Williams (undisclosed) was released from San Francisco's injured reserve with an injury settlement Friday, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Williams' injury is unclear in nature, but it's seemingly serious enough to have landed him on injured reserve Saturday. The 28-year-old was competing for a depth role in the Niners' receiving corps, but now he'll have to focus on getting healthy and finding a new opportunity elsewhere.
Williams (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, per the league's official transactions report.
Williams was competing for a deep depth role in San Francisco's wide receiver room in the offseason, but he's now done for the season due to an undisclosed injury. He'll focus on returning to full health.
Williams agreed to a deal with the 49ers on Tuesday.
Williams, an undrafted free agent in 2013, has played for a plethora of teams since. From the Redskins, to the Falcons, Titans and Rams, he has recorded just 280 yards on 30 receptions in 26 games. He had been with the Broncos for training camp but was recently let go. The journeyman will now look to make an impression in a small period of time at San Francisco's camp.
The Broncos released Williams on Monday, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports.
Williams originally signed with Denver on July 26 after appearing in two games last season for the Rams. The 28-year-old hasn't been able to play in more than two games in a season since the 2015 campaign, where he caught 17 passes for 159 yards and two touchdowns for the Falcons.
Williams signed a contract with the Broncos on Friday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
Williams was let go by the Rams in November and was unable to find a home in free agency until now. The 28-year-old hasn't played in more than two games in a season since 2015.
Williams was waived by the Rams on Friday, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Williams joined the Rams in mid-October but hasn't been active for a game since Week 8 against Green Bay. Aqib Talib (ankle) was activated off injured reserve to take his place on the 53-man roster.
Williams caught both of his targets for 17 yards during Sunday's 39-10 win over San Francisco. He played 10 of 61 offensive snaps.
Just signed to the team Tuesday, Williams leapfrogged a few Rams on the depth chart and took advantage of his limited playing time Sunday. He caught his passes in the second and third quarters, so his involvement in the vertical attack wasn't in garbage time, either. Still, the 27-year-old receiver is a long shot to make a notable impact and is off the fantasy radar in the majority of settings.
Williams signed with the Rams on Tuesday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
With Cooper Kupp (knee) not expected to play in Sunday's game against the 49ers, the Rams will bring in Williams to shore up the depth at wide receiver. Williams was most recently released by the Titans a week ago after dropping a crucial pass in the team's loss to Buffalo. He likely won't play too large of a role in the Rams' passing game this weekend.
The Titans released Williams on Tuesday, Jim Wyatt of the team's official site reports.
Williams was jettisoned from the 53-man roster just two days after dropping his lone target in Sunday's 12-9 loss to the Bills, a mistake that likely cost the Titans a touchdown. After being cut by the Titans following preseason, Williams re-signed with the team in September, appearing in two contests and seeing most of his action on special teams.
Williams signed with the Titans on Monday, Jim Wyatt of the team's official site reports.
Williams had been impressive throughout Tennessee's training camp earlier this year, but he fell victim to the numbers game. It's unlikely the Titans will ask much of Williams from an offensive standpoint, but the veteran wideout has a potential role waiting for him on special teams.
Williams (hamstring) was waived by the Titans on Saturday, Travis Haney of The Athletic Nashville reports.
Williams played well in the preseason and was a candidate for a depth receiver and special teams role prior to his injury last week. He'll become a free agent if he clears waivers.
Williams sustained a hamstring injury during Saturday's preseason game against the Steelers, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.
Williams was listed as questionable to return after he pulled up grabbing his left hamstring while covering a punt, and there was no indication he returned to the field. The severity of the injury remains unclear as the 28-year-old attempts to secure a spot on the 53-man roster.
Williams has been working as the Titans' No. 3 receiver in recent practices, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports.
The 27-year-old wideout has caught 28 passes over 22 career NFL games, with most of his production coming in 2015 for the Falcons. He'll likely get pushed off the first-team offense once Rishard Matthews (undisclosed) starts practicing, but this is at least a sign that Williams has a decent shot to make the 53-man roster. He's competing with Darius Jennings, Deontay Burnett and a slew of other players for one or two jobs at the bottom of the depth chart.
Williams came to terms on a contract with the Titans on Wednesday, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports.
Williams is entering his sixth professional season and spent the past three campaigns in the Atlanta organization, hauling in 25 receptions for 248 yards and two scores over that stretch. Most of that production came in 2015, as a concussion and his low standing on the depth chart have limited him to three regular-season appearances over the past two years. He'll vie for a depth role in Tennessee but faces a similarly blocked path to playing time.
Williams didn't receive a qualifying offer or minimum tender from the Falcons and will become an unrestricted free agent, per the league's official transaction log.
Williams played in only one game for the Falcons this past season, catching three of four targets for 30 yards against the Bills in Week 4. However, he didn't see the field again until the playoffs, when he was almost exclusively used on special teams. It isn't clear what kind of attention he'll receive on the open market, but it's unlikely he'll find himself in a fantasy-relevant role ahead of the 2018 season.
Williams caught three balls for 30 yards in the only game he played for the Falcons this season.
Williams will almost certainly try to latch on to a new team when he becomes a free agent this offseason, but he'll still have an uphill battle to make a final 53-man roster.
Williams (coach's decision) is inactive for the Falcons' Week 1 game versus the Bears.
Williams is buried on the Falcons' depth chart at wide receiver, while Julio Jones, Mohamed Sanu and Taylor Gabriel figure to maintain their positioning at the top of the group. Williams appeared in just two games for Atlanta throughout the 2016 season, hauling in five passes for 59 yards on seven targets.
Williams (coach's decision) is inactive for Saturday's matchup with Carolina.
Williams missed last week's game due to a concussion but was able to practice the past few days and was cleared to play this week. However, with Julio Jones (toe) returning from injury, Williams was the odd man out at the bottom of the receiver depth chart.
Williams (concussion) was a full practice participant Thursday.
After sustaining a concussion on Dec. 11 in Los Angeles, Williams required more than a week to complete his first uncapped practice, but the protocol for head injuries may still be his domain. While the Falcons may touch on his status in the near future, he could be the odd man out in a receiving corps that expects to have Julio Jones (toe) back in the fold Saturday at Carolina.
Williams was limited at practice Wednesday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.
Williams was limited for the second straight day as he remains in the league's concussion protocol. He'll need to ramp up his activity in the next two days to have a chance to play in Week 16, though it's still possible that he could lose his roster spot if Julio Jones (toe) returns to action.
