Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 4 vs PHI (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 0 / 0 rec)

Jamaal Williams caught one pass for zero yards after being injured on the first play from scrimmage for the Packers. Williams was hit with a nasty helmet to helmet tackle that resulted in him being carted off the field. He posted to social media that he was released from the hospital and has avoided serious injury, but the third year back will still miss some games while the Packers keep a close eye on his recovery. Dexter Williams will be the next man up but will need to adjust quickly after the Packers made him inactive for non-injury related reasons this past week.

2019 Week 3 vs DEN (12 / 59 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 27 / 0 rec)

Jamaal Williams rushed 12 times for 59 yards and caught two passes on two targets for 27 yards. Despite not having the talent of Aaron Jones, Williams has managed to stick with the Packers (and in the NFL for that matter) due to his ability to do the little things. He is a no-nonsense runner and has learned to pick up whatever yards the defense is giving him downfield. This game was a great example of how Williams fits in with the Packers and why he splitting time nearly evenly with Jones. With the Broncos putting pressure on the Packers offensive line, Jones was having trouble bouncing runs outside and wasn't able to use his speed and agility to break into the second level of the Broncos defense. Williams on the other hand was content with trading two and three yard runs with ones that he could break through the line and gain 10 or 12 yards. In a way, his early struggles as a running back have given Williams a unique patience that allows him to get better the more he touches the ball. Williams is also very good in pass protection, and understands the right moment to break off his block and become a receiver for Rodgers. He gained two first downs on catches of 10 and 17 yards which kept drives alive for the Packers.

2019 Week 2 vs MIN (9 / 28 / 0 rush, 4 / 3 / 13 / 1 rec)

Williams was able to score on an inside screen out of a two back set to open the scoring, but otherwise was quiet on his touches. He got a good helping of carries and targets, but was unremarkable with the ball in his hands. Williams did run efficiently and fell forward on most carries, but he is clearly the inferior runner and won't have relevance unless Jones goes down.
