Greedy Williams, former LSU DB, designated to return to Browns from injured reserve
The Browns secondary will be getting a boost on Sunday, as former LSU turned Cleveland Browns CB Greedy Williams is expected to return to the team from the injured reserve list.
On Wednesday, multiple sources reported that Williams was eligible to come off IR and return to practice and was expected to do so. The news of his return comes after Williams suffered a hamstring injury and missed the first 4 games of the season.

Williams has been a football standout since his days at LSU, including being the 2018 Thorpe Award finalist, 2018 first team All-American from Walter Camp and 2017-18 first team All-SEC selection. After making 6 interceptions in 2017, Williams became the first LSU player since Craig Steltz in 2007 to lead the SEC in interceptions.
After Williams was drafted by the Browns in the second round (46th overall) of the 2019 NFL Draft, he has also been a producer for the Browns. The cornerback logged 47 tackles in his rookie year before missing the 2020 season with a shoulder injury. Last season, Williams recorded 88 tackles and 2 interceptions in 16 games.
Williams and the Browns will be back in action on Sunday against the Chargers.
