Williams (shoulder) is active for Sunday's game against the Rams.
Williams' limited practice participation Thursday and Friday was enough to keep him available on the short week after he played 34 defensive snaps in Monday's 33-30 loss to the Packers. The San Francisco secondary will get a difficult draw this week against a potent Rams passing attack that has averaged 9.9 yards per attempt this season, good for second in the NFL.
Williams (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Week 7's matchup against the Rams, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
Williams didn't practice Wednesday but squeezed in a limited practice Thursday. Including Williams, San Francisco has four defensive backs on the injury report. If the Pittsburgh product is unable to play Sunday, Jimmie Ward or Greg Mabin could see increased work.
Williams (illness) is active for Monday's game against the Packers.
Williams came down with an illness late in the week but looks to be feeling well enough to suit up in Green Bay. The 27-year-old cornerback should get solid playing time on special teams, and could see additional defensive work if he ends up playing nickelback against the Packers' three and four receiver sets.
Williams is listed as questionable for Monday's game at Green Bay with an illness, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.
Williams was added to the injury report Saturday and did not practice, so his status remains up in the air. The 27-year-old usually serves as a depth corner and special teams player for the 49ers, so the starting defense is unlikely to be significantly affected if he is unable to play.
Coach Mike Shanahan indicated he expects Williams (ankle) to play in Saturday's preseason contest, Matt Barrows of The Athletic Bay Area reports.
This is the first positive news for Williams since sustaining the injury back on Aug. 5. Williams was a bit of a surprise last season, earning a starting corner spot and maintaining the job for the entirety of the season. The addition of Richard Sherman has lessened Williams' value a tad, but if he can continue to show a knack for production, it forces San Francisco's hand to keep the 27-year-old on the field in some capacity.
