Williams and fellow 2017 draft pick Tyus Bowser are primed to handle larger roles after the Ravens lost Terrell Suggs to the Cardinals and Za'Darius Smith to the Packers, Ryan Mink of the team's official website reports.
Williams was selected at No. 78 overall in 2017 after piling up 18.5 sacks in his final two seasons at Alabama. A strong depth chart in Baltimore has limited him to 244 defensive snaps through two NFL campaigns, but he did look good during the 2018 preseason and then added a pair of sacks in September. Williams battled foot, ankle and hamstring injuries through the rest of the season, but he regained his healthy by the end of the year and should be in the mix for regular snaps in 2019.
Williams (ankle) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice.
Williams' ability to return to practice without any limitations bodes well for his chances of playing in Sunday's game. The second-year vet will likely resume his role as a depth outside linebacker following his return to the field without a hindrance.
Williams (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's matchup with the Chiefs, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.
Williams is missing his fourth straight game due to the ankle injury he suffered in Week 8. He was a full participant in practice this week and appears on the cusp of a return. He'll figure to operate as a depth linebacker and special teams player whenever he's able to play.
Williams (ankle) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.
Williams has not seen the field since Week 8, but he appears to have a chance of suiting up against the Chiefs on Sunday. If the second-year pro is able to go, he may see rotational defensive snaps.
Williams (illness) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Falcons.
Williams was a full participant in practice Thursday and Friday but hasn't been able to shake his undisclosed illness. This is the fourth-straight game he's missed but only the second due to illness. Look for Tyus Bowser or Za'Darius Smith to again see some extra snaps with Williams out.
