Tramon Williams expects to be ready for season opener

Packers Camp Football AP

The Packers have been without two of their top cornerbacks recently with both Tramon Williams and Casey Hayward sidelined by injuries, but Williams still feels confident that he’ll be ready to go when the bell rings to start the season.

Williams is trying to recover from a bone bruise in his knee and said Thursday that his research into the way other athletes, including NBA star Dwyane Wade, have dealt with the injury has told him that a cautious approach is the best one. So while Williams thought he’d be able to play by now, he’s concentrating more on being ready for the start of the regular season and thinks he’ll be able to make it on the field for that game against the 49ers.

“Obviously, if it was up to me I’d be practicing,” Williams said, via Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “But it’s something that you never want to rush, especially a bone bruise. It’s pretty painful. Those things are pretty painful. So you have to be careful with those things. A lot of guys who have had them, research-wise, it kind of lingers for a while. So you don’t want to come right back on it. I’m just trying to take my time with it at this point and continue to get treatment. It’s starting to feel better by the day, so that’s all I can ask for.”

Whether Williams will be able to be the player he was a few years ago won’t be known until he’s on the field, but the Packers could use all the options they can get at corner right now. If he’s not able to make it back for the start of the regular season, they’ll need to rely heavily on Sam Shields, Micah Hyde and Davon House to stop opposing passing games.

    He’ll be a lame horse all season.

    So that noodle-legged Williams chick is missing the preseason because he has a bruise on his leg?

  3. filthymcnasty1 says: Aug 15, 2013 4:29 PM

    Tramon has been key to beating the hapless, tasteless Vikings and Bears twice per season for each of the past 3 years, so his return will be celebrated by everyone looking forward to the Packers continuing their domination of this division.

    I get confused, is Tramon the one who pooped in a girls closet, the one who raped a 14 year old, the one who just sucks at football?

    More Jets quarterback news please.

    If they rely on Micah Hyde and Devon House they’re probably going to be in a LOT of trouble. They have other DBs like Nixon who have looked better than those guys. But they need Williams and Hayward when the games start to count.

    Spielman little different having a bone bruise in the preseason and sit out vs sitting out with a muscle bruise in a playoff game. Your boy will never live that down just like Cutler cant but at least he attemted to play.

    Sorry Mr. Alper, on that pathetic D there is NO such thing as a top cornerback…

  9. sandblastermoron says: Aug 15, 2013 5:24 PM

    Like he cares???? He got paid!!!! Besides Fabio the D is a complete JOKE!!! I wouldn’t want to play with all those hapless losers on D-fense!!!!!

    Wow if the Packers D is pathetic as the 11th ranked defense I wonder what the hell kind of adjectives we should throw at the minnesota’s, inept, feckless, hopeless, abhorrent, shameful, ghastly?

    Help a brother out.

    Yikes.

    Tramon is a main reason why this defense is called SOFT.

  14. truthserum4u says: Aug 15, 2013 5:55 PM

    Everything he said about a bone bruise is accurate. They are incredibly painful and take so long to completely heal.

    What’s up with the Packers and injuries over the last several years? Pattern or anomaly?

    Ok son. I’m feeling charitable. First, go on the Biggest Loser. Get rid of the curd lard. Burn that fake,worthless stock. Divorce your sister….then cross the border to MN and trek to the REAL home of football…the MetroDome! We just might accept you….

    Nice stats. But Adrian Peterson has still been a LOSER 6 times to the Packers over the last 3 seasons.

    Why don’t you brag about the punting stats in losses while you’re at it.

    Why do you always forget that the Vikes beat the Pack in week 17 last year when you constantly post the same moronic thing?

    C’MON TRAMON!!! With that bone bruise, you’re going to bailing waaaaaaay faster than you did last year when you saw AP running downhill. NOBODY on GB wants to see AP coming downhill!!!! Not a one!!!
    The new helmet rule….is going to help AP rather than hurt. I am not sure if you are aware, but Green Bay’s DB’s can no longer missle themselves into AP’s legs. They will have to fit, wrap and pull……….GOOD LUCK with that!!!
    AP will destroy peeps again this year. Thanks for the new rule!!!!

  19. firestarter0728 says: Aug 15, 2013 6:32 PM

    Wow, the fear emanating from these Viking fans is almost palpable. The lame jokes and comments are their pathetic way of trying to cover it up.

    Chalk up another championshipless campaign for the sad Vikings franchise. SKOL!!!

    Real home of football? I think I just threw up in my mouth a little.

    And the constant bashing on the Pack’s D perfectly illustrates the dim-witted views of the average Viking fan.
    Green Bay allowed less points and yards in 2012, than the Purple Pukes, while ringing up 20 more sacks than they did.

    If our defense is pathetic, what does that say about yours?

    Thumbs up if you can’t stand Spielman

  23. thepvyharvin says: Aug 15, 2013 6:52 PM

    Let us talk real for a moment Pack knobs. You have been the darling of the North for some time. Hope you enjoyed it because times change in the NFL. Vikings are moving up. Young and talented. Packers are on the way down. Deal with it. You should become relevant again in 8-10 years. have a good evening.

    ______

    Do you have to make up stats to make yourself feel good? Green Bay had 47 sacks, Minnesota had 44. Or maybe you’re just bad at math.

    I think I see what you did there. Green Bay gave up 51 sacks on offense and Minnesota gave up 32. That’s close to a 20-sack difference.

  25. wafflestomp says: Aug 15, 2013 7:16 PM

    Rick, you are absolutely right, my bad. (Even brilliant Packer fans make mistakes. <—- a bit of sarcasm.)
    My sack differential did seem too good to be true, but it doesn't really change my overall point. Does it?

  26. filthymcnasty1 says: Aug 15, 2013 7:56 PM

    The vile hatred for the Packers that you see on display here in these comments is a direct result of Viking fan feelings of inferiority and self loathing.

    In simpler terms, they’re sore losers.

    Have to take it easy on him. Personally, I think he is really a Packer fan who was standing in line with the children and didn`t get his mini-helmet autographed, or, when you are a Viking fan and there is nothing positive to read about or comment about on your own team you come on the Packer`s site and comment on almost every article posted. 50 plus years of futility will do that to you. Your team losing 4 Superbowls will do that to you. Or as the coach said, “When you put on that purple, something happens to you”.

    I just don’t get it when people just spout this stuff off without any though or logic to it. The Packers are just as young as any other team in the North. There is absolutely no reason to believe they are on the decline.

    Those that believe they are, I challenge you to actually provide reasons for it, rather that just saying it. Oh that’s right, this is the internet. You don’t have to back up your words with facts.

    Didn’t Tramon get murdered by Zimmerman?

  30. judsonjr says: Aug 16, 2013 1:19 PM

    He really just hasn’t been the same since the injury. I suspect he’ll be cut next year with almost 10M in cap hit (2M dead) coming. Presume that $ will go to Shields if he has another decent year.

    The worst play he made last year was when he literally backed away from Megatron on a lofty bomb. He was in position to make a play, had a view of the ball, and he just backed off.

  31. arsenic510 says: Aug 16, 2013 1:32 PM

    Whats the point of rushing him back? The helpless Pack are gonna get recked by the 49ers AGAIN!

  32. contra74 says: Aug 16, 2013 2:09 PM

    They should rest their starters during Week 1. Whats the point of exposing them to a game where they will get torched and, more than likely, injured. Afterall, they are soft.

    Doesnt matter what team someone cheers for. A bad defense is a bad defense. People call it how they see it and yes the packers have a bad defense. The secondary gets out of the way of runningbacks like Peterson and the front seven cant stop mobile QBs like Kaepernick. Its an all-around bad D.
