Williams will have an opportunity to stick with the Cardinals next season, but a roster spot isn't guaranteed, the Cardinals' official site reports. At the scouting combine Friday, coach Bruce Arians said, "Ryan has a chance this year. He went into training camp [last year] and missed the entire preseason. It's very hard to become a player during the season when you miss the entire preseason...The big thing, he came to work every day. The consistency of showing up to work every day, that will be the big thing for him in training camp this year."

Williams (knee) participated fully in practice Monday, the Cardinals' official site reports. Coach Bruce Arians relayed, "And Ryan [Williams] is full speed, so we're fully healthy at running back."

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Of the two players unable to take part in drills, top back Rashard Mendenhall (knee) was one of them. While Arians expects him to be ready for Week 1, it should be noted that Williams is ranked No. 2 on the depth chart, which could result in a fair workload, if Mendenhall is at all hindered for the opener. The RB picture should become more clear as the weekend approaches.

2012

An early selection in the second round of the 2011 draft, Williams suffered a season-ending knee injury in training camp. It wasn't your garden variety ACL either, as he tore his patellar tendon, resulting in his kneecap ending up in his thigh with damage to his meniscus as well. The Cardinals didn't sign or draft a running back in the offseason, so they must feel reasonably comfortable with Williams' recovery, especially with Beanie Wells being so injury prone. Arizona went 7-2 over the final nine games last year and added Michael Floyd alongside Larry Fitzgerald, so if Kevin Kolb can make the leap, there's potential for this offense. But Williams enters 2012 firmly behind Wells on the depth chart, and at press time, the Cardinals medical staff reportedly believed Week 3, rather than the start of the season, was a more realistic timetable for Williams' return.

2011

The Cardinals selected Williams early in the second round of the draft, ignoring many other seemingly more pressing needs. The team claims it had Williams rated as the No. 15 player on their board, and the value was too good to pass up, but it also clearly sends a message to incumbent Chris Wells, who had an injury-marred and disappointing second season. After rushing for 1,655 yards with 21 touchdowns in 2009, Williams ran for only 477 yards and nine scores last year, as he became a part of a rotation. He possesses plus vision with strong instincts and hands, but it remains to be seen if he’s more the back who looked like a future star as a Virginia Tech freshman, or the one who disappointed last year. Don’t be surprised if the pick motivates Wells, who shouldn’t be written off yet if he can stay healthy. The coaching staff likely wants Williams to win the job, so he’s the safer choice, but ultimately this probably ends up as a committee.
