Bills running back Karlos Williams didn’t have a great offseason.
Williams showed up for minicamp overweight, something he blamed on eating too much while with his pregnant fiancee during the offseason, and then was suspended for the first four games of the season by the NFL for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy. He’s on the non-football illness list at training camp as he tries to get into better condition and move past a run of bad news that’s halted the momentum he built while running for 517 yards as a rookie.
“I’m very disappointed in myself,” Williams said, via the Buffalo News. “I put the organization, my teammates, my family in a very bad situation. I only can learn from my mistakes this offseason and get ready to get back in shape, get ready to play football and move forward.”
The Bills have rookie Jonathan Williams, Mike Gillislee and Boom Herron on the roster along with LeSean McCoy and they have shown interest in adding Reggie Bush, so Williams can’t take a spot in the offense for granted once he’s both fit enough to play and past his suspension.
