Giants' Antonio Williams: Busy in second preseason game
Williams rushed five times for 26 yards and caught all seven of his targets for 46 yards in a 25-22 preseason win over the Bengals on Sunday.
UDFA Jashaun Corbin led the Giants with nine carries in the contest, but Williams tallied only one fewer rushing yard on four fewer carries. The latter was also very active as a pass catcher, finishing second on the team with seven receptions and third with 46 receiving yards. Williams impressed in the team's first exhibition contest against New England last Thursday, rushing nine times for 61 yards and a touchdown, though Corbin was the more prolific receiver in that game. The two (along with Gary Brightwell, who didn't play Sunday due to an undisclosed injury) are battling for the role of No. 3 RB behind Saquon Barkley and Matt Breida (undisclosed), and Williams appears to have the inside track for the spot thus far, per Dan Duggan of The Athletic....

Williams appeared to hurt his left knee while running routes during a 1-on-1 drill and was subsequently seen with the knee wrapped. He didn't return to practice for the remainder of the day.

Antonio Williams: Rejoins Bills' practice squad
Williams was signed to the Bills' practice squad Tuesday.
The running back was cut from the team's practice squad Dec. 30 but will make a prompt return just five days later.

Antonio Williams: Added to Bills' practice squad
Williams (neck) was added to the Bills' practice squad Wednesday.
Williams missed time during camp due to a neck stinger that he sustained in Buffalo's preseason opener against the Lions. The 23-year-old stood out in Week 17 last year when he recorded 12 carries for 63 yards and two touchdowns while hauling in his lone target for 20 yards.... See More ... See Less
Antonio Williams: Cut loose by Buffalo
Williams (neck) was waived by Buffalo on Tuesday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
Williams enjoyed a fantastic Week 17 for the Bills last season, scoring his first two NFL touchdowns, but that was when the team had injury issues at running back and had already secured the AFC East crown. A stinger didn't help his cause to try to make a run at a final 2021 roster spot, though the Bills likely planned to keep Taiwan Jones all along given the latter's special teams prowess. Williams is an option for the practice squad.... See More ... See Less
Bills' Antonio Williams: Still missing time
Williams (neck) remained absent from Wednesday's practice session, Dante Lasting of the Bills' official site reports.
Williams is in the running for one of the final running back spots, but he's probably on the outside looking in at this stage unless the Bills keep five backs. Devin Singletary, Zack Moss and Matt Breida all should have spots secured, and Taiwan Jones is valued for his contributions on special teams. Williams' injury isn't helping his cause.... See More ...

Bills' Antonio Williams: Out Saturday
Williams (neck) will not suit up for Saturday's preseason game against the Bears, Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News reports.
Williams is currently nursing a neck stinger. He has been sidelined since Monday, and the Bills will opt to err on the side of caution. He is firmly behind Devin Singletary, Zack Moss and Matt Breida on the depth chart, so a return sooner rather than later will be advantageous for his chances to make an impression.... See More ...

Bills' Antonio Williams: Still out due to stinger
Williams missed Monday's practice due to a stinger suffered in Friday's preseason win over Detroit, Maddy Glab of the Bills' official site reports.
Sometimes players can return pretty quickly from stingers, so we'll see if Williams can get back to practice ahead of this week's preseason game against the Bears. With Devin Singletary, Zack Moss and Matt Breida seemingly locks to make the team, Williams may need to show something special on the field with time running short in order for the Bills to give him roster consideration....

Bills' Antonio Williams: Leaves Friday with stinger
Williams suffered a stinger during Friday's preseason game at Detroit and is questionable to return, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
Since he signed with the Bills as an undrafted free agent in May 2020, Williams has moved between the active roster and practice squad, seeing the field Week 17 last season via elevation. On 28 offensive snaps, he recorded 12 carries for 63 yards and two touchdowns while hauling in his only target for 20 yards. With Devin Singletary, Zack Moss (hamstring) and Matt Breida on the depth chart in front of him, Williams may have a tough path to the regular-season roster, especially with an injury in tow....
