The Bills waived running back Karlos Williams in August after an offseason that saw him gain a lot of weight and earn a four-game suspension from the league for violating the substance-abuse policy.

They may be reversing course on their decision to part ways with Williams. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Williams, who served his suspension while he was a free agent, is visiting the team on Thursday and that he is expected to re-sign with the club.

Mike Rodak of ESPN.com adds that it is unclear whether he will be returning to the active roster or to the practice squad.

LeSean McCoy has gotten the large majority of the work at tailback through the first four weeks of the season with 84 touches while the rest of the other running backs on the roster have 20 between them. Williams scored nine touchdowns on 104 touches last season and gave the team a bulkier option between the tackles than they’ve had on the roster since his departure.
