Williams (hamstring) was waived with an injury settlement by the Buccaneers on Monday, according to the NFL's official transaction log.
Williams was placed on injured reserve earlier this month, and has ultimately been waived by Tampa Bay. When healthy, Williams will be free to look for a depth role elsewhere in the league.
Williams (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Falcons, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.
Williams did not participate in practice Thursday and Friday after logging a limited session Wednesday, so his Week 6 absence comes as no surprise. The Buccaneers' secondary could be thin if starters Carlton Davis (groin) and Jordan Whitehead (hamstring) can't go as well.
Williams (hamstring) did not practice Thursday, Carmen Vitali of the team's official site reports.
It's obviously a step in the wrong direction for Williams, who'd been a limited participant Wednesday. The reserve cornerback is exclusively a depth option on defense, but his special teams role would have to be accounted for if he can't suit up Sunday against the Falcons.
Williams (hamstring) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Carmen Vitali of the team's official site reports.
Williams worked through his hamstring issue prior to the Week 4 loss to the Bears and was ultimately a full participant in the final practice before that contest. He subsequently logged a total of 25 snaps (12 defense, 13 special teams) in that game as a depth option in the secondary. Thursday's practice report should offer further clarity on Williams' status.
