Williams-Lambert caught both his targets for 17 yards in Friday's preseason game against the Giants.
Williams-Lambert made a catch in each of the final two quarters, seeing 19 offensive snaps and seven on special teams. He seems to be fully over the hamstring issue that bothered him earlier and is back in the mix for a roster spot at wide receiver.
Williams-Lambert left Saturday's practice early with a hamstring injury, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.
A hamstring injury for Williams-Lambert could prove quite costly as he battles for a roster spot at wide receiver. He's positioned well below the primary quartet of Allen Robinson, Anthony Miller (shoulder), Taylor Gabriel and Cordarrelle Patterson.
Williams-Lambert (undisclosed) signed a reserve/future contract with the Bears on Friday.
Williams-Lambert went undrafted out of Ball State in 2016 and spent time with the Saints before being waived/injured in August of 2017. The 24-year-old is still looking to make his NFL debut but remains a longshot to make the 53-man roster.
Williams-Lambert (undisclosed) cleared waivers Thursday and was sent to injured reserve by the Saints, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
It's tough to assess where Williams-Lambert will go from here, due both to the uncertainty surrounding the injury and his lack of NFL experience. If the ailment isn't serious, don't expect him to be picked up by another team until after the 2017 season.
Williams signed a reserve/future contract with the Saints earlier this month, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune.
Williams, who is listed at 6-foot-2, 216 pounds, played at Ball State and joined the Saints as an undrafted free agent last season. He spent time in training camp with the Saints before signing with the practice squad in September 2016. Williams will compete for a roster spot next season but is not expected to be a fantasy contributor.
