On Monday, Williams reached a milestone that even his most optimistic supporters didn’t think possible a few short weeks ago. Cadillac was named Tampa’s Week One starting running back. (Williams may be the first pro to successfully return from two patella tendons, but they don’t keep records for these kind of things.)
Coach Raheem Morris just changed offensive coordinators, but it’s believed he plans to roll with a running back rotation led by Williams, who will get the first two series of the game. Derrick Ward will get two series after that, with Earnest Graham working as the third back.
The order and usage of the three backs could change by the week and is sure to drive fantasy owners crazy.
Williams’ story, however, is a human one that all of his Buccaneers teammates, including Ward and Graham, can surely appreciate.
