Indianapolis Colts RB Jonathan Williams (chest) was diagnosed with a broken rib Sunday, Aug 18. The injury isn't believed to be a long-term issue.
Huddle Up: Williams is near the bottom of a depth chart led by RB Marlon Mack and also featuring Nyheim Hines, Jordan Wilkins and D'Onta Foreman. The injury further hurts his chances of making the final roster.

New Orleans Saints RB Jonathan Williams saw some work with the first-team offense in the preseason game Friday, Aug. 17, against the Arizona Cardinals. He had a seven-yard run and a 19-yard rush behind the first-teamers, but he appeared to miss a blitz pickup in the second quarter.
Huddle Up: Williams has had a couple of decent performances in the preseason, as he challenges veterans Shane Vereen and Terrance West for the third running back job behind Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara. Unless one of the stars in the top two spots go down, whomever wins the No. 3 job is still not terribly useful from a fantasy perspective.

Buffalo Bills RB Jonathan Williams was waived Sunday, Sept. 3.
Huddle Up: This move leaves the bills perilously thin at running back behind LeSean McCoy, as fullback Mike Tolbert and journeyman Joe Banyard appear to be the main backups for now. Considering McCoy's history of soft-tissue injuries, it is very likely the Bills are on the verge of signing a running back in the very near future. Williams will almost certainly find a new home, but being unable to stick with a running back-needy team like Buffalo does not speak well for his long-term future.

Buffalo Bills RB Jonathan Williams (hamstring) participated in practice Friday, Aug. 11, even though he suffered a hamstring injury during the first preseason game.
Huddle Up: Williams appears to be on track to be the No. 2 running back for the Bills this season. He will only see limited touches as long as LeSean McCoy is healthy and probably should only be selected as a possible handcuff to McCoy.

Buffalo Bills RB Jonathan Williams (hamstring) suffered a hamstring injury in a 17-10 loss to the Minnesota Vikings in the preseason Thursday, Aug. 10.
Huddle Up: As the primary backup to an aging running back in a run-heavy offense, Williams should be considered one of the top handcuffs this season -- if this injury turns out to be minor.

Buffalo Bills RB Jonathan Williams won't be disciplined by the NFL under the substance abuse policy. Williams was recently found not guilty in a case involving a DWI.
Huddle Up: Williams is expected to be the team's second running back behind Shady McCoy with Mike Gillislee bolting to New England. He's worth a late-round flyer and could be an RB4 if McCoy's workload is scaled back at all.

Buffalo Bills RB Jonathan Williams has worked on improving his ball security this offseason after head coach Sean McDermott said it was an area Williams needed to work on. Williams lost two fumbles on 28 carries in 2016.
Huddle Up: Williams should be the No. 2 running back for the Bills this season and will see limited work behind LeSean McCoy. Owners in fantasy leagues could consider Williams as a late-round option and a possible handcuff to McCoy.

Buffalo Bills RB Jonathan Williams' development will be vital to the Bills' future success, according to head coach Sean McDermott.
Huddle Up: Williams is an underrated weapon for the Bills with Mike Gillislee gone. Williams takes over the backup role behind LeSean McCoy and is a good handcuff candidate despite missing five games in his rookie year.

Buffalo Bills RB Jonathan Williams was arrested Thursday, July 14, and has been charged with driving while intoxicated.
Huddle Up: It's been quite an offseason for backup Buffalo RBs, and now the rookie fifth-round pick likely will be facing some league discipline. With fellow backup Karlos Williams facing a four-game substance-abuse suspension, Mike Gillislee and Dan Herron look like they will open the season as the primary backups to LeSean McCoy.
