now hit free agency once the new league year begins March 17.

Texans' Brandon Williams: Signs with Texans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams signed a reserves/future contract with the Texans according to a league source Monday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

After playing his 2020 campaign with the Giants, Williams has now signed a contract with Houston and will likely continue to contribute on special teams. Throughout the six games the cornerback participated in this season, he was battling a groin injury and recorded just one solo tackle.

Giants' Brandon Williams: Suiting up against Bengals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (ankle) is active Week 12 against the Bengals, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Williams will be active despite popping up on Friday's injury report, but his role this season -- both before and after his IR stint -- has been exclusively on special teams.

Giants' Brandon Williams: Activated from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants activated Williams (groin) from injured reserve Saturday, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.

Williams will return to action after a six-game hiatus. The 28-year-old played strictly on special teams through the first two games, but he could log some defensive snaps Sunday against the Football Team because Ryan Lewis (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Friday.

Giants' Brandon Williams: Preparing to return from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (groin) was designated to return from injured reserve Tuesday.

The Giants now have 21 days to evaluate Williams' health before activating him from IR, and he's eligible to play Week 8 against the Buccaneers. Prior to the injury, Williams played exclusively on special teams and didn't make a tackle.

Giants' Brandon Williams: Shifts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants placed Williams (groin) on injured reserve Wednesday, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

Williams missed Week 3 due to a groin injury, and he'll now need to spend at least the next three weeks on IR. He played purely on special teams during the first two games of the season.

Giants' Brandon Williams: Unavailable versus 49ers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (groin) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the 49ers, Dan Salomone of the Giants' official site reports.

Williams has only played on special teams this season, so his absence shouldn't affect the team's passing defense. He'll look to get back on the field in Week 4's matchup versus the Rams.

Giants' Brandon Williams: Back on active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants re-signed Williams on Sunday, Dan Duggan of The Athletic reports.

Williams was initially among New York's weekend roster cuts, but the team quickly brought him back to the regular-season roster. He stands to contribute on special teams and provide the Giants with cornerback depth. Williams only compiled 12 tackles in his last 32 games with Arizona, so he's not worth fantasy consideration in IDP formats.

Giants' Brandon Williams: Officially signs with Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (shoulder) signed a contract with the Giants on Saturday.

With Darnay Holmes (lower body) tending to an injury, the Giants brought in Williams and KeiVarae Russell as added depth. Williams could make the 53-man roster with a strong ending to training camp, but he'll likely need to contribute on special teams, too.

Brandon Williams: Expected to sign with Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (shoulder) is expected to sign with the Giants upon passing a physical and necessary testing, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.

Williams would provide New York with much-needed veteran depth at cornerback. He spent all of 2019 on injured reserve due to a shoulder injury, so his signing with the Giants will be contingent on health.

Cardinals' Brandon Williams: Sent to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (shoulder) reverted to Arizona's injured reserve Wednesday, per the NFL's official transaction log.

Williams was waived/injured by the Cardinals during final roster cuts. The 2016 third-round pick could reach an injury settlement with the team once he recover, but he'll remain sidelined for the duration of the season otherwise.

Brandon Williams: Drops to waivers with injury tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals waived/injured Williams (shoulder) on Saturday, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.

The Cardinals picked Williams in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft, but he hasn't lived up to his potential. Williams has mainly played in a special-teams role the last two years, so this training camp was likely a final audition. The injury was unfortunate for Williams' chances, and he'll likely revert to injured reserve after clearing waivers.

Cardinals' Brandon Williams: Achieves activation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals activated Williams (back) off the physically unable to perform list Sunday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Williams had been dealing with a back injury up to this point but was finally cleared by team doctors. The 26-year-old saw 85 defensive snaps last year for the Cardinals and was a factor on special teams, recording 192 kick-return yards. Expect the Texas A&M product to vie for a roster spot now that he's fully healthy.

Cardinals' Brandon Williams: Set to miss time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams is dealing with a back injury and was placed on the physically unable to perform list Saturday, Darren Urban of the team's official site reports.

There's no mention as to how severe the injury may be, so it's possible Williams could wind up missing some time. The 26-year-old played in 85 defensive snaps last year but was a minor factor on special teams, recording 192 kick-return yards. Williams figures to be in contention for a spot on the 53-man roster with Tramaine Brock, Chris Jones and Nate Brooks.

Cardinals' Brandon Williams: Nursing ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams is dealing with an apparent ankle injury, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Williams was held out of Sunday's preseason contest due to the ankle issue. The Cardinals are hoping Williams will be able to suit up for Thursday's preseason finale as they hope to further evaluate his worth. As it currently stands, Williams seems to be on the roster bubble.

Cardinals' Brandon Williams: Minimal defensive role in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams had two assisted tackles in 16 games for the Cardinals in 2017.

Williams logged three starts in his rookie season last year and appeared primed for an increased defensive role in 2017, but managed only one defensive snap for the season. The 2016 third-round pick will need to impress in training camp in order to get back on track for the 2018 season

Cardinals' Brandon Williams: In competition for starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams is competing with Justin Bethel (knee) for the starting cornerback spot opposite Patrick Peterson, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.

Williams isn't exactly off to a great start in the first week of training camp. First, the 2016 third-round selection was listed behind Bethel on the Cardinals' initial depth chart of training camp, according to Mike Jurecki of Arizona Sports 98.7 FM. To make matters worse, Williams didn't work with the first-team defense when Bethel sat out Friday's practice due to a knee concern, per Darren Urban of the team's official site. Instead, Zamort filled in for the veteran. While Williams may be in a couple in name, signs already appear to indicate that Bethel will be a starter, assuming he's healthy.

Cardinals' Brandon Williams: Active, likely starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (back) is listed as active Saturday in Seattle, Mark Dalton of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Williams is expected to fill in for starting cornerback Marcus Cooper (back), despite dealing with a stiff back during the week. As a result, Williams may be picked on early and often by Russell Wilson.

Cardinals' Brandon Williams: Questionable for Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (back) was a limited participant Friday's practice and is listed as questionable for Saturday's clash with the Seahawks.

With Marcus Cooper (back) already ruled out, the Cardinals could be dangerously thin in the secondary is Williams is ultimately unable to give it a go Saturday. Fortunately, Williams was able to practice in a limited capacity Friday, which is a sign of some progress from where Williams was earlier in the week. Further information on Williams' status will be made available prior to kickoff Saturday.

Cardinals' Brandon Williams: Doesn't practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams missed Thursday's practice due to a tight back, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

A mostly impressive training camp and preseason was all for naught, as Williams was usurped for a starting spot at cornerback in Arizona by latecomer Marcus Cooper. Cooper has held down the fort opposite All-Pro Patrick Peterson to this point in the season, but a back injury is expected to hold him out of Saturday's game at Seattle. Although Williams is the logical replacement, he'll have to prove that his back won't be in issue in what would be a spot start.
