The Cowboys waived Williams (undisclosed) from injured reserve, per the league's official transaction report.
Williams spent last season on the Cowboys' practice squad and could have the same role when he's healthy again. His last NFL experience came in 2015, when he suited up for two games, rushing twice for 12 yards.
Williams had just been released by the Cowboys on Thursday, but was brought back to Dallas just two days later after clearing waivers. He'll be a longshot to make the 53-man roster, but could be a candidate for the practice squad again this season.
Williams was waived by the Cowboys on Thursday, Todd Archer of ESPN reports.
Williams signed a reserve/future contract back in January, but with the Cowboys' fairly deep running back depth chart, the 25-year-old was always a long shot to make the 53-man roster. If Williams clears waivers, he could end up back with Dallas after spending a chunk of last season on the team's practice squad.
Williams signed a reserve/future contract with the Cowboys on Monday, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Williams spent three games on the Cowboys' 53-man roster during Ezekiel Elliott's six-game suspension, but was a healthy scratch for each contest. The 25-year-old hasn't seen game action since a brief two-game stint with the Colts to close the 2015 season.
Williams re-signed with the Cowboys' practice squad Thursday, Rob Phillips of the Cowboys' official site reports.
Williams was waived earlier in the week in order to make room for Ezekiel Elliott on the active roster. He'll likely finish off the season on the practice squad after spending the past three weeks on the 53-man roster.
