Williams rushed for 55 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries and added 42 yards on four catches during Sunday's 24-17 loss to Chicago. Teammate Aaron Jones sprained his knee during the contest, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Williams helped tie the game up late in the third quarter, taking the outside hand-off and cutting through the Chicago defense on his way to a 10-yard touchdown, his first since Week 8 and just his second of the season. Williams had taken a backseat to fellow sophomore Aaron Jones this season, with Williams recording single-digit touches in eight of his previous nine games entering Sunday. With Jones reportedly battling a sprained knee and little else for Green Bay to play for this season, Williams might carry the load down the stretch. If he does, he'll start off against a middle-of-the-road Jets run defense, surrendering 4.5 yards per carry this season.
Williams had four carries for 17 yards in Sunday's victory over the Falcons.
Williams was surprisingly the Packers' primary running back in the first quarter of Sunday's game, but that had more to do with interim head coach Joe Philbin scripting a pass-happy attack early than Williams overtaking fellow running back Aaron Jones. By the end of the game, Jones still played 42 snaps to Williams' 24 and tallied 20 touches to Williams' four. Williams was more involved the last two weeks after playing less than 25 percent of the snaps between Weeks 10-12, but he remains the clear No. 2 option in the Packers' backfield.
Williams had seven carries for 13 yards and four receptions for 14 yards in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals.
The 11 touches were just three fewer than Williams tallied in the previous four games, but he was not able to do much with the added opportunities. Fellow running back Aaron Jones had a season-low 36 yards on the ground Sunday, but he still had 15 touches and found paydirt, so he still had a more productive day. Changes could occur in the Packers' offense with Mike McCarthy no longer calling the shots, but Jones remains the top option in the Green Bay backfield. Both running backs will have a nice matchup in Week 14, though, as the Packers square off against a Falcons squad that has allowed opposing running backs to rush for an average of 146.5 yards over the last four games.
Williams had one carry for five yards in Sunday's loss to the Vikings.
It was another quiet week for Williams, who was on the field for just 13 snaps. Fellow running back Aaron Jones played 40 snaps and had another productive outing, so don't expect much to change with the Packers' running-back situation in Week 13.
Williams had one carry for five yards in Thursday's loss to the Seahawks.
Fellow running back Aaron Jones had already taken over as the primary runner prior to Week 11, and he also handled the bulk of the work on passing downs Thursday, rending Williams almost a non-factor. The gap between the two widened significantly the last couple weeks, and with Jones excelling on both the ground and through the air -- while proving at least competent at pass blocking -- don't expect that to change anytime soon.
