Newly Streamlined Karlos Williams Hits Training Camp Field for 1st Time

Overview

PITTSFORD, N.Y. — Karlos Williams hit the practice field on Monday for the first time at Buffalo Bills training camp after passing a physical.

Williams’ rookie season was punctuated by eye-popping runs, but his first offseason saw him come in overweight and saddled with a four-game suspension from the National Football League for violating the substance abuse policy.

“It felt good to touch a football again, especially being around teammates and being in live action. Taking live reps, getting back down on special teams, going through drills with coach (Danny) Crossman,” said the running back. “Just a really great feeling just being back on the football field.”

“I think we’re all excited about the talent he has that you mentioned. It’s clear this is a really talented young man and yeah, we hope that he’s here for a long time and does the right things and handles himself well off the field, so that’s something that we’re counting on from him,” said Head Coach Rex Ryan.

There was no official word Monday on if Williams will play in Saturday’s preseason game versus the Giants.
