Broncos WR Kyle Williams out for season with Achilles injury
Saturday August 1st, 2015

Denver Broncos wide receiver Kyle Williams will miss the 2015 season after sustaining an Achilles injury during practice on Saturday, he announced on Instagram.

Williams was carted off the field during Saturday's practice after sustaining an injury while returning a punt.

The 27-year-old did not play last season after sustaining a shoulder injury in the Kansas City Chiefs' final preseason game. His 2012 and 2013 seasons was also cut short after tearing his ACL in back-to-back years.

Williams' full Instagram post can be read below:

“Unfortunately, today I suffered an injury to my Achilles and will consequently be missing this season. 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.”
