Chad Williams: Released off IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (undisclosed) was released by the Colts with an injury settlement on Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Williams went unclaimed off waivers after he was waived/injured by the Colts, and as evidenced by this news, he'll be free to sign with any team. The 2017 third-round pick appeared in one game with the Colts last season, failing to haul in his only target.

Colts' Chad Williams: Reverts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams went unclaimed on waivers Tuesday and reverted to the Colts' injured reserve, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Williams is set to spent the entire 2020 campaign on IR unless he reaches an injury settlement. He appeared in one game with the Colts last season, during which he failed to secure his only target.

Chad Williams: Waived/injured by Colts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (undisclosed) was waived/injured by Indianapolis on Monday, George Bremer of The Anderson Herald Bulletin reports.

It's unclear what sort of injury Williams is dealing with, but it's serious enough to warrant his release. If Williams clears waivers, he'll revert back to the team's injured reserve list.

Colts' Chad Williams: Plays one game in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams didn't catch his only target in 2019.

Williams was brought up from the practice squad due to a plethora of wideout injuries, but he only played six offensive snaps. The 25-year-old is under contract for the 2020 season with no guaranteed money, and he'll face steep competition to make the final roster.

Colts' Chad Williams: Promoted from practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Colts have promoted Williams to their active roster, Kevin Bowen of 107.5 The Fan Indianapolis reports.

Williams, who had been on the practice squad, will provide the team with added wideout depth after Chester Rogers landed on IR due to a knee injury, and with both T.Y. Hilton (calf) and Parris Campbell (hand) banged up heading into Week 14.

Chad Williams: Joins Colts' practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams signed with the Colts' practice squad Monday.

Williams spent his offseason with the Cardinals before being released in final roster cuts. He appeared in 16 games during his time with Arizona, recording 20 catches for 202 yards and a touchdown.

Chad Williams: Done in desert
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals cut Williams on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The 2017 third-round pick hauled in 17 passes for 171 yards and one touchdown in 10 games last season, but failed to make the roster with a crowded receiver room. Williams could bring NFL experience and depth to another team this season.

Cardinals' Chad Williams: Hauls in lone target
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (undisclosed) caught his lone target for six yards in Thursday's preseason game against the Raiders.

Williams was sidelined with a lower body, soft-tissue injury earlier in camp, but the fact he was on the field Thursday indicates he's recovered from the issue. The 24-year-old had 17 catches for 171 yards and one touchdown in 10 games last season, but he may have a tough time cracking the 53-man roster for 2019 following the additions of Andy Isabella, Hakeem Butler and KeeSean Johnson in April's draft.

Cardinals' Chad Williams: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (undisclosed) returned to practice Monday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Williams has been sidelined for the better part of a week with an injury that coach Kliff Kingsbury described as a "lower [body] soft-tissue" injury. Such issues are commonplace for players ramping up their activity in the early days of training camp, but it hit Williams at an inopportune time. With the addition of rookie wide receivers Andy Isabella (knee), Hakeem Butler and KeeSean Johnson in the offseason, Williams' battle for a roster spot already was in serious jeopardy. Then, on the day Williams returned to drills in some capacity, the Cardinals were rumored to sign veteran outside receiver Michael Crabtree, which ultimately fell through. Williams has his work cut out for him as August proceeds, but first he'll have to get past his current injury to be cleared for preseason action.

Cardinals' Chad Williams: Tending to injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Kliff Kingsbury said Wednesday that Williams hasn't practiced in training camp due to a "lower [body] soft-tissue" injury, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.

Williams is already on the outside looking in for a roster spot in a crowded receiving corps, so he isn't helping the new coaching staff get a sense of his ability. Two seasons of intermittent tape also don't help, as the 2017 third-round pick has managed just 20 catches (on 53 targets) for 202 yards and one touchdown in 16 appearances. While the Cardinals may keep seven wideouts on the final 53-man roster, Williams likely is fighting for the very last one with Kevin White, Damiere Byrd and Pharoh Cooper.

Cardinals' Chad Williams: Battling for job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams is hoping to impress a new coaching staff, but he'll have competition from free-agent signee Kevin White and rookies Andy Isabella, Hakeem Butler and KeeSean Johnson, Kevin Zimmerman of 98.7 FM Arizona Sports reports.

A 2017 third-round pick, Williams has caught just 20 of 52 targets for 202 yards and a touchdown in 16 career games. Coach Kliff Kingsbury is known for an offense that places a heavy burden on the wide receivers, but even so, it isn't clear where Williams fits in. The 24-year-old needs to make a strong impression during training camp and preseason just to keep his spot on the roster.

Cardinals' Chad Williams: Notches 17 catches in 10 games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams compiled 17 catches (on 46 targets) for 171 yards and one touchdown in 10 games during the 2018 campaign. He also added one carry for nine yards.

Since he was plucked by the Cardinals in the third round of the 2017 draft, Williams hasn't exactly had an ideal quarterback situation, but a horrid career catch rate of 37.7 percent (20 receptions on 53 targets) is more indicative of his own play than the four signal-callers (Carson Palmer, Blaine Gabbert, Sam Bradford and Josh Rosen) that have directed passes his way. Overall, Williams has been held to one or fewer catches in 16 appearances with the Cardinals, leaving him on the periphery of Arizona's receiving corps. Assuming Larry Fitzgerald returns in 2019, Williams also will have to contend with rookie sensation Christian Kirk (foot), Trent Sherfield and any other wideouts added in the offseason.

Cardinals' Chad Williams: Minimal production in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams brought in one of four targets for seven yards in the Cardinals' 31-9 loss to the Rams on Sunday.

Williams' return after a six-game absence due to a hamstring injury was a dud, as he managed just a 25 percent catch rate while seeing both Trent Sherfield and Larry Fitzgerald outpace him in receptions by five apiece. Williams' second season has been just as disappointing as his rookie campaign, as he now has just 11 receptions on 31 targets for 113 yards and is sporting the same 10.3 YPC figure he generated a year ago. The Grambling product will look to finish out on a strong note versus the Seahawks in Week 17.

Cardinals' Chad Williams: Ready to end six-game absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (hamstring) put in a full practice Friday and doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Rams, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.

Williams is set to put a six-game absence to an end this weekend, though the extended break may force him to settle for a more limited role in the Cardinals' passing attack than he held prior to the injury. Even though he started each of the Cardinals' first eight games, Williams was one of the NFL's least efficient receivers, catching just 35.5 percent of the balls directed his way for 3.6 yards per target.

Cardinals' Chad Williams: Limited practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (hamstring) practiced in a limited capacity Wednesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Williams has pushed the door ajar for a return with involvement in individual drills at both of the Cardinals' last two practices. He even got a semi-endorsement from coach Steve Wilks, who told Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com on Monday that he's "very hopeful" Williams will end a six-game absence this weekend against the Rams. In a receiving corps with plenty of targets to go around behind top option Larry Fitzgerald, only undrafted rookie Trent Sherfield has taken advantage of the situation this season.

Cardinals' Chad Williams: Trending up for Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Steve Wilks said he is "hopeful" Williams will be able to play Sunday against the Rams, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.

Williams has missed the last six games but finally returned to practice Friday for the first time since Nov. 30. The 24-year-old's status should receive further clarification once the Cardinals resume practice Wednesday, but he likely will need to practice fully by Friday if he is to avoid an injury designation, given his extended absence.

Cardinals' Chad Williams: Unavailable again Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (hamstring) is listed as inactive Sunday at Atlanta, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Despite practicing for the first time since Nov. 30 on Friday, Williams' hamstring isn't healthy enough to clear him for a return to action. While he embarks on his sixth consecutive absence, the Cardinals' receiving corps will be Larry Fitzgerald and not much else Week 15.

Cardinals' Chad Williams: Questionable for Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (hamstring) practiced in a limited capacity Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Atlanta, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Williams made his presence felt in practice for the first time since Nov. 30, so there appears to be a chance he'll stop his DNP streak at five games this weekend. If he does, he'll contend with Trent Sherfield for offensive snaps behind Larry Fitzgerald, but Williams' 3.8 yards per target as a pro doesn't offer much promise.

Cardinals' Chad Williams: Spectator for practice again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (hamstring) didn't participate in Thursday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

Williams hasn't dressed for a game since Week 8, and his lack of practice participation Wednesday and Thursday doesn't offer much hope that his streak of absences will come to an end Sunday in Atlanta. Trent Sherfield will continue to benefit from added snaps and targets alongside top wideout Larry Fitzgerald while Williams is sidelined.

Cardinals' Chad Williams: Remains sidelined at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams (hamstring) was held out of practice Wednesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

After sitting out four games due to an ankle injury, Williams appeared set to take advantage of a receiving corps missing rookie Christian Kirk, who suffered a broken foot Week 13. Williams was listed as a full participant in every practice last week, but the Cardinals added him to the injury report Saturday with a hamstring issue. He carried a questionable designation into Sunday's loss to the Lions, ultimately garnering an inactive status for the fifth straight contest. With no reps to start this week, his prospects don't look great for suiting up this weekend in Atlanta. Look for undrafted rookie Trent Sherfield to continue acting as the No. 2 wide receiver, even if Williams is able to return before season's end.
