Buffalo Bills running back Karlos Williams showed up to minicamp running a little heavy this year.

And you know what? That’s totally fine. He’s about to play football under the summer sun, he’ll lose those pounds in no time. What’s interesting here is why exactly Williams showed up to camp with a few extra pounds.

The reason? “The injury of pregnancy.”

“It definitely is a first, but I like to eat, and then [my fiancé] being pregnant gave me an excuse to eat, so eating anything and everything,” Williams said Tuesday. “She’d wake up one or two o’clock. ‘I want a snack.’ Well, I’m not going to sit here and watch you eat because I don’t want you to feel bad, but it’s back to football. She’s getting back to working out herself, so kind of motivating each other, feed off each other’s energy, and we’re getting ready for camp.”

This makes total sense. Have you ever watched your roommate scarf down a pizza while you repeatedly open the fridge praying to happen upon some food you missed the previous eight times? Food envy is very real. It sounds like Williams and his fiancé have a great relationship.
