Williams finished with 45 tackles (40 solo) and two passes defended in 14 games this season.
Williams began the year as the 49ers' slot corner and hung onto that role through the end of the season. The case could be made that the 28-year-old outperformed fellow corner Akhello Witherspoon in coverage, but the latter's superior size (6-foot-2) and athleticism is better suited to line up on the outside opposite Richard Sherman. Williams will likely have to re-earn his slot role in camp -- especially if the team brings in more corners via the draft -- but the veteran should be the front runner for the job based on his solid performance over the last two years in San Francisco.
Williams (knee) won't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Rams, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
Williams aggravated the knee injury Week 16 against the Bears but was a limited participant at practice this week, though he showed enough Friday to avoid the questionable tag. The 27-year-old could have an increased chance for snaps Week 17 as Tarvarius Moore (shoulder) is questionable.
Williams (knee) will have his knee injury re-checked Wednesday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
Williams was initially listed as questionable for Sunday's tilt against the Bears due to a lingering knee issue, and he exited the 14-9 loss after aggravating the injury. The rotational cornerback's recovery will be monitored throughout the week, putting his chances of suiting up Week 17 versus the Rams firmly up in the air.
Williams is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Bears due to a knee injury, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Williams exited the Week 16 tilt midway through the third quarter. As long as the rotational cornerback remains sidelined, expect Greg Mabin to receive a slight uptick in snaps.
Williams (knee) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Williams has missed the last two games due to a lingering knee issue, but he appears to be nearing a full recovery. The rotational cornerback is on track to suit up against the Bears on Sunday.
