Report: Karlos Williams expected to return to Bills

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 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.

    If his weight is down and hes ready to focus on football, then hes a great addition to a running attack thats quickly picking up steam.

    That said, if he pulls antics like those of this past summer, he could be out in the cold.

    Expected to sign…a fat, slow plodding, druggie who was cut for those reasons a little over a month ago….

    Your point is what exactly?

    joetoronto, why do you need multiple user names?

    Everyone deserves another chance in life.

    Almost everyone deserves. another chance,
    Multiple username Joe Toronto does not.
    Does anyone else suspect he is really the scorned Jon Bon Jovi ?

    Joe Toronto need many names in case his Mom decides to turn his CPU on. If any of you remember about 15 years ago a Giants fan did a video after a game the Giants lost? LMAO. The guy was broken down heart broken crying and said his life was ruined by the Giants loss? That my friends was joetoranto from East Rutherford NJ

    If thatnfamous kick had made it through the uprites instead of going wide right? Joe Toronto would not have existed after that fateful night.

  12. mongo3401 says: Oct 6, 2016 2:33 PM

    I meant a chance for Marlos Williams. Even Joe Toronto needs chances. Without chance he would not survive the G men getting clogged 👻

    Rodak actually said practice squad? Someone must be day drinking. Welcome back Karlos,hopefully you learned how football can be taken away from you pretty quick.

    If he can return to his form of last year, the Bills will lead the NFL in rushing again.

  15. brendafortheboyz says: Oct 6, 2016 3:07 PM

    Everyone needs a second chance. It’s up to them to make the most of it!!

    I totally forgot Reggie Bush was still in the league until that guy above said his name.
    He won that super bowl with the Saints and ever since then he’s been playing on listless, hopeless teams.

  17. spillertime21 says: Oct 6, 2016 3:34 PM

    Hahahah . He crushed everyone w that “NOT” joke.
    Jusmore proof he actually is stuck in 1990

    Karlos Williams – RB – Free Agent

    The Bills have canceled their workout with free agent RB Karlos Williams.

    Hahahha aaaa…tell us again Bills fans how excited you are about a guy that can’t even get a tryout?!

  19. idoubtiwillbother says: Oct 6, 2016 4:50 PM

    Hope he does sign. The rookie Williams finally got in a game and did bubkis.

    Joe Toronto, you aren’t getting an NFL team. Learn to live with it and stop hating on the Bills for rejecting your boring city.
