Draft Scout Kyle Williams News
08/09/16 - WR Kyle Williams, who missed the last two seasons with shoulder and Achilles injuries, averaged 24 yards per kick return and 8.1 yards per punt return from 2010 through 2013 with the San Francisco 49ers and Denver Broncos. He could vault on to the radar Thursday in the Jets' preseason opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

08/02/15 - WR Kyle Williams suffered a season-ending Achilles injury at training camp practice Saturday. Williams, 27, was carted off the practice field after going down awkwardly in punt-return drills.
Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak confirmed that Williams suffered a serious injury.
"It's his Achilles," Kubiak said after practice. "He wasn't even touched; just feel bad for him. I know he's disappointed."
Williams said on Instagram that he tore his Achilles and won't play in 2015.
"Unfortunately, today I suffered an injury to my Achilles and will consequently be missing this season," Williams wrote. "It's hard for me at this point to make sense of all of this but at the end of the day I understand and trust God's plan for me. My determination to get back and my work ethic will not diminish and I will eventually get back to full strength. I appreciate all those who have reached out and all of those who are praying. You all mean more to me than u know. Thank you."
Williams was moving up to field a punt when his leg buckled.
"I was right next to him when it happened," said Broncos running back C.J. Anderson. "It's devastating. Especially for him in his position when you know he's been going through (injuries) four years in a row. He's been trying to get back. We know he was a good player when he played for San Francisco and then he's been having bad breaks. We just keep him in our prayers."
The 5-foot-10, 186-pound Williams, a six-year veteran, suffered an ACL tear while with the San Francisco 49ers. The 49ers cut Williams in November 2013. After being picked up by the Kansas City Chiefs, the receiver suffered another torn ACL.
